I still remember the look of incredulity on my director's face when I asked "what is Facebook ?" some 20+ years ago.
This is one of quite a few FaceBook curry groups. There's Curry Club, The Secret Curry Club, The Curry Club (Home Cooking) and others. They are popular. The biggest one has somewhere around 50K members. They are all quite active. There are some that have been here and on the other forum participating. It's a mix of accomplished cooks, beginners and everything in between.The biggest differences, I think, are the volume of traffic (much higher), and the diversity of participants. There's a lot enthusiasm and the desire to cook and share. There's also a lot of uninformed opinion. There are trolls. There are spats. But they tend to get drowned out by the volume. The concept of a flame war doesn't really exist. It's hopelessly disorganized. It doesn't have the carefully managed library of recipes that one would find here. The search function works pretty well though. I suspect Facebook licenses technology from Google. I think of it as a huge party with many, many conversations going on at once. I have met some truly excellent cooks and all around nice people in these groups. It is, like anything, going to give back in proportion to what you put into it. I'm a little old school and do prefer forums for their structure but there are some really good on-topic FB groups out there.
The facebook clubs are a totally different structure, very high post volume, and no real organisation
