    I've realised there are hardly a soul in this forum...I can't be impassible in that sense . I would like to know the background of this situation . Although my poll it turns out funny...deep inside, it's a mirage !! :D ---- Short-term, the option D is the most effective !!

    Voted.

    Facebook has destroyed forum activity in general.

    But in facebook also read us, even there people recommend this website by our reviews about books . I have proof that it is true . By way of example, People of Italian origin but English-speaking even Italian-speaking recommend a lot my review about Io non ho Paura by Niccolo Ammaniti . We are not so invisible !!

    I feel like the odd-man-out, because Facebook has never appealed much to me, even though I agree with Sparky that it seems to have drawn people away from the forums.
    Perhaps the management here could poll former members of BAR by email and inquire about why they drifted away, and any suggestions they might offer to make BAR more attractive. Testimonials might be welcome.
    ( BTW, In view of all their bad publicity lately, Facebook may be getting less attractive /evil grin/)
    Perhaps, in some ways, we should become more like the competition in order to compete? So what do they have we don't have? And what do we have they don't have?

    I don't know if an email campaign would work. I think it may have been tried in the past with not so stellar results.

    I always prefer proper forums over Facebooks for "groups".
