For small business guys, like me, it's called "Networking". The ability to communicate in other venues is priceless. For straightforward education, forums, like this one are the best platform. Advertising on Facebook is a plus. I consider it gauchè to advertise on forums. I'll answer legitimate questions in the furtherance of knowledge, but no "cold calls".

I agree that FB (IFFC - flat fender group) is a pain to use as far as finding solutions is concerned.  There is no search feature that I know of.  The one thing I do like is the videos and photos - it is a very visual forum and if I see something that looks interesting I can check it out. 

In my opinion, the 3A page is the easiest forum to use that I have ever encountered.  It is so easy to see recent activity, and about everything you would ever need to search for is well organized and only a click or two away. 

Scout, what I like about " Old Jeep Carbs" is that real time thread that is at the bottom of every page where you can have a short discussion with the guys.  The "shout box" I think you call it.  It seems to just be up for a day or two and not about anything in particular.  I like it!  But, the rest of the site takes some getting used to.  Dates of thread are missing, and it just seems cumbersome to navigate.  I check in now and then, but the 3A page is the go-to for me at this point. 

The 2A page is about the only place to go to for "shows and get-togethers".  It seems to be the place for all of the Willys happenings.

Combining with the 3B forum will soon push us past the 1,000 mark.
Woohoo.
