I hate to be a wet blanket and Facebook has a place but it is a gold mine for those wishing to do ill to others.

I started an Investigative company after retiring from law enforcement focusing on comp, disability, and medicaid fraud.

One of our best tools for initial background information is Facebook. People tell on themselves without realizing it.

 

My warning is you open up your world to the bad guys, where you live, children, schools they go to, where you work pictures of family, house, automobiles. You also give access to all your friends posted on your pages. You post when you go on vacation and how long you will be gone. I could go on with a long laundry list.

 

Facebook has a place but be well aware of what to post and what not to post.👿 the devil he be out there.

Yep, FB is an amazing window into people’s lives if they’re not careful and it’s not in the interest of FB to lock down things. 

 

That being said there are some good groups with good tutorials and amazing, repeat, amazing modellers out there.

Yes, from all over the globe...particularly from Asia and Eastern Europe.

I totally agree with that!  It must be a real gold mine for identity thieves!

Not to mention that FB is a huge time-waster. Half the posts these days are advertisements, another third a "click bait" asking you to "share if you agree." Then there are the "friends" who feel the need to post pictures of what they cooked for dinner last night, as if anybody gives a hoot. Worst of all, on the subject-matter related pages, it seems to attract people who know little about a subject, but are nonetheless compelled to say something, anything, about everything that's posted. The percentage of actually valuable information on FB is really rather small. Unfortunately, so many people seem to live on it, that FB can sometimes be the only way to get in touch with others. (It's also good for looking up old girlfriends and feeling great about "dodging a bullet..." or not.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
