  • I prefer FB but in the back of my paranoid mind is that FB scares me for fear my future political career will be halted due to what I've said on line Embarrassed

    HA! This made me laugh! I'd still vote for you!

    Fortunately, the group is closed and therefore only members can see posts; they don't show up in news feeds or as comments on your wall for others to see. Therefore, I vastly prefer the FB page because I don't like saying too much on here (in terms of personal information) or showing photos.

    Why do you think that TB is more secure?  I'm confused.

  • I like the FB page, but like other have mentioned (on the FB page) it moves a lot faster and I have a hard time keeping up. The other thing I'm not used to yet is figuring out who is who. I know a lot of bumpies real names, but not all.

    It's not widely advertised as the point is to keep it a little more private. It's meant to be a place where regular posters can post things without worrying about lurkers or anyone and everyone on the internets reading it. If you want to join search for it on FB and let the administrators (Jaxy, and MrsAmyB) know your bumpie name so they know who you are.

    I think people are more careful about what they post on TB vs FB. There are still a lot of people on the FB page that I personally don't really "know" but your guard gets let down because it's a "private" group.  Just my $0.02

  • I prefer FB since the info shared is not google-able
  • The FB page moves so fast, and because it's ordered by most recent reply I miss a lot of posts.  But I *love* the like button, and the fact that it's a closed group.  Overall, FB wins.

    Hey Stace - something to keep in mind....

    We can all be members of the group and see each other's posts on there - but if you have your security set so that the only people that see your information, wall posts, notes, pictures, ect. are friends, then anything you post there, outside of the group, will not be visible to members of the group unless you are also their friend.

    Does that make sense?

    Said another way in case it doesn't - there are girls that are members of the FB Bumpies group that I have not "friended".  They cannot see my pictures,my personal info, my wall posts - any of that.  They can only see the things I post within that group page.

    Don't know if that would change your 2 cents or was maybe something you already knew.  It sure made me feel better using the group with people I don't know.  :)

  • I far prefer the FB page! I'm always on my iPhone and it's a PITA to post on the board from it! I do agree that the FB page is a little harder to navigate through the posts though.

  • I like the FB page better b/c I am usually on my iphone and I am rarely on TB anymore.
  • I am clearly not on here super often, but I'm trying to get myself better acquainted with this board so I can make some mom friends locally (cannot believe this baby is so close to being born) but I'd like to be part of the FB group if y'all will have me.

    If I need to prove my worth first, I totally understand.

    Yes! Exactly.

    Of course the FB group would have you. The only thing you have to do to prove your worth is win the dance off. IMO, anyone who can rock it while 40+ weeks pregnant should win.

  • Anything to get this baby out! Hahahaha
  • A couple things that bug me about the facebook site:

    No subjects, I like to quickly scan the board to read the threads I'm interested in, harder to do this on FB. 

    A lot of questions could be asked on the bump without privacy fears, even these have shifted over to FB.  I fear the Seattle board will become a ghost town.  New people aren't going to get the collective wisdom of this awesome group. It feels a lot like when everyone shifted from the nest and started asking all questions on the bump,  the nest is a whole new crowd and the Seattle bump probably will do the same.

    FB seems harder for me on my phone. (probably the lack of subject/scanning ability)

    I also miss the pictures and knowing how old everyone's kiddos are.  I'm too lazy to cross reference the name list all the time.

  • I definitely wish there were subjects and somewhere to have baby tickers so we knew how old the kids were.  :)

    I was also thinking that if one of the ways to have people in the FB group is for them to be regular TB posters, if we stop posting on TB then no one will be a regular poster and be able to join.

    Yep, I knew that. There's still a document for all members to see with our full names mapped to our bumpie names. I still prefer to be anonymous here on TB. It's not a huge deal though, just my opinion. I am rarely on here anymore  (darn work)
