Re: Is facebook taking place of forums now?
I'm not aware of any "deep underground" forums, but I usually try to swing through here, Kustom Kulture Lounge, and Airbrush-Talk at least occasionally.
Facebook has it's good points and bad. The one thing I don't like is that in order to talk to other artists, I have to "friend" them, giving access to personal information I might not feel like sharing with a complete stranger.
At least on the forums, there's still a bit of anonymity and privacy.
That said, all of the forums seem to have slowed a bit lately, but it seems to be kind of a seaonal cycle once the weather starts warming up and spring projects start popping up.
