It's going to happen at some point until JM can be more competitive. Patty is aware, she was in my first DDC and we talked about this when our PR went to FB. Hopefully things continue to upgrade for her :-)

JM can be so hard for me because I only have access from my phone and it's such a pain to do. I sent a request to join the group, but feel like many don't know me ad well because I can't get on here as often. :-/

FB also opens the door for harsher opinions because it is unmoderated....not interested in that.

eh... I'll see I don't do the wall or anything else, so unless folks are posting in the secured group, like here, I still would miss out on updates and what not.

With my old DDC, the FB group became cliquish, competitive, and critical which in turn became more dramatic. Many ppl quit the group. Sadly this was before the babies were even born. I felt very disconnected from the group both on FB and JM. I feel kind of sad that it seems most people here will now update on FB instead of here. It was bound to happen eventually though. I'm just glad we all pretty much stuck to JM during our pregnancies and childbirth when we needed the extra support and comraderie.

I had a similar experience as Kara with my prior DDC and just am not a fan of FB in general (although the ability to easily post pics is great). I hope you ladies will still post here when you can. I've enjoyed this group!

My DDC fb group is wonderful. We have had to kick out a few gals over the years. A troll, and one who constantly caused fights and drama.

I like this idea. I'm open to trying it. I get nervous because I didn't know whether other facebook groups were open or what not so I never joined in the other ddc facebook groups. It is however, getting harder and harder for me to get on here through my computer as my son uses it a lot and my girls are starting to more and more. I've been getting on here through my phone, but there have been several times I've started trying to reply to someone's post and it messes things up because JM isn't mobile friendly site or something. And the picture thing gets annoying. I was thinking of trying the mobile photobucket. Anybody know if you can use that to post pics from your phone?

Looks fine, as it's closed. but I really, really can't wait until it's secret. My pretend FB name is pretty easy to identify, so you'll know it's me when you see the request but I do check in here a lot. I get so confused with who's who without the siggies or now, the user ID's

Mamamindy- join!

And I use the mobile phototbucket to post pictures but you can't shrink or edit them



I'll put up a vote about moving it to secret. I think we have most people on now

JM has been hard for me to navigate at times too, I was so excited to see a FB group! My family has a private FB group and it works great so I think this will too. I agree that it will be hard to know who is who without the siggies I've gotten used to everyone's JM names and siggies.

As far as cliques, I don't think our DDC would have issues with that. I think we've all been pretty civil for the most part

Is the fb group busier than the board here? I'd love to join the fb group...especially if it's busier than here! I know I'm a noob to this board still, so if I need to wait so you all know I'm not a troll- That's fine!:-)
