    Interesting, I just posted a thread about HTML5. VB is falling behind so far it's not even funny now. Two years ago they looked like they were going to jump ahead of everyone, but nothing happened.

    I too thought that if Facebook decided to make usable forums, they'd kill VB. I agree with you a lot.

    Forum software is becoming irrelevant. Social media is taking off and supporting new standards (like HTML5) quicker. I'm seeing people flock away from our forums like crazy... I'm starting to think its time to close the forums and re-direct everyone to facebook or some other social media capability (Yammer etc.)

    Seriously.. I can't re-tweet a post in here, or "like" it and actually see what I've liked.... :eye roll:

    If facebook pays any more attention to their discussion capabilities it will be time for the fat lady to sing.

    In addition, the world is going mobile fast. Mobile forum use is mostly a joke. (thank God for tapatalk)

    YouTube is excellent, Twitter and Facebook are the demise of forums and our communities as we once knew ( at least for a good percentage of vb communities). Am I right or paranoid, who knows but hey, take a look and ask people if their sites are growing as fast as they used to. If the answer is no, then look at those communities and take a deeper look at why and where those people are going. I bet those users are frequenting facebook and twitter more. You are loosing traffic to that. And what's ironic, vb is pushing people there too, rotf! And they are selling forum software. Got to be desperate IMHO putting up a link to go there from here.

    However, I'm not so worried for my business circle because my industry isn't embracing twitter and facebook as quickly as others sectors.
    I look at a lot of you whom have forums and think... man, don't be too sure you are feeding your enemy by pushing people to to FB and T on you site...
    I am definitely into technology and use it in a very seriously way but yikes. Most people don't see what's coming unless you are actually part of the cutting edge. I am following the edge and just saying and watching how the leaders here are following the trends and doing less leading. This worries me. Just saying gang....

    Bookmark this one for a year down the road. I Hope I'm very wrong.

    Cheers!

    Wouldn't have a clue on why some of you are whinging about the extra help you are getting from these guys. They have given up their time to give us tutorials via youtube, and are on both twitter and facebook but still it looks like we can't please everyone.
    those of you who are complaining get with the technology it will end up helping you out when you are stuck and you will be able to use their videos to help your friends out who are also running their own boards.

    Interesting to see who chimes in here and how you respond to this. I can understand having a twitter or facebook page and point here, but not the other way around. It doesn't make sense to me. Am I doing this, ya, but I'm not liking it at all.

    I'll tell you I disable the ability for facebook users to login into my site for very good reason and made the announcement that there was a security issue with it related to the custom profiles. Glad we have the patch in 4.0.8.pl 2 Thank you.

    I would remove the whole thing but the 'I like" is mentioned with vbseo to be some function that I'm "hoping" will help more than what's happening here. Do I like pointing to Facebook and Twitter, NOT AT ALL. I think its the demise of many forum communities and if you think I'm wrong, lets look back on this topic in a year. I bet vb4 isn't making the money they hoped one year later eh? And its going to lessen because of Facebook and Twitter for certain.

    Sorry for being so harsh, but no one is listening. Its not a good thing for any of us and seeing vb pointing to it on the top page, is really disturbing. I'm absolutely certain you are in trouble when I see this on the leader board slot. And I'm not the only one that thinks this. I've been doing this forum thing a long time. We are in big trouble.

    Peace out.
    We are listening... you may think some are not however we all have our opinions as well .

    Why is it needed to communicate from twitter to twitter, instead of from vbulletin to twitter. Or from vbulletin to facebook.

    I can't do any of that, my laptop's already on it's side. I solved the riddle of those smiling faces everyone's always talking about! Now they make sense!

    I must say I'm getting used to it. Even if there was a way to remove that message, I am becoming rather fond of my little crossy friend.

    Wait a minute. Cross? <tilts head>

    Sonofa....!
