G'day all

In my post which started this thread I mentioned the fact that Facebook
isn't (as far as I know) searchable by Google, Bing etc.  So an interesting
behaviour observation someone posts today will be essentially lost to
future birders.  This was not the case with birding-aus which is archived
and searchable.

Apart from that I don't really care which forum people use.  If you want to
report something that people can access in years to come post it on
birding-aus at least and Facebook as well if you wish.

People rightly reject Facebook because of all the baggage that comes with
it.  Me too!  However you can access just the groups on iOS and Android
phones and tablets without all the baggage.  Search your app store for the
Facebook Groups app.  There is no version for standard computers
unfortunately (as far as I know).

Oh, and ask anyone under 30 what they think of email as a means of
communication.  My three kids won't use it.
