Facebook has many wonderful fauna and flora sites now.
you told us that before, and it is not that I doubt your words, but " many" is just the wrong keyword for me. The more the worse! Not only Facebook, the whole internet is full of wonderful nature sites, and the day is not long enough to follow them all - and I do not want to spend all day in front of the PC. So, what do we cut out? Of course the messy ones (like Facebook) first of all. I completely agree with Clive: it is too tedious to find old posts, so: life is simply too short to waste on that! Follow a link to Facebook? You´ll be disappointed!
Most blogs are too personal, in my opinion. (Agree with Juan P: the blog updates can be disturbing, when I follow by RSS feeds).
That´s why I prefer a good forum. Iberianatureforum is unique!
It is really a pity that everything nowadays have to be squeezed into the smaller screens of tablets and iPhones. That ruins a lot. And I suspect that is behind Google´s assasination of the unique Picasaweb last summer! Now they just offer their Google Photo site, which jams your photos into something which is more like a collage than a proper album! (if I wanted a collage, I would prefer to make it myself!) I stopped paying them for extra storage on that account!
I hope Clive is right that Facebook will start to charge private users. Then we´ll see how much people really like it!
A nasty thought: maybe what we see here is a variety of the trend spotted in American politics......... No, no, not really (?) or...
Clive, won´t it be a work for several people to ensure that the site will work on all these devices? It is just too easy to to destroy something good, and difficult to make something better. If the Iberianatureforum still has got many readers, even with only few new posts, then perhaps best to just let it keep running, at least as long as this is true, accepting the present low level of new activity?
It is now 8 years ago, I found Iberianatureforum, because it kept popping up, when searching for info about the nature here. I believe that it will continue to do so, when other people are searching.
Thanks to Clive, as well at other contributors, for all their hard work for many years!
