Redirecting members to Facebook

I see where a few people keep advising questions asked in here to go to Facebook for the answer they seek. It seems like the advice is given to newer members most times that would be nice to have active on the forum. Usually to help sell products it seems. I would like to see this forum stay active and succeed for much longer. It just seems like we lose members to Facebook because people are trying to help or sell something for others that are not active or barely active members. Answers seem to advice that non-sponsors on here can help them out. My feelings are people are generally aware Facebook exists and shouldn't need direction to leave C5 and seek what they are looking for there. Especially if that's the main reason they maintain the account or keep it open here is to redirect members to Facebook.
Just curious if anyone has thoughts on this?

Yes, that should not be happening. If you see someone regularly redirecting users to Facebook or any other site(s), please report the posts. Thank you!

Yeah, because I can have this forum running in the background at work, without any issues to assist or help with questions. I cannot access Facebook from work, it is blocked at the firewall.

Same for me! I hate when people redirect to Facebook for rebates or special contest... Oh well...
