Will forums eventually be replaced by social media?
I have to say I am seeing more and more of a trend toward social media groups over hard forums like VMPF and APF.
What do you think is driving this trend?
My gut reaction is convienence. For one I have about 20 pictures of posters on my phone that I could have posted anytime on fb... To post them on here takes a 3 or 4 step process. There is also the immediate reaction factor with likes and comments etc. which we have but this is an isolated place and doesn’t flow into our other social interactions. I’m not sure how recordable or searchable social media will be so IMO most of it is fleeting - until fb pops it back up in a memory or something.
is there anything VMPF can do?
This Vintage Movie Poster Forum is powered by some old cinema posters, the flame retardant properties of a Top Gun Daybill, and a
British Quad which has been folded just the right amount of times and shoved under one of the corners to stop the place from wobbling.
