Thread: Where have all the flowers gone?

  1. #1

    Default Where have all the flowers gone?

    Have you notice that people have disappeared from most forums? At its peak, about 3,000 members surfed here daily about 2 years ago, now it is mostly about 1,000, down about 65%!

    I believe people have gone away from public "forums" to the more private sites, like Facebook, etc.

    I think in the next few years, people will migrate to even more private multi-room site, like Whatsapp's groupchat, etc...

    It's time "to exist" the FB .

    Where have all the flowers gone?
    Long time ago
    Where have all the flowers gone?
    Girls have picked them every one
    When will they ever learn?
    always the Light, .... always.

    "Most users ever online was 3,163, 27th June 2011 at 11:25 PM."

    and before the forum upgrade .... "Most users ever online was 3,566, 1st August 2010 at 10:43 PM. "

    stats are at bottom of the main forum index page

    I think posting volume has been greatly reduced though. That much is obvious.
