I would have to totally agree with what you said. I am not much of a FB person, sure I have an account and have whittled down my "Friends" to people I truly know and the ones we want to to wheelin or out to dinner, drink a few adult pops we are going to text.I haven't been active on here ever really (see post count) , but I am more of a lurker than a poster. As such, I find forums to be about a million times more useful than Facebook or Instagram. I have actual people I can speak to in the real world if I just want to be social, but a tech thread on a forum is can be useful 10 years down the road. I see a lot of forums withering away, but they still have a lot of value in my opinion.
