BL .. Unfortunately have been unabe to to update  for some considerable time due to having had a couple of accidents, needing operations leaving me with a mobility problem. To add to that this winter has been oh so wet & windy making it unpleasant/ difficult to go for walks etc. it has also hindered the goings on in & around Kalkan. Will try to do better.

Pah! and Double Pah!..no Facebook for me (mrs L is a facbooker) I have no interest in Facebook and wont be joining any time soon. I don't wish to be prodded or poked etc and if I didn't like you twenty years ago I don't want to be your buddy now! >:D long live forums like this for a little bit of chat like Ray says with like minded people.We need people like you DRBD as a resident you can be our eyes on Kalkan as you have done in the past now we don't have KTLN to update us on the goings on (new shop/bars/building  prices etc)

Trouble is, the privacy settings may block other FB users, but not Facebook themselves, their advertisers and associated data collection agencies, whether commercial or governmental.  (Think of Cambridge Analytical as the thin end of the wedge)

Remember also, that their are strong indications that this data is abused, misused and god knows what.  Even the facial recognition features, where once you've been tagged, they are applied on ALL pictures posted - you can't escape, your movements can be traced.  It is believed that this identification is also harvested by various international Governmental organisations for their own purposes, not always innocently.

You can argue, rightly, that if you're innocent then you have nothing to fear.  Unfortunately, innocence has little to do with people who wish to do you harm or make money from you.

It's a hostile world out their, sometimes.  B(m)illionaires may care even less about you than they do their bank accounts.

Not just my opinions - just do the research!

Be safe online.

Am I right in thinking they haven't named it yet? I'm sure I saw  FB post (sorry  :-*) asking for people to help name it.

I am completely with you DRBD. Many sites use Facebook and try to direct you to use it. I don’t use Facebook or twitter as I have no interest in being part of this form of information swopping or unsolicited comments from the rest of the world. When I join a site like EK that has people that have a similar interest then i find it helpful and informative. My business has many young ladies that can’t live without these sites but many of them have had to intervene on who is privy to their comments or stop using them completely. They subsequently open up WhatsApp group sites to keep better control. I won’t ever be joining FB or T and if that becomes the only way to use a site then it’s goodby to that site.

I think the forum will come in to it’s own when people start with their holiday reports but I’m afraid for many, FB is just more convenient: simpler to use on mobile devices and reaches a far wider audience for quicker reaction.
Not saying it’s better or worse but things have evolved.

I understand your dislike of FB but it is possible tocreate a profile with privacy set so you can’t be found. Then it’s up to you who or what you choose to follow.

You are not alone!!!   This household hates FB as well.   

Let's hope people start to use this site as much as before.

  • Sezkalkan: Holly - you may be better off starting off a post under 'general discussion' on the right hand side, but generally the weather is great in October - mid 20's with plenty of sunshine. Maybe the odd bit of rain, but doesn't normally last too long.  A little cooler in the evenings, so pack a pashmina.  It seems very safe. All of us Kalkan nutters hvae been coming all year and more than once too!  Go for it
