with social media (like facebook and twitter are) you can get an up to the second response to a post and (like messageboards) you don't have to keep on checking back for any new replies..........
 
I offered to create a facebook group for a similar thing to this website a few years ago, but nigel was against the idea..... don't know why

Perhaps Nigel shares the view that Fycebook is a data-harvesting mechanism designed to suck personal details from the unwary and the not-very-IT-literate.  Fine, if you're not too fussed about that and have little more pressing to do than react to an instant response.  Personally, I'm too busy getting on with real life and am happy to drop into this and other fora when I have time.  Just about the first thing that I did when I acquired my current mobile phone was to de-install the Twi'er and Fycebook apps which were cluttering up the homescreen and exceedingly unlikely to be used by me!
I realise that defines me as a social dinosaur but I rather regret the slow demise of message boards like this and their predecessor Usenet groups.

the view counts keep rising but hardy anyone posts, maybe people from the wider ethnic communities are hesitant to speak out, just incase they are identified and end up in trouble just for voicing their opinion.

In trouble?  This isn't North Korea.  Anyone's entitled to a view so long as they aren't abusive to others or inciting crime and hatred in the expression of it.
