What are your thoughts on creating a private group on FB for our little group here on Large Families?

One was recently started for my PR and I really love how convenient it is. It will be private so there's no chance family or friends will see what you post. You can also manage your comments from your phone's FB app if you have it. There are a few members that only post on FB now so it could be a way to reunite the group.

The downside, when joining your name is revealed. However, your profile is still private. You have to add the members as fb friends before they can view your profile or what you post on your personal newsfeed.

Any takers?

Also, here I am on FB for anyone that wants to add me that hasn't already.

I vote no. JM is here in place for people to come and go. I don't like the separation that comes from starting separate FB pages for groups that already exist elsewhere. Aside from a few of you that for whatever reason I have formed real irelationships with, I don't want FB access with everyone. I miss UM as much as one can. I hope she can come back here soon.

I'm also a no, one of my PR's joined there and kind of ruined it here, and I like that its moderated here, not at all there and that makes it very cliquey and awkward sometimes

I'm ok either way....But I do know that it tends to kill a forum pretty quick if there is an alternate place to go....

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

I didn't think about lack of moderation being a problem but that is a good point.

It was just a thought, I had nothing but good intentions.

One of my boards here just made a comment that they moved to FB private group, and they were "voting out" moms on it, and that's translated to some very bad feelings on JM in that DDC, its sounding a little out of control

I like fb as a quick way to throw out a thought without having to post a whole explanation. That being said, I have a separate Facebook account for ppl on JM and I can't remember who is who. I still come on JM all the time but love the quick updates I can get on my phone.

BTW, anyone can add me. I'm Rebecca Halfbaked
