After many years as one of the biggest Roxette fan communities “Run To Roxette” announced the closing of it’s forums today:

Hi there,
Due to the growth of social networks, we’ll close the R2R forum on january 1st, so please save the messages, contacts and pictures that you want. We can keep in contact thought the Facebook page.

Facebook fan page:

The Run to Roxette Team.

The decrease of activity on the forums was clearly visible in the last months, when more and more Roxers concentrated their activity on social networks instead of the classical communities. After so many years it feels a bit sad though.

What do you think, can networks like Facebook replace the whole package of a dedicated fan community?
