Yes Arthur, we are now battling with many Face book pages dedicated to finches and other bird species. AFF being what it is, is quite formal compared to Face book where anyone can post and say what they like even off topic.
The only real benefit of AFF is that all our posts on any subject can and is archived where FB is once posted and it's gone. AFF is a bit behind the times as far as posting pics and videos which is a backward step compared to FB but we can post larger pics.
AFF is being used to sell our merchandise through FB but only by registered members but can buy for non members through members, but this happens at bird sales anyway
Due to not being able sell our merchandise this year at most bird sales has been a disadvantage but to be honest a lot of merch has gone out through Aus Post through FB
Our membership is still growing and it can be seen by the tally and who's on line but i think they are reading more than posting on anything hence the archives.
Winter is always low on participation and has been since i've been a member. Participation usually goes up from now with the coming breeding season.
Anyway, if you or any member thinks we could do something better or have any idea's on how we can have more participation other than a News letter then please let us know.

Regards Craig

Maybe monitor aff Facebook page more often. ..like posting some of the tagged topics on here if there is anyone capable or has free time??? Like Craig says all the finch sites just in Australia is huge...and younger people more inclined to go that way imo :thumbup:

Maybe we just make our own social network :problem:
I'm the forum programmer. Please don't contact me for account/password related issues. I made AviManage to keep track of my aviaries.

Dave can you tell me how i can access that as i didn't know that. I know all major finch clubs now have a FB site added to their personal Website now, that is used mainly for discussion. But in my opinion it would kill off our Website (AFF) because we are already using it for discussion but in a much more formal organised way.

Cheers Craig

Fb is better in the sense if i wanna quickly snap a photo and upload i can.

Here i have to mess around resizing.

Info wise i find aff better. Fb has too many d heads. D heads dont survive long here.
