Seems like everybody in this group has moved on to Facebook. It is so quiet on here. I occasionally check in on here, but with everyone pretty much gone no one is really updating. It stinks I realy enjoyed being part of this group, but now since I don't have facebook it's pretty lonely. Just wanted to say that.

I know. I check here a few times a day, too. But everyone has just moved over to Facebook. In my last DDC, we didn't create the Facebook group until after the babies were all born.

Ya it does suck. I didn't join our FB group because my old PR moved to FB and I didn't want another one on FB. Oh well, these things happen - it would have been nice if they at least stayed on JM until the babies were born.

I agree - I have so much on facebook already. It's nice having a place that is dedicated to only this.

I don't even have Facebook so I feel like I'm missing out all together. Especially since if you post anything, now barely anyone responds it reads it..... Lame.

I have had trouble with posting on this site, and pictures are such a pain! Would you consider opening up a generic facebook page just for this group? I enjoy the facebook page a little better but check in here often.

And the good thing about the FB group is that it is totally private. On here, my Mom found out I was on this site from my computer, and I found out she could search for my posts from home and read everything I write.

Not trying to play the DA on this one, however when I joined JM I hardly got any responses -- sometimes it'd take a day or two to hear from just a couple of people. After the FB got going, I'd get responses within in minutes or sometimes at most, a few hours. Seems that people log on to FB more than JM and whenever there's a new post it shows up in your news feed on FB. JM is nice, but you have to sign in each time and open each post to read. As others have mentioned, FB is more user friendly on phones and ipads and such too. I still come to JM, but maybe at a rate of once or twice a week, versus multiple times a day on FB.

This group was always pretty quiet from the get-go I thought. FB makes it more active but I agree it would have been nice if this group had been more active all along.

Yea, I've noticed people aren't posting as much here anymore. I don't think our group was very active to begin with either. I don't get on the computer much over weekends, and the last few weeks I haven't had as much time to get on the computer as normal.

I was surprized this group moved to FB so quickly, my other one did not until after the babies were born. I agree this group was always quieter than the other ones. My otherones always did Christmas, Valentine, etc exchanges and due date buddies, etc...

I struggle with JM because I have slow internet (satellite ) and it just takes for ever with all the advertising crap they have on every page for it to load, I have never gotten a pic to load and I can not log on with my phone. But I have access to facebook with my phone easily. It is a bummer that this group has split as there were not many of us to begin with. (but I do agree it was a quiet group the entire time)
