It's the largest group for modern Indians with lots of activity - currently stuck at 666 members.

If you're not on then go get it off that number 😁.

What better number for a "big bad biker gang"?? (joke)

Anyway, 666 isn't the number of the Beast:

While 666 is called the "number of the beast" in most manuscripts of Revelation 13:18, a fragment of the earliest papyrus 115 gives the number as 616.

Facebook, according to my kids (13 and 20) is just for all the old people now. Which means forums like this one must be for REALLY old people lol. Hands up who has a seniors card (in joke from the last ride haha). I think they're all good. The fact is there isn't a one stop solution. Yes facebook has the numbers, but not the functionality, so the best solution is really a mix of both worlds I guess.

Bugger... sorry...  but don't forget that to get to 666 you did go through that "real" number of the Beast.

Ha!  Next meet up, find out who was the 616th member and "do something"...  devious.... with them.

Yep, used to have FB when I was younger and realized then it was not a particularly good media for information dissemination.  Not particularly interested in the comings and goings of others - let alone all the trials and tribulations of their day to day lives (hmmm, read one once - which is the reason that I stopped using it - where the person said "the person on the train in front of me is talking so loud on their phone - what a …….." and at that time I thought, do I really want to be reading this crap).  I have made the conscious decision that if it only get's advertised on FB I am not interested - and for the record, I am in the IT industry and I have a seniors card 😃 (double whammy).

Consider this, you are active on facebook.  You put something up for sale, someone takes a photo of what you have for sale and it identifies something about where you live (or you put up photos of your kids blah blah), then you mention that you are going on the record attempt to broken hill in 2020 and you have booked accommodation.  This is an open invitation for some that are not so concerned about your goods to take unwarranted advantage of this situation - some would say - nah, this won't happen to me - but you would be surprised what people can glean from your facebook account.  I have seen people posting photos from their trip whilst they are on it - leaving an open invitation to some unsavoury characters.  

Others post their mobile phone numbers on facebook and were you aware that you can trace your steps using google timelines you can see some stuff like this (and if you add in facebook and other social media sites) you would not have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what is happening.

Now you may say that I am cynical, paranoid or worse but personally if I don't want to be found that is the way that it is going to be (IMHO)

Now that I have said that - If your facebook page works for you then that is great.

Hi Crash ,
What you can do before sending a post  is selecting  Private [ your friends ] /  or Public . Anyone looks up your name will see post selecting  Public . Also over the years have had friends /etc posting too much garbage there are options to minimise this .

It is whatever you choose it to be mate. You can make it as private or public as you want. Me, I share family stuff with a select few, and my larger motorcycle family everything else. It doesn't really get used for anything beyond that. I used to have news feeds and a flood of information, then one day stripped the lot. It's a much better place for me now.

I also think most of the younger generation frown on facebook as a place for the older people, I know both of my kids use things like instagram etc which I don't really like. I know when I use facebook for advertising that 30-50 year old bracket easily dominates the demographic.

I think a lot of what you wrote was true for the early days of facebook. As for security, that's my sons area, being secure on the internet is a fallacy. Even with forums like this, they are generic templates and users are given a range of information. I don't know anything about this one but the one we had (a group of traders) allowed us to see each users isp, their ip address and the name of the website they went to from our page. For me that was too much information for us to have, but it is normal in the online world. 

As you know I'm a trader, the computers that keep all my important information don't have access to the internet, all data transfer is through usb. Your industry would be much the same I suspect. Share what doesn't matter, and protect what does. 

Edit: Sorry just to clarify, it's not my group. I don't know the people who run it. I just mentioned it because it seems to be the largest group of Australian Indian owners and was stuck at the number 666.

Unless of course you know what you're doing. 😊
