Thread Name: BS: Are fewer people posting?
Subject: RE: BS: Are fewer people posting?
I do think the advent of facebook and other on-line forums has resulted in people being drawn away from the below the line section. The BS section has shrunk considerably, and the threads that used to build and reinforce community don't happen so often and have fewer participants. I know more about what is going on in the lives of others from Mudcat now from Facebook than from here. While most of the BS threads now seem to consist of a few voices fighting the same old arguments, I don't think it is so much that 'Catters have been driven away as it is a process of evolution and dilution as the rest of the web has sort of caught up with Max's original genius.
