Unfortunately there are 3 organizations that I'm a member of that are on Facebook. They also have regular websites, but these are not updated very often. To know what is going on, one has to visit their Facebook page, and it's also the only way to interact with other group members (the regular web sites don't have any kind of message board).

I think the interface is crappy. Like I say, I use it but don't like it. And on top of that, I'm well aware of the scandals of leaking private information, being a troll farm's best option for spreading misinformation, and so on.

There are also restaurants whose only web presence is Facebook.
