Maori.org.nz should have a facebook page group
Tane, I loathe Facebook with a passion because to me it seems to be mostly random chatter, instead of the 20 or so topics, each with well-organized threads that were on Maori.org's Papa-panui. Instead of a lot of small groups, each talking on a particular topic, Facebook is like being in a huge crowd, where the subject constantly changes.
I could put a question on Papa-panui, wait a month, two months, and eventually someone would come up with a brilliant response. On Facebook, the same question is lost in the irrelevant chatter. And I could search Maori.org for details of a song, or details about a rare dialect Maori word, and find it. Information on Facebook seems to be scattered like confetti.
Is there any way Facebook can be navigated so that we can back-track the flow of a particular thread that was discussed?
