With the introduction of the new website, we have the opportunity to introduce online discussion threads in our own social network. While the letters page in the magazine has served us well, we can now share information, comments and views in a debate format in real time. Social media such as Facebook and Twitter are becoming more commonplace, so is this the time right to introduce this within Railway Ramblers on the website? By trying the concept on the website we can at least restrict the topics to relevant RR matters and overcome the issues we’re finding on the RR Facebook page where users ‘lose’ sight of threads rapidly as new posts push them down. Will it work for us? Are there benefits? Are there risks? Is it unfair on non-website users? Do we need rules? What do you think?
