What’s Goin’ Here?
I totally agree with Deborah about "habit", and to be sure, the software that runs this site is antiquated. The last time I put any serious effort into the code was before Facebook was invented. Yes, a lifetime ago in terms of social media.

That said, in the next few months we'll be rewriting the interface to be more mobile-friendly, and doing a marketing push to get people back. If it becomes more used in the mean time, that will make the site more enticing for newcomers.

Hi. I'm your host, Mik. Please let me know what you think.

Good question, Harvey. I think it has to do with habit.
Using a resource like this requires that folks learn a new habit.
Most of us are used to certain social media habits for news and for posting, and
we are very ingrained in the newspaper habit for news and info and posting.
This is something in between and new to most folks.
So, a bit of awareness raising might help it....but awareness raising would be
in the places that people are already looking and using for posting and for news...
so, facebook, twitter, etc and press releases to the regular print media on a periodic
basis. Just my thoughts on your question.

Yes, let's see if we can get it going. Shen, I didn't know about the Facebook page. Will you please invite me to join? That's how it works, right? Sara

What’s Goin’ Here?
Here's a guess - there has to be a perception that it's useful.
I posted things once or twice, no response, and forgot all about trying to use it.

Maybe getting the word out to existing Shelburne Falls area networks - from the business association & womens club to churches to yoga classes & meditation groups... Senior Center. Town boards. Users of free food pantry and clothes closet. Users of Cowell gym.

Wonder if there are any Sh F area groups are already doing some or all of their stuff online, via FB groups or google groups etc? (for example, I see the FB group called Shelburne & Buckland Then & Now & it has over 1000 users.)

Just some thoughts. I'm happy to share anything via email or FB.

Great question Harvey! Maybe we can revitalize it now - If the 19 people getting this email all spread the word to our friends and neighbors in S.F., maybe it could become useful to people? Let's try.

Anyone have any ideas as to why this site is not being used by the community?

Your opinions are valued by more than just me!

Thanks for responding.
