Facebook Goldwing sights

Post by keithg64 »

I have liked several goldwing sights on Facebook and really a lot of them are ridiculous, mean and the same questions over and over. People seem to go there for technical questions only to be slammed or belittled. And really I dont think Facebook is a place for technical questions. Another reason that I like this sight and have sent a lot of people here. How about you.

I think I agree, Facebook in my mind is a place to meet, greet, and organize social events. As to the folks focused on being rude, makes no difference where you're at. There are some people that just have to be right, whether they are or not, and have no problem letting everybody know. The fine folks here are definitely among the more polite. If you want to see the darkside, and I'm not talking car tires, travel over to one of the HD sites. Polite is not in everyone's vocabulary, with many leaning more toward direct and insulting. Sites vary, but you'll find the extreme North and South versions no matter where you go.

I don't feel that Facebook is a real good place to get good info. If you frequent a page long enough, you will see a few people who give good info/advice. Most people seem to be on there to show others just how "knowledgeable" they are. A lot of others seem to want to be what I call a "behind the screen badass". That means the ones who like to hide behind the screen of their device of choice and try to verbally push others around. From my experience, forums are a much better place to go for advice and information. Facebook is good for people who just want instant answers, maybe not the best ones. There are jerks on forums too, but they are usually limited by the moderators and will get kicked off for trying to cause too much trouble.

Unfortunately, many motorcycle owners' clubs have practically abandoned their own websites and now use Facebook - they now face the same problems outlined in the posts above. Facebook has its uses - but not many.
