My sept 2011 board created a Facebook page for the ladies involved in our board. It's actually easier for a lot of ladies to be involved there because the are on Facebook more often. This is just a suggestion but if there was interest I could start us a page there. I still posted on the sept board but there is a lot more conversation going on on the Facebook page then the board. We don't have to, just thought I'd throw it out there.
While I like that idea, I think it detracts from our board here. Isn't that the reason for pg.org? I like to keep my FB life and my pg. org life separate quite honestly. That is JMO. I think we should work to be more active here. I have been preoccupied with some stuff going on with my DS and just haven't had much to post about on here, but I will try to start posting more.
There may be interest. Please don't think that I was trying to be negative about your idea. I am not opposed to you adding me to the group there at all. I just hate to see all activity move to FB, kwim? I can access this site from work, and I try to limit the times I get on,but it is a nice break. However, if everyone is posting on FB and not on here, then I will not be able to really view it until late at night. That is just me though. I have seen pg. org go from a very active bulletin board to a very slow one.
I find the groups on FB really hard to follow if too many people post around the same time. You have no idea who responded to what. The posts move up based on the most recent reply, but then you have scroll up and down to get to everything. I would wait and see what others say.
We have one for the July '08 board as well and what I like is that it is completely private but when a new subject is posted, it goes to messages to draw my attention to it. The drawback is that I don't have access to FB at work like I do this board. I'm open to both, too!

I'm open to both, but I agree with mel on much of it. I love pg.org, hence why I have been here so long. hate that it is not as active as it once was, but it has introduced me to so many great friends, so I like to support here when I can. And while I have a few private groups on facebook, it is easier to keep track of new posts, etc here.
