You can register for something like "Dead Man's Switch" (There are a few around). Ok in principal I guess, so long as it doesn't misfire.

When I go the internet will breathe a huge sigh of relief. :D

I just got an email from Google Inactive Account Manager , I had forgotten about that option. I have to have been gone for 30 days before the designated people get access.

Seems disorganized. Then again, this is my complaint about most Facebook groups.... No way I can see to sensibly look up people, topics, info.

I hate FB groups. No organization at all, hard to keep track of conversations as they become lost far more easily.

Not sure why people migrated to FB from forums which to me are generally better organized and easier to track conversations and topics.

It's not a group - it's a page.

Groups have a search function for both posts and members which actually works pretty well.

Lived in NYC for many years...then moved to Florida. We met up with him and his wife a few years ago. Frank is a very nice guy...another one I miss.

Yes, the BE FB page seems to be more directing interested folks to the BE Forum, which is fine.

Several large, active forums I have belonged to over the years have become FB groups, but even there I find a lack of organization--posts cannot be gathered easily into categories, search function is limited, and actual information not easily accessed.
