FB group?

I used to come on PG.org so often all the years we were TTC. It seems like a ghost town over here now. I'm a little sad. Is there a FB group or some other place you ladies are connecting up with each other? I remember when Birth Boards used to have hundreds of posts and constant support. I miss that. Sad

Not that I know of. This board has been pretty ghostlike from the beginning- just not too many of us due in January, I suppose!

I think the traffic to the site has slowed overall, and I'm not sure why.

Every other birth board I've been part of has been crazy busy, constant posting, tons of people.. maybe it's just a new era in the birth boards now. :shrug:

my 11/07 birth board is on fb. I was never very active with 8/09 bb--seemed to lurk more.

Funny- I'm pretty tight with my Sept 07 girls (we don't have a FB group but we all keep in touch there), but mostly lurk with the Sept 11 group (they're on FB now). Not sure what the difference is. Maybe since the 07 group was my first BB, and I felt like I needed more of that support as a first time mom? Don't know!

Yes! I've been updating my space, but haven't seen much else out of anyone.

I'm in a Jan 2014 FB group that spawned out of a What To Expect forum and it's got over 100 active members. I just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed the boat if everyone had defunked to a FB group here too.

Oh thanks for the reminder! I forgot about my space.

I don't like using FB groups. It's too weird and not as private I don't think. I keep my FB pretty low key though, only a few close friends and most other people I've deleted. I don't use it for businesses or fan pages either. I would prefer to be here but it does make me sad that we aren't more busy....

I'm actually in the process of trying to close my FB account, or bring it down to the absolute minimum. I mostly use it for international/non-local friends.
