    not really... we are elsewhere tho. I can invite you there, just say you want to be invited to the FB chat.

    I don't think it's still around. I haven't been on there for years. :(

    The current solution (FB chat) is all well and good, but it's also very different from the old TFP Chatroom, which, admittedly, I do miss.

    Unfortunately I do not have a facebook profile. This is and has been the only forum where I'm active. I've put a lot of trust in the people here, possibly too much. But I have no interest in the massive overexposure and data mining that occurs on Facebook. I trust them not one bit with my info or pictures.

    This is among the most compelling reasons, IMO, to keep any TFP-related chat functionalities independent of platforms like Facebook, which a not-small number of members have opted not to use. There's also a sense of exclusivity to the current FB chat—it's essentially invite-only—which I find off-putting.

    I realize this is a bit of a quiet period right now on TFP, so there's probably less motivation for the admins to put effort into finding or setting up some other (non-FB) chat platform on account of lower anticipated participation.

    Maybe a consideration for the future?

    fflowley Don't just do something, stand there!

    I don't think it's unfortunate. I'm a never-Facebooker and proud of it!

    Was never a fan of the FaceBook chat- although I was on it, I never participated even once. Getting a notification and then trying to get my bearings on a seemingly mile-long conversation was taxing my patience, and eventually I muted the thing.

    It became academic after I deleted my FaceBook account back in 2018 anyway.
