    too funny.

    Personally I find FB very hard to follow. Lots of pictures, lots of adverts but when it comes to a discussion that has anything worth reading, No the discussions are all very fleeting and no depth of knowledge

    AA facebook is customisable, I don’t see pics of people’s food because I either unfriend or unfollow anyone who posts stuff I’m not interested in. So my FB feed is pretty much all horses and dogs

    But yes discussions are very hard to follow on FB, some of the pages are too big and have a lot of know-nothings handing out advice like they are somehow qualified to do so. Some of the pages are good though, Foal club and some of the classical and dressage pages have a lot of knowledgeable people contributing which is always interesting to read. You have to pick and choose the groups you join and the people you follow to get the most out of it. I don’t think FB can replace forums for a good discussion simply because the format isn’t optimal for that.

    Agree TeeTee. It took me quite some time to learn how to use it. I've now culled many groups because it was teenage waffle, and join serious groups with known and named experts.
    I found out how to stop all notifications on various groups such as second hand horse gear and Vet groups and only go to that page if I want to check out something. My Emergency style pages during the fire season have great updates and are set to be at the top at all times and email me.
    It's invaluable for keeping an eye on family especially my aging mother who lives alone. I can see that she was active half an hour ago etc and so can she. So if it's 3.30am and my son or me or my husband has a green light she knows she can phone them .

    I used to come on here a lot, but the discussions have been boring, so donít so much anymore; however came on yesterday and today to read two worth while threads, neither of them to do with horses! There are some very intelligent people on here! Keep up the great debates and I will be back for more

    Hi All.. I agree.. when I think of the huge role played by Cyberhorse in our 2011 flood adventure, and the subsequent friendships we made.. followed by the gasps of shock horror when I announced I was crossing to the dark side and becoming a reiner !!.. Cyberhorse is actually a great historical archive and I hope it stays around lurking in cyberspace
