Question- why would you be able to access the FB group easier than the JM group? Don't both of them require an Internet connection?

I was wondering the same thing. Doesn't make sense to me.

When my pr for my son stared one, there was not an app for jm. Now that there is, there are both easy to access. .

My last disc didn't start a fb group until our babies were about 3 months old.

Maybe forums are blocked at her work but FB isn't? Filters are quirky sometimes.

I would be willing to do either. I would just worry about other people seeing my activity on the facebook page? I am waiting to announce my pregnancy until after the first trimester, and I kinda want to keep that private...anyone know if others would be able to see that you joined our DDC kind of group?

We didn't start our FB group until we were a playroom but it killed our playroom. I don't mind adding you ladies as friends at some point but I agree with the other ladies that I'm not ready yet. I haven't put anything on Facebook about being pregnant and I prefer to know people better before adding them to Facebook. I'd love to have a group some day though.

^^^ I was going to say this too ... that's why I haven't brought it up yet. =D I figured we'd all wait and get to know each other in JM before we up and "move". lol

And as for FB Privacy, you can still be in a group together without having to friend anyone in it yet. So you'd be able to keep yourself private if you wanted to. =D

Yes. Search for Forum Runner. Once you've added the app you can search for JM within Forum Runner.

Facebook has an app for the phone...so you can access it. JM on safari is slow and freezes and dies. I haven't been able to even look at JM for the past couple days. Its sad. Id like a group of people to talk to during this pregnacy but my office moves in 2-3 weeks and then I won't have any privacy. So guess I won't be able to stay with this group. Its nice that I have two groups on facebook from my other pregnancies I guess...not exactly the same thing but better than nothing. Also I don't like posting very much cofidential stuff on JM...its open to anyone to read out there where at least facebook is secret/private. But whatever. Can't do anything about it. Would have liked to know you ladies better.

Again...there is an app called Forum Runner that you can download. Once you have downloaded that search for the JM group in Forum Runner. It allows you to check all the JM boards quickly and easily from your phone. If you're able to check FB there's no reason you shouldn't be able to check JM unless it's just by choice.

If you choose to stay and be active then there will eventually be a private subforum that not everyone can access. But I think most ladies have made it clear that to us FB and giving out our real names and our location and all our families real names and everything else you can gather from FB we are simply not comfortable with yet as we are basically still all strangers. You have to give time for trust to build in these groups. Most people aren't ok with just jumping into it.

So glad you figured it out. It's kind of hard to explain.
The only thing is I hate not being able to see everyone's siggys!

I tried Forum Runner...my phone keeps crashing. Maybe cause its an older iphone. I don't know. I can't use pinterest on my phone either. But the facebook app works.

Oh well. I will read stuff for the next two weeks and maybe post here and there. Then I can't get on I guess. I know two ladies from here from my other PRs and I have my other PRs at least.

In my other PR we didn't start the FB group until we'd known each other for a few years. I don't think we have to wait quite that long, but I'm not quite ready to lose the DDC and move to FB.
