Rethinking the point in designing websites

I’m really not sure what the point in websites is anymore.  Not in the modern world of Facebook.

I just discovered the Milo Historical Society has setup a Facebook page!  17 hours ago. And they already have 142 likes, and all kinds of people interacting with it.  I’ve been doing their website since I was in high school, and I’ve never been able to get that many people interested/involved with the website.

Just seeing how well the new page is doing makes me wonder why we even bother with webpages anymore.  Same thing goes for TRC.  Everyone is more into doing social media crap now than actually taking the time to view a website 🙁
