I’ve just spent a frustrating two days trying to set up a Facebook link for the group. A ‘Page’ would seem most appropriate, but I can’t set one up independently of me as a person because I can only have one Facebook account. Trying to add someone with a Facebook account to the page results in the person being added to my ‘friends’ list.
If I set up a group, then you must also all become my ‘friends’. Sorry – no insult intended – but I don’t want everyone’s updates, etc, coming to me, and Facebook keep changing the rules, anyway, without telling us, which means we have little control over what comes to us or what we can do with our personal information. I’ve already switched off my own sister, nephew and others because of all the terrible (to me) music they insist on bombarding me with, never mind trying to add their dog’s Facebook presence as my ‘friend’! (No, I’m not joking …)
When Facebook comes to its senses and lets an individual set up isolated ‘Pages’ for organisations, which can then be transferred to a different representative of that organisation as the person involved changes, I will venture into the water again.
OK, time to look at Google+ …
