    Honestly, improvements are almost always nice and appreciated but I can see the points made about there being more useful and priority improvements.
    The Commerce store front end is boring and bland in particular if you only use Subscriptions, all you can do with it is add a widget to your available subscriptions, terms and conditions or change the currency in this one place.
    So yes, this one really feels more like it could have been suggested as a third party Marketplace mod.

    That's why I tagged him, and what makes you think that it's completely unrelated? It doesn't seem that way to me, and it's a passing comment. 😕 
    Or am I missing something?

    Example better layout for commerce shop. 
    bigger item image, with left and right arrows to switch through the item images when open in Lightbox.
    commerce needs an overall to be more modern looking store.

    WhatsApp should be a built in sharing option.

    This looks great! I really like automatic promotions to other user groups based on things such as content and now referrals but if you run subscriptions to pay your way to get to that usergroup, I really wish they worked together something like...

    I like this thinking. 
    The only way we can do this though is to constantly remind people that the convenience of FB comes at a high cost.

    Yeah...not that I'm leaping to defend the ghetto that is social media, but that judge is completely out of it where social media is concerned.  But wouldn't it be nice if that precedent strangled social media content to the extent that people returned to independent communities which can (theoretically) offer higher quality content?

    Some thoughts in no particular order: 
    1. Yes, Facebook will be here for a very long time.  They've done an exceptionally good job of making the service as sticky as possible for users, with games, marketplace selling, and soon their Libra coin.  
    2. Facebook and Discord is not free.  There's a false sense of free with those services, where it's literally costing you your user data and privacy.  
    3. Whether or not Facebook and Discord are easier to start a new community on, they're exceptionally bad for large communities with a lot of activity.  There's no long form communication or organization on those platforms, which makes to hard to save and retain the best content.  
    The one overwhelming takeaway from this article is that anytime you rely on another platform, you're at it's mercy.  The only way to protect yourself is to run an independent community.  You lose a lot of the platform's benefits, but you control your own destiny.

    FZ reacted to mudcrutch in 6 reasons why you shouldn't just settle for a Facebook group community   
    Facebook has become this scary entity that has really swallowed up communities. I see new groups pop up on Facebook that eclipse forum communities in both membership and activity.
    BUT... most activity on Facebook is a flash-in-the-pan. Discussions I see are quick thoughts or image posts with little content that get some quick likes then fade. Any meaningful communication can get buried quickly. With forum communities old convos can rise back to the top and active threads can keep going.
    All these people putting time into building communities on Facebook are doing it for someone else! You don't own your data, can't predict changes in the system, or even build what you want. It is something that has grown out of convenience.
