My estimate is that there are about 600 active posters her perhaps less. I have no estimate for active Facebook users but clearly it is an active contributory site to MX. My preference is the Forum for many reasons not the least of which is that the devs live here. However I would not under estimate the value of Facebook to MX and I believe it will continue to grow.
The Forum will not go away and will continue to be the main source for MX support along with the Website in a different fashion. Facebook will not go away and be an auxiliary support venue for those who prefer it.

By the way Facebook users are often referred to the Forum for specific answers.
From Facebook data for the group, it has had 130 new members in the last 28 days, and there have been 3,400 posts, comments, and reactions in the same period.

I never opened a FB account and will not be doing so in the future. Just read their TOS and their tracking methods, it is so anti FOSS.

My relatives don't give a crap about nothing computer or data related. All they want is platform to communicate with each other other than email.

I don't over think this stuff either. To old to worry about the rest of my life.

Edit: Only way my sis will see my happy birthday wishes. She lives there.

I dislike Facebook but find it necessary to keep in contact with parts of my family and several good friends.
A long time ago I wanted to set something up where family would email a chain letter and it would make the rounds and when it got back to you you would just delete your old info and add new.
I was too busy to ever get it going. The family gravitated to Facebook. At first I told them I did not want anything to do with it. Then there were illnesses in the family and I found it to be the only place to get information, so much for resisting. I try to limit my use, but it is hard sometimes.
I do check the MX FB page once in awhile but for the most part I stay here on the forum.
