    Default Where have all the rosaceans gone?

    The answer to that question is to social media platforms. RF is an example of this which is forum platform that was popular fifteen to twenty years ago, is still used by some major websites, but has lost its appeal over the social media platforms. Look at the 'what's going on' stats today at RF:
    RFactivity12_8_20.jpg
    38.5K Members and only 126 Active Members
    While RF is way more active than the RRDi members who are basically non existent and rarely, if ever, post, the above stats show the popularity of forum platform websites has diminished while the social media platforms continue to grow. So where have all the rosaceans gone? I have investigated this subject and have done a deep dive into finding out and have the data to show you, if you are interested, read this post.

    It has alot to do with time these days. Those social sites you reference are "hit and giggle" environments in my book. I don't use any of them other than Facebook with about 15 contacts. I would never search Rosacea on it, or any other for the mere fact you explained. I am a sceptic at the best of times, and those platforms are all $$ related.

    I don't post much, never have but I do entertain certain "possible solutions" from the passionate people on this forum. Most recently Soolantra, haven't followed any rules as such, applied the product for a week or so at night and my results have been better than anything I have ever tried. I haven't applied it now for weeks and still haven't had a flush to the level prior. The redness is only just starting to show it's ugly head and in time I will go again with the beautifullness that is this cream.

    Just on your deep dive Brady, I would guess that the majority of these numbers are the same people who have all these platforms, yes it is evident based on your numbers that they have moved away from us, but I would imagine many of them are still lurking around.

    Anyway, gotta say, you deserve a massive KUDOS for your efforts here on this forum.....THANK YOU

    Thanks Pantherman for your kudos. I just finished a video on The Erythromelalgia Association 501 c 3 Non Profit Organization, which is only a little over seven minutes, worth watching. I hope to keep the RRDi going but our funds are so low we may dissolve next year if rosaceans don't donate. I can't do this alone. The handwriting is on the wall....
