Facebook public group

Post by Warmtoffee » Fri Jul 20, 2018 11:07 am

I admit I won’t join Facebook but the public group, which still tracks people, I find very useful for what is happening.
It used to show threads, then went out off altogether, then came back.
Now it just shows non members the first post of a thread.
If this is adjustable then I prefer all the news as last week.

Incidentally the Facebook link at the bottom of SpecNext.com shows the following error. (It used to work fine). Right On Commanders!

Unable to display Facebook posts.
Error: Error validating application. Application has been deleted.
Type: OAuthException
Code: 190
Please refer to our Error Message Reference.

Looking at facebook stuff if you don't have an account is very hit and miss. I haven't tried lately, but at least until a few months ago I had a decent chance of facebook wanting a login before showing anything at all. This isn't specific to the the spectrum next group at all.

Thanks very much for the clarification. The project is going well. I’ll just wait for a nice surprise at the door.

I can understand people not wanting to use facebook, but sometimes the best solution is really to create an account with a single-use email address, no personal information, and use it only to view groups in a browser with an adblocker and Do Not Track installed. In igcognito mode, if you really want to.

For a no account Facebook user thec64 public group shows full threads.
But the SpecNext public group suddenly doesn’t.
It seems to be under control of the group owner.
Anyway if there is anything mega then copy here. :-)

That's a shame. It did get raised, and the admins say they are not aware of anything under their control. It could be that groups created at different times are different under the hood. I've seen that before.

Mitja is pretty good about posting the headline stuff, but you are missing a lot of chaotic, in-the-moment but still useful stuff.

I do get discouraged by this forum tbh. I'm about done with it. The last demo I posted on facebook has 65 likes and 64 comments, several of which were interesting and constructive conversations.

On here, zilch. Just disappeared into a black hole. And the one before that too, nothing. The one before that (representing three months of my spare time), two comments.

You create the environment you deserve, in some respects. If you want people to interact with you then you have to be present to some extent.

I setup a 'no information' with a 'single use' email address Facebook account and got blocked within 5 minutes. Apparently accounts with zero information look 'dodgy' and get blocked. So it's on with a life without social media for me!

It's like tumbleweed here most of the time. There was a relative peak when the bare boards went out, and expect the same will happen again once the final products do arrive. Never been on such an inactive forum unfortunately.
