I haven't tried Drivetribe yet. What advantage does it have over a Facebook group or a forum like this?

Serious question, I'm not being a curmudgeon here.

DRIVETRIBE is a social media network directed at motoring enthusiasts. It's the digital home for all the motoring tribes under the sun founded by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.

You can join the official and original Ford Model T Enthusiasts Tribe by following this link...

I agree with Tim Eckensviller as he said above, "What advantage does this have over a Facebook group or a Forum like this?"

I wonder how many social venues there are on the web - probably so many that it would be impossible for one person to keep up with them all! :-O

"What advantage does this have over a Facebook group or a Forum like this?"

To properly answer Tim's question, the only real advantage I guess you could say is that it's directed solely at motoring enthusiasts, and not full of the usual fluff that the likes of Facebook and Twitter are - although still very useful, they're too generic in many cases.

I personally figured it was another way to spread the word about Model T's and help to keep the passion alive :-) The more publicity and exposure the hobby gets, the more chance it has of prevailing :-)

I am going to play contrarian here and suggest that by scattering the
Model T "word" across more venues only dilutes the message/resource
and diminishes it as a "value".

Everyone seems to think they have a "better idea" for how to do things,
and some time they are better ideas. But more often than not, they are
just more of the same, with a slightly different twist, but the unseen fall-
out is scattering of a concentrated resource, whose value IS the concentration
as a resource.

Just a thought ....

Good point of view Burger, but of course, dilution is not my aim, quite the opposite. The Model T hobby is by far dominated by the older generation, and in order to keep it alive, platforms like Facebook and Drivetribe are excellent ways to let them know about it. Social Media is the future, so why not embrace it? There's no need to let our beloved Model T disappear into the pages of history.

I doubt there's any concern of the Model T nor this website disappearing into history due to not being on FaceF(polite edit). Jeremy Clarkson is hardly a draw factor for anything. Brian May? .... rinse, repeat ... might as well dig around a bit and find Clarkson's doppelganger Chris Evans.

Now, put them on Survivor Island and you might make a crocodile happy!

Burger........... contrarian????? Get out of here.... :-)

I think there's nothing wrong with "spreading the word" regarding Model T and other early automobiles. I do get Keith's point, and will carry it a bit further. We don't wish to lose what we have here, many of the best minds and most experience about the Model T in the world.

My suspicion is a social media site won't diminish this forum. It might even enhance it, as auto enthusiasts may be exposed to the T on other sites, eventually gravitating here for specific information....

Thanks Mitch, this might be what it takes to get me to try Drivetribe.

Mitch,

"Social Media is the future, so why not embrace it?"


I drive a Model T. I live in the past.:-)

Best of luck on your Drivetribe thing.

My Momma says that social media is
THE DEVIL!!!!!!!!!

A forum like this is about as far as I am willing to go. I know too many facebookers that can think of or do nothing else but facebook. Not for me.

Tom,

Your momma is right.
