Having an intense dislike of Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Whatsapp, Instagram, etc. can anyone confirm that if Facebook is associated with this owners' club then our personal details will not be looted? These systems are as invidious as cancer as far as I'm concerned and I will avoid contact at all costs.

Totally agree with you Dulac about these social media groups / platforms whatever. I don't belong to any of them and as for clicking on a link posted on a forum by some new Mystery Member well we Scots have a saying for that - Aye right, d'ye think my heid buttons up the back?

If it is anyway linked to Facebook looks like I'll be deleting my account on the forum Grumps can you please confirm that this forum is not linked to Facebook etc in anyway please. I know other search engines use this site but what about social media sites like above. ? Edited by: Bigjohnsparky

Looks like a guy called Rich Howie is admin for that FB group. Only 13 members and was created on November 22nd, 2017. Rich Howie added the remaining 12 members himself by the looks of it. Its a closed group, so content isnt public unless you join. He's a member here and is already contributing so seems like a top man and not a spammer. Hes the guy that made the other post herehttp://www.antaraownersclub.com/forum/facebook-link-to-antra-group_topic3590.html so Im assuming it wasnt started as an official connection to these forums?

Wouldnt worry to be honest...FB, you either love it or hate it...join it or leave it....Im gonna create a FB Antara specialist group that talk about current sexy topics like.... replacement undertrays (Im gonna hide....)

You're probably right Edji but Rich might have
got a better response here if he'd intorduced himself in the Newbies section
and stated the year and model of his Antara and then providing a bit more detail on
his requests for help. btw I see he's never made any response to ChrisG either.

Any road up, don't matter a hill of beans at the end of the
day.

I just don't trust social media: that's why these kids are multi-millionaires. Once the genie is out of the bottle there's no going back..........
