Forum Deprived - Facebook Group Set Up

A couple of our old loyal readers and forum participants went ahead and created a Facebook group. It is called "I miss Guatadopt forums". While this group is not connected to this website and is not being moderated by us, I'm happy to announce it and encourage folks to participate so that we can keep our community going.

While on the topic of Facebook. I VERY rarely use it personally - no time or interest. But it is a place that many of my old, non-adoption friends actively participate. For this reason, to shield my worlds, I made a decision not to accept friend invitations from the Guatadopt world. So if you've sent me one and it has been ignored, it is nothing personal!!!

I'm terribly forum-deprived, but I don't have a Facebook account and don't ever plan on having one, so I'll guess I'll have to stay deprived. :-(

Kevin- Thanks for posting this. I miss those forums so much. It was the thread that held my sanity together during our process. Even though my daughter has been home for two years, I would still like to keep in touch with the people I met here (especially those still waiting).

I am just a beginner at FB. I didn't understand Kevin's post. If I would joint the new FB for the Forum deprived, does that mean that all of the forum deprived friends of mine and the original FB friends of mine will all be one giant FB group?
Or, is there a way to keep them separate, like two separate yahoo groups? I am part of several yahoo groups, and they are all kept separate.
Can anyone help explain this to me before I join?

Lizzie, if you are a member of facebook you just search for the group then click to join. If you are not a member of facebook then you will not be able to join. They are seperate from other groups but based on your settings you will see posts show up on your wall. Not quite sure what you are looking for. More info on groups is under help on the facebook website.

To steal from Kevin.. Paz.
