    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.
