Yes FB def killed it..but I feel it was a side effect of the over all world of the BBS.

With BBS you could not control who and how many did what. Your site was only as good as your moderators.

You had some who did nothing, while others used it to play God.

Think about all the Trolling that went on in BBS with so many "anonymous" accounts.

The anonymous trolls killed the BBS.

With FB you ended up having pages/groups that 1. you can easily add or delete, question before joining, check out profile somewhat. At any given time you could remove them.

You also had the option to have the groups/site hidden from public view and members can only join through a friends, thus controlling the trolls.

I would almost guarantee half the arguments, statements and views posted here would not happen on a FB controlled group.

Especially in this climate where your words/comments/trolling can be used against you and your lively hood.

It's not just FB that killed BBS...its the lower Trolling effect that did it.

Now days FB do more account verification and easy to report a troll account.
