My best friend was part of the April 2014 DDC on here and they created a facebook group for ease of sharing photos, videos, etc. They have all stayed very active well after April so I thought I might offer to start one for us too!

It would be a totally secret group- this means your friends cannot see posts or even that the group exists. You must be invited by an existing member to get in, ensuring our privacy.

If anyone is interest, please reply to this thread and at me as a friend on facebook because I cannot start it without inviting at least one person. :) My name on there is Jordan Elizabeth Eck.

have a feeling it will be more useful further into our pregnancies but I thought I might get a jump on it.

From my experience on these boards I've seen that using the DDC during the pregnancy and Facebook after the birth works best. That way the group doesn't get split up from the people who are not active on Facebook.

Just my 2 cents.

I chose not to use Facebook at all, so unfortunately, a private Facebook group would not work for me. I actually chose the mothering forum because it is more confidential and apart from my everyday life.

I also choose not to use facebook and especially since in these threads we often talk about personal issues, I really appreciate the higher degree of confidentiality provided by MDC.

SplashingPuddle and LightheartedMom- I most certainly respect your decision not to use facebook and like SoleilMama333 stated, it will probably get more use after August. Secret groups on Facebook cannot be seen by anyone unless they are actually in the group- other people cannot even see that you belong to it. While I will certainly be posting here more often, especially knowing that experienced moms like you will not be part of the facebook group, I think it might be a fun addition since I would rather share photos of my child with everyone I will have the joy of interacting with here for the next 8 months on a platform that is not public like this forum is. :)

sent you a fb message- its in your others box. I agree though that for during the pregnancy it is nice to use this forum but I love my April 2012 group that became a fb group-we're still in touch all the time that way

PMing as I actually feel a lot safer in a secret FB group than here where things are trolled onto public sites! -shiver-
