Annie Laurie

Facebook does some things well (notably the Messenger, which really is good), but there are a few things special purpose forums do much better:

- maintaining a discussion over the long term so it can be updated

- knowing exactly who's going to see what you write (rather than worry about exposing too much, I'm more often concerned about spending too much time writing something hardly anyone will see)

- searchability: I first heard about Martin Boland's death yesterday on Mudcat, and the person who announced it said there were hundreds of posts on Facebook about it, but can I find them? There seems to be no way to do a Google-like search for any posts on FB that mentioned him recently.
