I admin for my M17 group. We set it up as a private group, then had Bump members message us to be added to the Facebook group. We sent invites through Facebook by email address. Worked pretty well. We only added people who had actually participated in the BMB.
tgortney said:But, I feel like the bump mobile app has gotten worse and so slow. I haven’t been able to participate much because the app sucks. I think a lot of people who are lurkers now, might be more inclined to participate with Facebook. I know we did check ups/roll calls on our May 16 group.
@lurvleybunchococonuts I get where you’re coming from. The bump is a great tool for FTM pregnancies. I’ve just found that people love it more for PP.
You could always just wait to migrate after people have babies (to see who really wants to bond over raising tiny humans), why rush.
People tend to want help/commiseration with baby questions more than pregnancy. Also late night chats on TB, that’s when it was really active because everyone was up at the same time. For example, one really well known member from my May 16 group didn’t show up till PP because she was a STM but she started participating after everyone had our babies and giving super helpful advice.

@offtoneverland it actually is a coincidence that I saw this post the same day I started posting more. I’m not arguing with you nor do I care to. I had an opinion and suggestion as I would on any thread. I see it’s not being well received by some (which is fine). I think I’ve been pretty cordial and non-hostile in giving said opinion though.
