Horse Forum Facebook Page?

Does anyone know if this Horse Forum has a Facebook page? I'd like to join it if it does! I can't seem to find it!

Facebook kills forums. I hope they never have one.

We are TINY in comparison to FB. We aren't anti FB, but we'd like to keep members networking here, building THIS community where we are horse focussed, instead of becoming lost in an ocean of folks for whom Horseforum is just a small drop in the sea.

Thanks for letting me know! I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing it if there was one!

No to Facebook for sure.

I would be in favor, and honestly do not understand why we cannot post anything from FB, like a video that may not be on Youboob.

Do Not Link To Facebook

"But, but, but..." we know, and we're sorry, but there are several reasons why links to Facebook are restricted at the Horse Forum.

First and foremost, there are many younger Internet users who don't realize or appreciate the potential danger and aggravation that sharing their real identity on a publicly accessible Internet forum can have. There are many adults who don't either, for that matter, until somebody who'd taken a particular interest in their posts, for whatever reason, follows their Facebook link and takes a less than desirable interest in their real identity.

Secondly, the Horse Forum is a social network. Facebook is a social network. Facebook has "one billion [that's 1,000,000,000] monthly active users as of October 2012." (emphasis added) See Key Facts - Facebook Newsroom. It's no secret that activity on many other Internet forums has declined since people began spending more and more of their time online at Facebook. We're not interested in seeing the Horse Forum suffer the same fate. To that end, anyone interested in discussing horses or anything else at Facebook is of course free to do so, but we ask that members not post links to Facebook here.

Its so easy to download videos on to your own computer and then download them onto your own Youtube account I see no advantage in using FB for doing that.
