I'm old enough to have seen many fashions come and go. And anything that is 'in' today will eventually be 'out', if not tomorrow, the day after.

I'm going to corner the market in selling fax machines to that under-24 market....

hahahaha Francesca, a woman NEVER tells her age.... I'm just glad I'm aging. I have friends that never will. Isn't that sad? Live for today! Make memories! For tomorrow will never come.

I'm active on FB and made many friends that I've met face-to-face and camped with. I have learned to use FB features that work for me, while avoiding their 'money-maker' apps. I don't play games on it, and use it for a purely social connection. For that purpose its a winner in my book.

Glad to hear that they're still passing around that rumor FB is dying. It leaves more room for those of us that are putting it to good advantage

Facebook Posts

How do I get off all of these Facebook posts. Which by the way I only responded to someone who suggested that I look at a Facebook post. I wrote nothing other than that Facebook was not a friend of mine and that I preferred to get information in another way. If I could have found my way to send Pam a private message I would have done so but I am still trying to figure out the site labyrinth.

Frank, what Facebook posts are you on? A bit confused by that.

If you want to send someone a PM, just click on their username, and select the "Send PM" box. It is just that easy.

Frank might be referring to notifier E-mails attached to this thread...we've done a not-unusual side trip here and responses do now seem to be mostly Facebook related.

If that's the case, Frank:

Has your original question been answered to your satisfaction? If so, you can "unsubscribe" to the thread at your user CP page. It's accessed via the far left button on the toolbar at the top of every page.

Thanks, Francesca.

Frank, for more info check out Forums 101, Posting, Accounts, Basics. In particular, post #9 has information on Subscriptions (and unsubscribing).

That same thread has info on Private Messaging, and other aspects of using the site... One caveat: the instructions are based on browser-from-a-computer. The mobile versions of the site differ a bit, in both looks and functionality.

I hope this is useful to you! We're glad you're here!

If you're talking about FB, there is a 'Notifications' tab in the upper right corner just below the photo banner on whatever page you are on. You can click it 'off'. I don't get any email FB notifications either. I'm locked down pretty well.

I've never had an issue getting unwanted email notifications from this FGRV site, but I am usually signed on from a laptop. And when I use an IPad to check things out, I 'browse' to this page rather than use the FGRV app because its a work ipad, can't load personal stuff on it. So I'm not sure if the FGRV app has a default setting for emails.

This is under Edit Options in the UserCP. Make certain it's set to "Do Not Subscribe." Or everytime someone posts in thread where you've replied, you'll be notified. I suppose it depends on how often you post whether or not that could be a problem

Me too.

When I receive email messages from this site advising someone has responded to a post or thread I don't see any Facebook connection to it at all.

Frank as mentioned earlier the suggestions I made to you originally as to how to locate information on this site were not related to Facebook in any way.

The link below my name is what we call a signature here. That will if clicked on take you to a Facebook page of a Fiberglass Trailer Group here in BC. But even then if you went to that page you would not be receiving any notifications unless you yourself set up a Facebook account and clicked on the link to join that page. If you are receiving Facebook notifications then somewhere along the line you must have set up a Facebook account and the only way to stop the notifications from Facebook would be to cancel your Facebook account or change your notification settings within Facebook itself.

While Facebook has becoming less popular with the youth as a social media it has become pretty main stream for most companies, corporations and clubs etc as a means of communicating with their customers and or members.

As a Fiberglass Trailer meet organizer Facebook is a tool for communicating with the over 380 people on our email list who are signed up to receive information about the groups meets etc. Easier & less time consuming for a trailer meet organizer to make one post to Facebook with information for the group on it than it is to send out 380 plus emails and have half of them bounce back as people regular change email addresses or have some internet mail systems deem the email as spam due to the large number of people the information is being sent out to. That results in members of the group complaining that they were never received the information about the meet. The Facebook page also provides a means for those who attend the meet to share their photos of events etc.

So I am sorry if you are confused by the fact my posted include what is known in the world of internet forums a signature that takes you to a Facebook page but as mentioned it would not be the cause of you receiving unwanted Facebook messages.

Carol

Another option (and what I do), is that I do subscribe to all threads I have participated in (or one I want to follow), but choose the option of 'No Email Notification'. That way I get no emails when someone posts to a subscribed thread, but I can find all subscriptions quickly in my User CP.
