Ten Killer Detecting Facebook Groups

Ten Killer Detecting Facebook Groups

Facebook is today’s scene for metal detecting discussion and sharing of finds photos.  Easy to use on mobile devices, and you can receive push updates through your phone.  Here are some of my favorite Facebook groups.  Apologies if I missed some as I could not list them all.   If you have a favorite, please feel free to add it to the comments section at the bottom of the article.

1) Metal Detecting for Beginners

This is a great group devoted to people just getting started.   Everyone is very patience and there is no such thing as a dumb question.

2) Dirt Scanner’s Metal Detecting

This one is run by renowned beach hunter and all around great guy, Roger Barbrick.  A very cool group of people.   Definitely worth joining.

3) Tri-Star Metal Detecting

To avoid getting lost in the crowd and a ton of posts, a smaller local group may be for you.   The other cool thing about a local group is that you can meet the members face to face and actually detect with them.  To find a local group, just ask other detectorists friends in your area.  They will help you find the perfect group.  If it doesn’t exist, start one!

Tri-Star, comprised mostly of members in Tennessee and Alabama, is my group of choice.  Jonathan, the group owner, is very cool, and the group has a cast of characters that are serious detectorists, and fun to interact with.

4) WTF is This?
