So why would anyone here want to use such fora?

People who are disenchanted with FaceBook are looking for alternatives that have a similar interaction.

But how many people with such a perspective frequent these fora?

During the discussion on migrating from CHE to somewhere else, "Not FaceBook!" was a common vote.

We've had people inquire about how to migrate their Yahoo groups.

I can believe we have people who just now learned about relevant privacy concerns for linking all their accounts everywhere and find the idea of another, separate platform appealing.

I can believe we have people who just now learned that the settings to keep 'everything' private on FaceBook are a moving target and many cases exist of people finding out private posts were available to all including searchable on the internet.

In short, I doubt we have too many people who were kicked off FaceBook as part of the changing rules, but I can believe that nebo isn't the only person who would be interested in an alternative to FaceBook.

Since I avoid Falsebook like the plaguey time-sink I always saw it to be, I'm not interested in an alternative time sink.

For that, I have the fora....

The name "MeWe" has a not-quite-grown-up sound to it.

It sounds distinctly NSFW to me.
