I've noticed on our ttcftft grad page (as well as all pages on p.org now) that there is a facebook like link. It got me thinking how so many of us (when we first joined p.org) loved having a place to come and talk about ttc, etc without everyone in our lives knowing about everything. I'm not on facebook but I'm assuming many of you that are have friends that are family members, etc. How do you feel with how public and interactive p.org has become with other social media sites?! Do you want to intertwine it all so it is possible that IRL family and friends can find you here or do you still like coming to p.org and keeping the rest separate so that you can have some privacy here?

Just curious!

I keep them seperate. I have not liked the pg.org FB page. I am a member of my BB and this groups private pages on FB. If there was any unwanted over lapping, I would probably stop going to one of the two websites.

I also don't mix the two. Especially with all the TTC stuff and my long history with pg.org, I have no desire to share it with people I know irl.

I've "liked" pg.org on FB, but that's it. I've told my best friend about these board (and she's on here now). But that's it. I've liked soooo many things in FB that I seriously doubt if people think that something more is up with me and pg.org. I like the two being separate. Just like my military wives forum which is by invite only. I love that it's that way and no way do I bring that over to public FB.
And like Joy said, only my two best friends IRL know of our fertility challenges so I don't want that over on FB b/c it's still really upsetting to me at times.

I liked the FB page, but I prefer them separate. I too like having a place to talk to other Moms without everyone on fb knowing all the details.

ITA. DH and my RE are the only people who know my full IF experience. I don't want to share it with others IRL.

I really like to keep them separate as well. I have one friend on preg.org but she is one of my best friends who would hear all of this stuff from me in person, so that's no big deal. I probably shouldn't say this here but I have way too many preg.org friends on FB. It's not that they are not nice people or anything but I feel like I don't know a lot of them very well and I start to get people confused. I just didn't know how to friend some and not others, without feeling like a jerk. That does not include anyone on this board!!! Mainly girls from my BB's who may not post that much.

Probably. But, won't it look strange if I am still friends with someone they are friends with and then realize they are not friends with me? Oh, the drama of social media. Wink

Nah....I bet most people don't even notice. Expecially if you don't communicate with them often. Either that, or I've pissed off a lot of people. Wink

Kayla, it wasn't until last summer that I started friending people on DS's BB. I've gotten rather close to some of them now, but it's taken time (been on there for almost 2 years now). I have refused a couple of friend requests (here and my military wives board) because I need to be able to trust the person to not share certain things from online to FB. Plus with DH being in the military I'm a bit more selective. If it means that some people don't care for me because I won't friend them, then oh well.

Know what really bothers me? When a BB turns to FB groups instead of staying on here. Sad

That. If you unfriend them Kayla they probably won't notice!

Ditto.

I also keep facebook and preg.org seperate. My family (or even friends IRL) don't need to come lurking on me here!

I'm such a dinosaur that I didn't even know this group had a private FB page!

Although I'm not on FB I would be the same way as the rest of you. Always wanted and enjoyed being able to keep p.org separate. I guess that is why I don't care about the new and exciting changes to p.org that relate to social media sites like facebook, twitter, stumbleupon, etc.

We used it for like a second. But I don't think anyone uses it anymore.

I am glad Ava's BB moved to FB instead of on here. I never went to her BB page on pg.org, but I do enjoy keeping up with them on FB. Everyone is a lot more active there.

I like to keep them separate as well. I don't really enjoy the groups on FB. I find it hard to follow posts.
