    Sam has deactivated his own forum and moved his operations to FB.  This is a bit of an issue for those of us who do not use FB.  From the original site I acquired COMMAND POST sheets for the French, Allies, Soviets, Germans and Italians.  What I was wondering was if he has done updates for Poland, Norway, Greece, Hungary or Romania.  Is anyone registered on his FB site and knows if there are any details for these?

    Can’t you piggy-back onto someone else’s FB account in order to join the group?  I refuse to join FB, but fortunately my partner is not so choosy, and so I have pretty much hijacked her account!

    The Poland and Romania Command Posts are available on the Honour site. Don’t know if anything’s been done with the others

    What is it with wargaming firms opening up or moving business to Facebook, it seems to me they are restricting their window of sales opportunities.  Like others I don’t do Facebook, that is a personal choice.  However what is the advantage of Facebook forum over the interweb thingy verse?  I ask as to my limited understanding it seems restrictive?  Feel free to correct me, maybe as I am over 60 it does not work on my radar?

    I only use FB for support groups for our son with special needs, otherwise of little interest or use to be honest. I think they may be dropping forums and moving to FB because it’s free?

    A few points:

    [1] Facebook hasn’t been cool for years. Teenagers thinks it’s what their grandparents use.
    [2] There are many excellent free options for support forums such as groups.io etc.
    [3] Businesses switching to Facebook is an attempt to achieve maximum volume & reach with minimum effort.
    [4] If you don’t run an adblocker & other security aids Facebook will follow you everywhere.

    I think Facebook has become the Internet for average users with no technical understanding who don’t mind “being the product”.

    Were it not for TWW and Crom’s Anvil I would not have a FB account.
    From a reach POV, having a FB group is all well and good, but the content won’t be found outside that FB group, not on FB proper and certainly not from a search engine.

    Oddly enough, I was listening to a non-fiction Audio Book by author Claire Cook, it is actually quite good.  In it, she gives advice on re-inventing yourself, I found it useful even though I am not a 40+ woman but a 40+ man.

    In it she recommends that you build an online platform independent of any social media, then you post that link etc out to as many social media locations as it makes sense to.  That way you get the best of both worlds, you are not tied to a platform but you can take advantage of them.

    Food for thought.

     

    PS- I hate FB too…

    Many thanks for all the input.  I can understand people wanting to use FB to monitor postings but it does surrender some control and impedes those of us not using it.

    [3] Businesses switching to Facebook is an attempt to achieve maximum volume & reach with minimum effort.

    Quite so.

    Brilliant!  Many thanks, just the sort of thing I wanted.  I did not realise that the HONOUR site still had material on it.  Very helpful.  A bit disappointing that the Poles still get a ‘cavalry charge’.  I guess you could read it as the cavalry using their mobility to get their anti-tank guns in place to smash the German tanks but they only let it have an impact on combat with non-tank units!  In reality the cavalry ambushed and smashed the advancing German tanks.  They seem to have fallen for the German propaganda; I will have to delete their reference to only being available when the Germans have no armoured units in the combat.
