    Nope

    Love this site! Been 'lurking' (and paying dues) for about 10 years! Someday we hope to return to THE Island with the BEST snorkling!

    Yes. Frequently. My primary use is to keep in touch with about 100 or so real-world friends and family. It's also fun and interesting to follow Bonaire businesses and organizations etc.

    I think it works okay as a semi-live streaming feed of member activity. But "posts" can't be categorized, sorted, or searched for later reference. IMHO that makes it unusable as an enthusiast's forum like BT, SB, and others. I'm a member of a couple of Yahoo forums where members and moderators have looked at FB as an alternative because Yahoo's software platform stinks nowadays. Everyone agrees that FB isn't a viable replacement, and that it doesn't provide significant incremental value or opportunity beyond the traditional forum format.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Yes I am on Facebook and follow many Bonaire related FB pages.
    But I agree with WWGUY that it cannot replace the forum of BT.

    I have a FB page. My young daughter set it up for me.

    I don't remember the password.

    I think "Brad has 1 friend(s)".

    Yes, but rarely.

    Too much noise for the signal.
