    People love it or hate it, but for me SwiftKey offers a much faster keypad entry on a touch screen

    OOh, you should be careful what you ask for. Soon you'll have strange people from far far away adding content when they really have no idea what you're talking about.

    I have no idea why there's only a core group on any forum. The wonderful thing about this forum and the equivalent one far far away is that people are generally good. I expect that for forums involving hobbies but people get really into the purpose of scouts and I can see it getting to be like politics and religion - not a safe subject at a party - but not here, so my hat's off to all of you.

    I just find Facebook hopelessly unstructured. You saw a programme idea a week ago there, and now you want to use it - what hope have you of finding it, especially if you can't remember the right keywords for a search? In some groups, you can't find anything a day later. And as for focusing on a particular topic, or looking for the latest contributions by an interesting poster, or really anything that's about anything actually useful...

    I post on a couple of hobby forums. All such things suffer from the plague of the same question being asked again and again. But sometimes we're spared it because someone revives a five-year-old thread, full of useful and relevant information. Try that on Facebook.

    Aye, the kids are all podcasting their etsy snapchats.

    10 pages on the census that happens every year (though most of it probably isn't really about the census)...still life in the dog yet!

    It is dreadfully organised, but there is a way to work around it, for your first issue: I have a group with only me in it, and share anything I want to keep to that group.

    There's actually a really useful feature on Facebook for saving interesting things called... "save post".

    In the top right hand corner of each post on Facebook there are 3 dots (might be an arrow depending on which version of the app you have). Press that and choose "save post".

    To access your saved posts search for "saved" or use the main menu to navigate to saved posts.

    You can even categorise them to your hearts content.
