I keep seeing post on Facebook that CRO is dead. Am I just wasting my time running the site if no one is using it?


Let me know I keep posting and posting news releases that are sent to me from other series and tracks. I though the site is still active maybe not as much as it once was as people like posting on FB which I find horrible as I started the site as I saw racing message boards that were so un organized and messy and that is the same way facebook is. You can subscribe to groups on facebook and read the posts and try to find them days later and try to follow them. You can't mark topics and you really have no features on Facebook sort of a step backwards if you ask me but if I'm just running as site no one is using or enjoying let me know and I can just use this site as a archive and people can just read what was posted from 2009 till 2015.

Thanks
Evan

I will have to wait and see. It might not be as active as it used to but I know people to do visit here to read the post instead of going to different sites to see the posts.

I for one really hate facebook and feel it's a step backwards and isn't the same as a message board. Imaging trying to go to all the groups to see press releases on facebook? Facebook is a mess and hard to follow and this site was created 16 years ago because of the message boards that were a mess and had a bad layout. I guess it's true everything comes back in style.

Try to find a race report on facebook back from 2006 till present? You might be able but not sure how.

We were around before facebook was even around.

I could see if facebook was well structured as a forum is and if you like seeing all the crap that is mixed with the racing then I guess facebook is the right place for them. I can't wait for the day facebook starts charging to run groups on there as people are loading all their messages and photos and if you don't pay it's going to be gone. Facebook is about making money and groups are another way they can make money.

I bet a lot don't read about facebook.

Got to love this post online

Jan 24, 2014 - Facebook will lose 80 per cent of users within three years before eventually dying out “like the bubonic plague”, according to US scientists.

When they die. So does all your material you posted and images. Remember MySpace the biggest Social Media place they died off.


Just like racing CRO may die off. I read an article a while back and it says racers and fans are killing the sport. I for one know many can't say they ran a racing hobby site for 16 years.

Nascar wanted to sue me and of others tried to tell me what we can post and we kept posts up and it made a lot of people mad and I managed to keep the site running. We don't have to answer to series or tracks. If you can say how you feel about racing here.

Think I have said enough and Thanks Racefan and others that continue to support the site. Without you there is no CRO.
