I have been logging into our dear DDC lately, dreading the inevitable notice that we are closing (though it means a new batch of January babies on the way!). Some other mamas suggested that we start a facebook group for this DDC, so I did, and it is:

Mothering Mamas January 2010

There is also a Winter Babies facebook group, but that's a little bigger and more picture oriented (though it's sweet to see all of those faces!). This new one is just for all of us on this specific DDC (regardless of when your baby was actually born), and since we all know each other, advice/funny things/venting can still be a part of the dialogue.

When you join the group, post a picture of your babe with his/her name and your DDC name in the description, so we can all know who we are!

See you there.

Tried to find the group by this name but couldn't. It said there was no group by the name. Suggestions on how to find you?

Hmmm...I'll look and make sure that the settings are correct, but we've had a handful of people join already, so it must be "findable," somehow. I'll investigate--but make sure that you write "mamas" instead of "mommas" in the search box. Let me know if you can get on after all!

I was able to find it. I searched under Groups on my home page. I had been searching under "Find People."

I searched under "pages" before, not "groups". Found it now! Thanks, PoetryLover!

Yeah, I'm a little uncomfortable with that myself. I deleted it from my news feed, but I'm still a little afraid my "non-Mothering" friends might find my user name from a future news feed. I can't figure out how to stop the feeds. I used to know, but then they changed the privacy info on FaceBook.

Does anyone else know how to stop FaceBook news feeds?

You're welcome. I was hoping it would be helpful to others who had difficulty.

How public are the facebook groups? Does it work like the people pages where all yor friends can read your postings?

Well, I think there are a couple of options--right now, the group is completely open. However, we have two other choices--we can make it closed, which means that the administrator (me but I'd be willing to give up the job!) has to approve of new members, kind of like on personal accounts. Or, we can make it secret, which means that it doesn't show up on any feeds, and is only joinable by invitation.

I think it makes sense to keep this open for the moment, until the DDC closes, since many people might want to join it now and it would be good to make that as easy as possible. Next week, if everyone agrees, I'll switch the settings to "closed" or even "secret" if that's what we need to do to keep it private. And I'll make a note on the "facebook" thread so that everyone knows how to get onto the group. Does that sound okay?

I would prefer if it doesn't show up on the daily feed for everyone who is friends with one of the members. What do others think?

Hello everyone who sees this, especially after this thread closes!

As of May, the facebook group will be either closed or private--if you'd like to join: first, look for it under "mothering mamas," and if you can find it, request to join. If you *can't* find it, we may have moved it to private/invitation only. If that is the case, send me a personal message with your info here in MDC, and I'll add you as soon as I read it!

In addition, there is a Life with a Babe group which a lot of us are joining, as well as a Winter Babies facebook group. Hopefully, one way or another, we all can stay connected with each other and with our precious little ones. It's been so nice connecting with you all on January 2010 DDC. See you soon!
