QE2 on Facebook.
« on: Nov 24, 2012, 12:32 AM »
Of course there is the forum's QE2 page on Facebook: http://facebook.com/theqe2story

My new Cunard Facebook page has so far been quite QE2-centric: http://www.facebook.com/chriscunard

There is also the memories of QE2.

And the online Wardie: http://facebook.com/groups/2550025714

I believe that several of us are members of Facebook, and of course we enjoy pictures and stories of QE2 appearing there (and in various other places too).

The problem with Facebook is that we are not all members (and, speaking from my own experience of Facebook so far, I would not recommend that we all take out membership... I am often on the point of abandoning it as an experiment gone wrong...). So, when one of us tells a QE2 story there, or uploads a QE2 picture to a Facebook site, we do not all have access to it -- even if they were to write a message in the Forum, pointing us to the relevant Facebook page.

Here in the Forum, on the other hand, we have a great collection of memories, stories, facts and figures, and we have a great gallery where we can upload pictures. And all that is permanent, and it is searchable, and it is open and available to everyone, whether or not they are members of the Forum.

It would therefore be excellent if those who enjoy writing stories and uploading pictures of QE2 on Facebook could also copy them here for us all to enjoy together, and perhaps to comment or ask questions.

I often regret the transitory nature of Facebook -- messages are here today, gone tomorrow, sinking ever lower on the page until they entirely disappear, and there is no way to bookmark them and find them again when one wants to later on.

Here in the Forum, on the other hand, they are easy to find at any time, and we can all enjoy them. Looking forward to many more!   :)
