Pretty open to causes. I just don't like e-mails that don't really pertain to me from spamming group administrators.

What about causes?

Hi Jimmy, Thanks for your response and feedback....Your point about administration is important (not that I expect lots of people wanting to join though we'd be happy to have interested writers...though, having the option to go private or eject unruly members seems important). It also keeps the "private" aspect of the group, especially if we start sending our writing to each other as a group send. Thanks! Bruce

Hi Bruce, The one advantage a Facebook Group page has over a Facebook Fan page is that the adminstrator has a lot more control over the membership. As an administrator, you can kick members out if you choose to, but you don't have that option with the Fan page. You also can't really keep the Fan page a private, while you can with the Group. Based on what you have shared, I think you already have the right solution for your writer's group. cheers, Jimmy

Adirel, Very good points....I'm in a small Tahoe-area writer's group <10 members and we talked last night about creating a FB group so we can have a handy way to communicate with one another. Sounded like a good idea, but it's not the sort of thing where we're trying to attract numbers or new members, but more a private tool for ourselves. Maybe there is something more appropriate that you know about. It's probably alright, but just thought I'd get your 2 cents. Thanks!

Well thought-out theory. You're a genius Adriel. I'm going to go get me a Facebook page! There are too many social-networking opportunities these days. I really appreciate you staying on top of all this.

Hi Adriel, First of all, thank you for the kind words on Dublin Townhall. This article is what I have been suspecting about the limitations of the Around Dublin FaceBook Group. Now, I do think FaceBook Groups are useful in providing free advertising to friends of members about one's work; however, it's hard to elicit active participation once people join. The comedy duo Frangela provides a perfect example that strongly supports your idea. Instead of creating a FaceBook Group, they simply created a FaceBook page. They have over 2,000 friends, and the comedy duo keeps us all very engaged with what they're up to. cheers, Jimmy

I'm finding out. Look for the "People for the Eating of Tasty Animals" page.
