We just started a fb group for our ddc and I want members input on how to go about adding ppl that aren't part of the DDC. I don't want to make anyone uncomfortable so would like everyone's input.

Let me know how you feel/think etc...

EDIT: Update post 18.

It depends we are still early in the getting to know our babies but some of us like to get to know the women too and we have already started to establish that. We need to just be careful of trolls and people who clash. We arent a huge group but we dont need to lose people we get along with cause they brought a person who clashes so bad or causes fights.

I vote only DDC members. I think the Facebook group is an extension of this, if people weren't members here I don't think that they should be included there.

I agree only JM members. I think if people want to develop other friendships they can friend one another? I've been lucky to be part of a JM FB group of 60 ladies that has been going strong for 4+ years now. I think ours DDC has the makings to go the distance and one of the reasons it has been so successful is that we have our kids i common and don't have to get mixed up in the drama of friends of friends etc.

Only ddc members and I feel they should be active too. Like active enough they could get into the private forum.

I agree that it should only be for active DDC members. We have all gotten to know each other over the past months and have bonded. I would hate to see people become uncomfortable or to have any drama start. Also, we are all pretty open with each other and that comfort is rreally nice when it comes to discussing certain topics, im afraid that wouldnt be as easy if we have strange people being added that most of us dont know.

Doesn't really matter to me either way. The group seems to have a good balance, which is part of why I joined. But new people doesn't always mean bad people. So I'm ok either way. I do feel kind of bad though. I didn't join until later on and I just kind of jumped in to the fb group. Sorry about that.

Given our breastfeeding picture post I think it's best we stay within our DDC. Not that I think anyone is bad but... I know you ladies... I don't know them... didn't go through 9 months of pregnancy with them... don't really care about them either.

I agree with the idea of only active ddc members, I know and love this group and would like to keep from it getting watered down with people I don't know at all.

I say just our doc but I think someone just added someone, and I would feel bad ruffling any feathers.

Well ionly added one person. Though she's only commented on one post that I can tell so far. She's a FTM and was having trouble with her breastfeeding so I added her because I thought the group discussions woul be helpful if there was anything she wondered about. I do understand everyone wanting to continue the same dynamic though.

I'm choosing Other as I'm going with majority. Right now it's pretty obvious what's going to happen

Actually I just changed the settings, I think it's clear where the DDC stands.

There are two ppl added that are not JM members, I don't feel right kicking anyone out, I'm sure they're good ladies, obviously, so I'll just ask them to introduce themselves so we can get a good idea of who they are

Everyone that's been added, even the members not as active, have at least posted monthly with reasonable amt of posts in forum, I always checked this first before adding anyone so no one is a troll don't worry!

Well I apologize for not being active in here, but I have had the most stressful pregnancy and wasn't comfortable sharing what was going on here since this is a completely public website. I promise I am not a troll, Alison knows me from our feb 2012 ddc. And I am a good person who will be active in Facebook so I hope you ladies give me a chance even though I wasn't in here very much. I might add though that you never really "know" anyone on this site anyways, so its still early enough to get to know someone "new" like me :-)
