We get some lovely photos on here - but there could be more.
Would people like a Facebook page where they could just post nice photos of where they are etc?
10 yesses and I'll go for it
Best wishes,

That would be nice, but I don't have Facebook. But I'll add my yes to the numbers. That's 11 counting Bertha's.

I'm not sure. Would you only want to post pictures? Or move the Café there?
What will you do if people post language questions on Facebook? Will it become a second "forum" in parallel?
If it's not used by a native speaker it's not idiomatic. And idiom trumps grammar every time. Jack Wilkerson†

In the FB profile biography or about section, it could include a link to this forum for asking questions.  I participate a little on a FB page called The Apostrophe Police, where they post photos of various misuses of apostrophes and sometimes other mangled grammar issues.  It's not intended to be a Q & A page, but it does produce some humorous commentary.  One much join as it's a group, but there are also other options for the type of group page one sets up.  Some groups are public, some closed, some require approval to join and some not.  Just be aware that anything posted can become public unintentionally, so even photographers and artists have issues with their work if they post it.
