Big drop in activity and members on PlanetSRK?

    Not to be negative and you all probably have noticed as well, but there's much less activity and members on here as compared to earlier years and its gradually dropping. I think the major reason is the prominence of sites like Twitter and Facebook where there's a lot of fans and perhaps some members have moved on/are too busy etc.

    So not sure there's much we can do about it unfortunately but I think such forums are a much better platform to discuss SRK/SRK films/films in general than facebook or twitter.

    it's true and u're right, it because it's easier for people to navigate through twitter, facebook and tumblr to stay in touch with Shahrukh :(

    There'll probably/hopefully be a spike in activity when over the next 6-7 months with his upcoming 3 films.

    Yes, I hope you're right Dea. At least a few core people keep posting to keep things going until something big happens. I guess I'm a little disappointed when a lot of people are on-line but very few make comments. I miss the (friendly) discussion.

    I know that I don't post that much anymore...and not sure why, I come here and read post..but.
    I think it has a lot to do with his movies not being out for awhile....don't know. I still love to come here but just don't read everything like I used to...hope it picks up after the movies come out.

    I notice a tendency to decrease in activity in all forums. I truly believe that social media platforms have become a major meeting place for the fans, but I think that we should in every way possible to support the forum!

    Just today I was on another forum and someone started a thread:
    "Awful quiet, what's everyone working on (OT or not)?"
    The holiday season has started in many places and that's keeping some people busy. Also the change from warm weather to cold in many parts of the world requires adjustments and added chores for other people.

    @Mara it's not just recently, i think it's before u even became a member hehe so u don't really see a big difference but the planet used to be very busy. i remember that if i somehow missed a day here i had some serious catching up to do lol. so things used to be a lot different before facebook, twitter and all that. forums were the only platform on which u could interract like this. i know some countries picked up facebook a lot quicker, but here we didn't really use it prior to 2011-2012 i would say. twitter is smth even newer. so yeah..
    it does get busier around new releases though so that's nice. but i do terribly miss those days. honestly i even spent a New Year's Eve here one year and i had a blast i'm not even kidding lol. sounds nerdy but i did actually choose to be here instead of attending a party with my "real life" friends lol.

    yes because of facebook..twitter and all that..like uploading a video on FB from YT so ppl watch it right there on fb nd don't go to YT anymore so it reduces the traffic so here the same is going on...but this forum is not just about updates pics etc it's like a family..like home as i feel and believe ....so i think all r just busy with their stuffs i can call it Holiday LOL so hope soon they will come back home and everything will be the same like before..i was..is and will be here always bcz i am too lazy to move my ass from my home i think ))))))))) home sweet home :)
