Have message boards died because of Facebook etc?

...cos no-one ever seems to come here any more?

I look in most times I'm online just to see what's occurring  Roll Eyes but apart from the odd fight it's all a tad quiet i.e. dead.

Is this an episode in our lives that's moved on?  Will it come back? Where's Justy anyway and what's he up to?

I personally despise facebook and am not on that much either... not much anywhere really --- it is the lull before the storm. At least I like to think so. Hope you are well Chrissie and thanks for the "of the womb" thing. Had no idea.

I'm just not on line that much at the moment.  I spend more time here than I do on facebook though.  But then I spend more time on wikipedia and BBC news than anywhere else probably.  It's the internet as a whole that got old and not just message boards.

If Justin bothers releasing something this year, I'll be on more.  Maybe I can finally make Joe cry.

This board will perk up if Justin ever does anything as previously said.  But other boards are thriving. 

I spend most of my time on the Planet Rock forum these days - where there is so much discussion I can't keep up with it.  They regularly have meets across the country too - with generally around 40-50 people going, not to mention meeting up at gigs etc. 
Most of them are on Facebook too - but the PR forum is where all the fun is.

Yes, but as both singers have a love of the high notes it's going to be a concept album called "Only Dogs Can Hear Us".
