I sometimes find myself thinking I'm "competing" with Facebook groups in my niche. Yes, I have a fairly active Facebook group, but I'm not able to make a direct correlation between my FB activity and my forum's activity. When I started my forum 11 yrs ago, there weren't any FB groups, but now there are multiple FB groups in my niche and they seem to have similar activity to my forum at times. I personally feel that FB groups are inferior to a forum because: Easier searched Handle multiple discussions simultaneously better since of community But in the back of my mind I feel like I am not necessarily losing members to these groups, but I'm not gaining as many new members because of these groups. Thoughts???
