Kind of keeping with the idea of helping to build bond among us, would anyone be interested in a facebook group for all of us September '13 mamas?  I figure it will give us a little bit more private means of sharing info, and also becoming fb friends if anyone wants to, without posting our names publically.

 

There's 3 different privacy levels available for a fb group:

 

open-anyone can see, join, or read posts

closed-only the group name and members will be visible to any non group members, posts are private

secret-only members can see the group, it's members, or any posts

 

I thought we'd do a poll for anyone who would be interested, and which privacy level everyone would prefer for the group; or if anyone is even interested.

 

My April '10 DDC has a fb group, and we still talk and share updates about the kiddos and such, and I thought that might be fun for us to do as well.

Since I'm guessing quite a few mamas would be interested, I'll go ahead and make the group, and make it closed for now, so the posts are private but the groups is not inaccessible to anyone wanting to join.  In a couple weeks if there's a desire for more privacy, the privacy settings can always be changed. smile.gif

splath - We already have a mutual friend.  I am LOLing at the small world over here.  I sent you a friend request - I'm Brooke Smith.

 

As for the group - love the idea!  Let me know a link when it's set up!  I prefer closed but not secret settings, IMO, but I'm open for discussion on that topic.

Ok, haurelia found me.  :)  I didn't know I was so secret...lol.

 

This link should work for the group...

 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/179652128868670/

 

Let me know if it doesn't...I'll leave it open for a couple days, then once the majority of us have joined, I'll switch it to closed and others can PM me for the link.

 

Also, go ahead and post your username once you join so we can recognize everyone.  :)

I had my facebook settings all messed up, so if anyone wants to search for me again, I should be "findable".  :)
