How slow JM is moving lately? Like, not technology-wise, but in general. My DDC can go 4 hours without a post. My old DDC would rarely go an hour, even in the middle of the night. Less people in general, and even though I may get in trouble saying this....mods and admins are rarely around so people get frustrated issues aren't dealt with timely and don't bother coming back. It makes me sad I love these forums.

Yeah, my PR is pretty dead too - no posts since the 17th. A lot of people stopped posting after their baby was born. There are about 4-5 of us that post regularly and a few more that stop by every few weeks or so. I think some of them might have moved to a FB club instead.

I agree! I think people switching to fb has made a big difference! Thats part of the reason i like this board so much! There is usually something to post on!

I like the anonymity of it. Lots of things I ask (especially in a DDC or PR) I would feel so weird asking people IRL!

Yeah, I prefer keeping FB for people I know IRL, otherwise you just end up with so much crap in your newsfeed. I already have an old HS friend that posts 3-4 FB updates per day on what her kid is doing, not to mention the dozens of daily articles on attachment parenting she shares, which I'm just not interested in. It's annoying.

^ you know you can set your fb not to display all her updates like that right? if it bugs you that much, ive had to "hide" people for various reasons from my newsfeed before, its pretty easy once you know how to do it

I hide people in my newsfeed. But I also have most of my PR on my facebook, but I don't mind it.

But I still like to come here and not share everything about Cam on my page. Or filter here what I share. I miss how busy different groups used to be.

I hope your DDC stays active Jessica! Ours did until a facebook group was created, right around our LO's first birthdays.
