True. I am on a bunch of formerly-busy forums which are dead now, and always whenever they ask "why", the answer is because most of the traffic has moved over to Facebook. This comes up a lot on some classic car forums I am on... When a formerly-busy forum with convenient archive and search features dies and is replaced by a dozen or more Facebook groups, some overlapping and some competing with each other, all with horrible archiving and search functions... Its a net loss for everyone I think.
Even this forum. Is it as busy as it was five or ten years ago? I think not.
