Facebook group? | General Discussion | Forum
i've noticed groups seem more active on Facebook than maybe they once were. The Body Suspension group is a good example imho. I wonder if it'd make sense to have a COBM group page?

On groups any member can start topics, and everyone with something to say is encouraged to reply. I understand in theory that can happen on a wall, but there is a certain ettiquette that one is supposed to do this only if addressing the 'person' who owns the page. It is the difference between interacting with one person or a lot of people. I also thought it'd give a sense of ownership, of belonging to something rather than it being a seperate entity. You can identify other members and interact with them if you choose too.

Please, no one start a CoBM Facebook group on their own.
As far as starting a new CoBM FB group, I'm hesitatant if it's the right move, or if there may be a better move. Instead of starting a new FB group, how about adding a forum tab to the current FB page? The FB page is already established with over 4k followers and it would remove the need for people to try to follow CoBM updates/info from yet another source.
Would anyone use the curent page in this way?

I agree if any changes are made it's not for people to make them entirely off their own back. There's no rush!
Forum tab is a great idea.
It seems a shame if the facebook page has 4k and we're lucky to get 4 posting members here on a daily basis. I also agree that you don't want to undo the work done by the current page. I just thought it might be a nice way to get more people active and involved. There's a difference between saying you have a connection and being a part of something.
Anybody else got any ideas?
Given the number of people on the all ready existing facebook page, it's always possible to do some promotion of this site and forum there. Its possible that many of the people there aren't even particularly aware of the forum's existance.
When I first joined the forum there was even less activity than there is now. Now that we do have at least a few active posters, that might be enough of a base to start to grow and become more active. If people come to the forum and see that there is activity, I think that promotes further activity in and of itself.

I know I post here more than on facebook and I pay attention to here more than anything. But I would love to promote the site. I will have a lot more time to dedicate afte black Friday and the holiday rush but id love to bring the facebook users to here.

Facebook would be good to draw people in, but old schoolers who are used to forums will have no problems coming and connecting here. Hell forums where the first Facebook and Myspace like places people could go. Maybe the CoBM should open social section similar to myspace. I believe there was one at one time. (I used to have a profile), this way those who are accustom to forums still have away to connect to others in this lifestyle.
