Probably the reason why more and more company choose to close them, and go full Facebook or Twitter, where people can merely post one-liners, and the page owners have more control about what is being said and what is not.
You have far more control in your own dedicated forum than on Facebook... in fact, on Facebook you have no control whatsoever. If you talk about subjects they don't like, you will be censored in a variety of ways... some of which are invisible and completely unaccountable.
Maybe they consider Facebook users a different audience then. IDK.
