    I guess it needs to be separated for different types of concerns and diabetes. However if you have posted anything today, it'll be under recent threads and we would have all seen it and read it. It takes a while for a thread to sink under 800 posts from 2009. :)

    Was Facebook easy the first time you tried it? Maybe it is just because this forum is different from Facebook that you are confused. This is a forum about the various aspect of diabetes so it is divided into sub-fora to help someone, for example, who is only interested Type1 find the right threads.
    Unlike Facebook this forum is primarily about diabetes, not about the people who post. I would recommend going to the menu and selecting "new posts" which cuts across all the sub-fora to read posts. If you reply to them you will automatically be in the right place.

    Everything is organised by thread topic. They are quite strict about that. If you are used to topics being interrelated then you have to adjust your thinking a bit. :D

    Think of it as a library. All the books go in relevant sections to make it easier to find what you want and to put them into the right places initially

    Or use “recent posts” or “new posts” to see just those from all sections.

    You can "watch" multiple threads.
    When you click on the "Watch Thread" link at the top of the page, this means you will receive an alert (or email) when someone adds something new to that thread.
    But you can jump from one thread to another and back again without watching any thread if you have a passing interest.
