    Default Social Networking Website....???

    Is the Vectra-C website a Social Networking website?

    Basically, I am one of those who cannot stand the facebook type sites that are around and I also make the misses stay away from it too! Yet, I have been sort of acused of being involved in a similar type thing on here?

    Therefore, I thought we would put it to the public vote?

    Do we see the Vectra-C website as a Social Networking Wesbite?

    My personal view, NO , because here we speak to people about car problems and we share thoughts with one another on what to do next, what we have done and whats going on-recommendations, do's and dont's? etc etc etc, AS WELL as non-car topics......we make new friends here and build up what I beleive to be our own Knowledge Base?

    Whereas, the Socal Networking Websites like FB, etc, are used by people so they can harrass other people or basically go on the virtual pull as they have no life? (My sincere apologies to those on here that use it, this is aimed at saddo geeks who go home and stay on FB all night, and the same routine everyday)!

    TBH, I cant stand facebook () or the others as I have friends and colleagies who use them and they talk about nothing other than what they did on it last night or who they are now speaking to?
    Sometimes completely random and nothing in common.

    At least HERE we have some common ground?

    So, whats your thoughts?

    Is this another way of Facebook'ing or are we still sane?

    I registered because I'd bought a Vec C and I was interested to see what could be done with it. I've been here for a couple of years now and TBH, yes, I do regard it as social.

    Once you've been to a couple of meets and actually put faces to screen names, it becomes a lot more personal. I don't come on here to chat, but it's nice to be part of a group of people with shared interests.

    Mileage : 000

    This is a car website Primarily set up for Vectra C and Signums ( though you don,t really have to have either to be a member) Whilst a lot of members join to learn more about their motor and to ask questions about them also to try and find an answer to a problem they may have with theirs. No doubt as the members become more familier with each other (due to actually meeting them at meets or to mend their cars) inevitably the site will contain some " off topic" conversations. But all in all it is a Car forum.

    I believe its a infomation sharing forum. But will build a comunity also. You arrange meets and tell of having babies and things you've done.

    I would say its a online comunity but not a social networking site.

    Having never used FB or anything on that type i can't coment on if the expirience is the same. But i do believe them sites to be very useful and enjoyable for the people that use them.
