Anyone Else Think There Could Be A Connection?

Navigating This Site.

Does anyone else get a little confused when getting around this site? I have problems with it. Maybe because I have to use my phone. It's it easier on a PC?

I ask this question because I can't help but notice people do not send to stay active. My self included. I feel more people would join and stay active if it had the simplicity of a Facebook group. It's so much easier to share things and be involved.
