Facebook
 
The last DDC I was in established a fb group about halfway through our pregnancies and we still have about 55 members, is that something anyone here would be interested in?

I was just thinking about this past week and sent you a PM.

Unfortunately this will die. If we go to fb. It always happens. I think after babies would be more appropriate. But that's me.

JM does die after a group :( but I'm going wherever the herd wants to go :lol:

I don't mind either way but I do love the convenience of a fb group, lets just see what the majority thinks :)

I agree FB does tend to be a forum killer, but I much prefer FB.

I agree with Holly, this board would die off. I would rather see something like that happen after the babies are here. I like that this board is its own place although a hideaway would be nice!

A Facebook group will kill this forum. It always does. In the end, I prefer the FB group for checking in with the group but when the babies start coming, it is impossible to keep up on the FB group. Posts get pushed down fast on FB and it is so hard to find a thread once it gets pushed off the page. That is why most groups agree to wait until after the babies come to move to FB. I honestly don't care though. I'll go wherever the group goes.

The Hideaway request is in, it just usually takes about 2 wks before it's up but we should see it in another week or so!

I would prefer to wait until after babies arrive.

I'll go with the flow, but FB is much more accessible :)

I love FB too, but I think we should wait until after the babies are here. It gives us all a lot more time to get to know each other and feel comfortable with FB sharing. Plus like was already mentioned, it will be hard to follow posts when babies start arriving. I think those sorts of things are so much easier to follow in a thread format.

So my vote is yes to FB, but waiting until after the babies are here.

I agree that FB is a forum killer, I'm good either way though. Maybe waiting until the babies are born would be better.

P.s. I also have a little bit of a soft spot for the poor hosts who get chosen just to have everyone run off to an FB page and leave the newly chosen hosts with a forum full of tumbleweeds. Been there, done that!

Earthy.Mama January 21st, 2014 03:53 PM

Re: Facebook
 
There are a lot of pros and cons to both. I definitely like the idea of waiting till babies are born to start one as threads are easier to keep track of everyone.

Gotta stroke my stalker-gene :D

I'd also rather wait until the babies are born before moving to FB. I feel like the threads are easier to read and organize on this forum, and if we move to FB our group on here will die off.

Re: Facebook
 
I'm up for either ways. I am still in a group from my Jan 2012 group from The Bump of over 100 ladies and we are still a very tight knit bunch. We started it probably towards the end of second trimester and it definitely killed the forum but I really felt like we didn't get to know each other until we were on FB. There are a lot of things I would post on FB that I wouldn't post here. After we get a hideaway I will probably be a little more open.

I vote on waiting till after babies. Plus once we get a hideaway we can get to know each other more

I will go with the flow. I do wish this forum was more mobile friendly since I'm not on my computer much and sometimes find it irritating to navigate on my phone. I don't have that problem with Facebook.
