And doggone it, there'll be an ad I genuinely want to see, but it'll flip to another ad.

And all the more reason to avoid letting FB inundate all the Pond Boss folk with what they think is correct and what we should be "interested in " to see and buy. I am convinced that FB knows way more about you than you could ever imagine. Just watch your computer and see how magically FB knows what other sites you have gone to and what interests you have , even with the most restrictive settings you choose.

We should focus on how we can use SM to help PB reach people - turn the tables on them (social media) but not give them access to us.

That's actually a great point. Doing a "roll call" when we're not in "peak" pond season may yield weaker results than if you were to do one in the late spring or summer, when everything comes back to life from this terrible winter we've had.

Steve, yes, that's the point that Bill Cody was also making.

DannyMac, I run an ad blocker, so I don't see any of those ads on Pond Boss.

Count me out too, if that happens.

When I want to understand a scientific area, I use Google Scholar. Sometimes differing views are expressed on this forum. If so, I head to the primary scientific literature and see what's been researched and what results were found. We are all naturally biased which is why scientists need to be trained to push that bias aside. Even so, double-blind studies are often conducted to avoid this bias, even for well-trained scientists. I find that it is enlightening to listen to my adult children to see what their views are. Just residing in an echo chamber does not promote growth. Respectful dialog among folks with different beliefs just doesn't happen enough.

No need for scare quotes re facts. I mentioned a fact about criminal behavior that has well established in the literature for over fifty years and got put in FB jail for my trouble. Not because it wasn't true, they didn't even dispute that, but because they didn't like it.

^^^^^That right there^^^^^

Facebook is fine for banter and chit-chat. It is not an archival platform. Poof - gone down the memory hole never to be seen again.

These "old fashioned" discussion boards are like time machines.
