Quite right Hugh. FaceBook does take a lot of time at first, there is so much to set-up there, so many applications, settings, contacts, private pictures, music, video to upload or enter. It is like setting-up a new antennae. Once it is done it is a time saver! Privacy is great there, one can choose who sees your photos and who cannt :-) I share flower pictures with my sister but not with my mucho buddies. Hope you will join one-day.
FaceBook is NOT a travel community but a social network for family and close friends, not the public. Also, CouchSurfing is also NOT a travel community but a hosting service. We will always need GLOBO too. We need various portals for various needs. It is like having a fax machine, wireless phone AND cell-phone or like having a toilet, bidet AND a urinal :-)
