We had talked about this when we first joined and decided it would wait until the new year so we can all get to know each other and learn screen names. Here we are at the new Year and a few have mentioned wanting the fb group. I don't mind starting one but before I do I would like to see how many are interesting in having it, I am doing a poll to see if the majority would like one set up now or to wait longer. Once a fb group is set up we will set up some requirements to join the group, fb is a bit more open with real names, profile pics, pics of families and so on, many do not want to share that information with those who may not be so active or lurkers on the group. Usually to join the fb group you must have x amount of posts on jm and x amount of posts to the dcc as well. Also you don 't have to join right away, you can join anytime you feel comfortable. Feel free to also post your thoughts on the requirements.

I'm not huge into the FB thing, and I'm guessing FB would kind of replace the boards, so I'm saying no. I feel like a lot of work has gone into our board, we finally have a theme, are setting up sub forums, etc.

The FB group is a great idea, but I think it might be a good idea to wait a while. The FB will quickly replace the board -- it happened with my daughter's PR. It's easier and convenient to use FB but it's also a lot harder to keep up with everything that's going on. With the JM board, you can be gone all day and get caught up a lot easier (this is coming from someone who can't access FB all day long at school and often finds myself drowning in FB threads and comments!).

I'd like to see us use the board and the secret forum right now. Plus, the secret forum is better for confidential information -- your hubby/SO might stumble on your FB by accident, but it's a lot harder for him to get into the secret Fun House!

Like I said, it's a good idea, but maybe we should wait a while.

When my previous DDC started a FB group...it pretty much KILLED the DDC because FB was so much easier to check in and post to on mobile phones.

Yeah if we did a fb thing, I feel like this DDC would be quiet. I like having a get-away from fb here.

I love the fb group. But I feel like we'd miss out on the board. Once we switched to the group the board totally died in my last pr

I think we should transition in July when people want to post photos of the babies and comments with more ease. I think we should let the babies arrive on the JM site, post birth stories here and keep everyone together until they would normally transition us to a playroom. That seems like a better transition to me.

My previous DDC transitioned not that long after the babies were born and I think that was good timing.

I kind of think that if we have a Facebook group, we will lose interest in JM here...truthfully too, I kind of like keeping it a little separate.

I voted to wait on fb. Its a great thing once the babies are here, but for now I agree its best to remain on jm. With my Aug07 group we are dead on JM but super active on fb. But, we've also been together for almost 7 years.

Haha I guess i'm the odd man out! I've had two DDC/PR transition from JM to fb and it's so much easier for me to keep track (and put names with faces).

I really like the idea but I think it'd be best to wait till we're a playroom and more are on fb with little ones.

It doesn't matter to me either way, fb is easier but I also come to JM and have been since 2010. I guess since fb is mobile that does make it a bit easier there. My past 2 ddc's made a group at the end of our pgs and the other around the end of the first trimester and neither of the jm ddc's suffered from it as not everyone joined right away. Those that wanted to remain on jm did and those that wanted to join the group and be a part of both groups did that. It seemed to work out well until after all the babies were born and the jm ddc turned into a pr, then the group became very slow.

Maybe at some point later on, a group can be created and those who want to join can, that way everyone can either choose to be in it or not. My last ddc's fb group started out pretty small until later in the pgs and after birth when the rest joined.

I think it'd be best to wait until late June or July when the babies are all here. We'll be busy and it'll be easier to see the pics and to check one site. If we do it now, it will kill the DDC board. The Sept 12 DDC/PR created our FB group in Oct and it was great timing. We were all overwhelmed and the board had pretty much died down, but FB allowed us to easily stay connected. It was great timing. We are all still very close and talk all the time, but none of us are on the JM PR board anymore.

I like the idea of a fb group because it would be much easier to check in on and actually participate in. That being said, if a fb group is started, I would be one that never came here anymore and it is true that the board would die. I do think before or around when babies start coming would be a good time because I know for me once I have a newborn, getting on the computer is going to be hard, but hopping on the ipod while nursing to check fb will be much easier.
