I've never come across another forum which is so over mediated. I think it turns some people off to the point that they don't post as much as they use to.
    There ARE more moderated forums, to be fair.

    I like that FB is more private. I am a member of a few secret groups and can openly chat about things without fear of judgement. BH got really nasty a few weeks back...
    Just because your interacting on FB doesn't mean you have to be friends with every person in the group. My security is high, all anyone not on my friends list can see is my name and a profile pic... I don't really see that as a security risk. I have a few BH friends on my FB - they are some of my most trusted friends.
    I like that I can come to BH with a problem and chances are that someone else has experienced it and can offer advice. I also like reading all the different topics. I'm also on my phone a lot so FB is a bit more convenient and I didn't know that BH groups existed.

    Have read this thread with interest - thanks for your feedback everyone, some very fair points made.

    Sounds to me as though forums, like bubhub and any special interest forum, are great for making new friends and getting varied opinions on a diverse range of topics. Facebook is great for cementing the individual friendships that you've made.

    I think it's fantastic that members do make great friendships on bubhub that they are able to take over into their every day lives. I don't think you'd do that as much on a recipes forum, for example, but you share such emotional issues on here that real bonds are formed. That's one bit of feedback that we got from the survey was that viewers loved how much they were able to connect with other people and that made them feel less isolated. So


    To help those who don't want to move to FB with their DIG and who are feeling abandoned by their group, we'll look at creating some group areas that you can move to after your DIG - eg 'parents with babies under 6 months old' and similar (somebody suggested this in the survey too) and look at changing some of the privacy settings - maybe non-googleable sections where you can share photos too.

    FB is free on 3G on my phone. BH isn't.

    I'd get into what I don't like about BHs moderation, but last time I questioned it I was PMd a warning.

    I would like to say that I have found I can only participate in my due groups once they are on fb.. it's private, we can share pics, and it's possible to reply to people without our posts getting lost.

    I don't think the thread system on bh works when people just want to chat, I just find i get lost, cant keep up with personals, etc.

    I totally understand the issue with loss of forum usage etc but I just think you have to accept that fb is far more due group friendly.. maybe come up with some way to work in tandem with fb groups or etc.

    Just banning them is going to put people off i think.

    I think the majority of regular members are part of BH based groups (both open and secret/closed) on Facebook to be honest.

    Just as much judgement happens & just as much b!tchiness happens on Facebook as it does here when threads get heated. The only difference on Facebook is that everyone can say what they want (ie personal attacks, swearing, name callings...all the things that CAN NOT happen here for very good reason).

    If BH wasn't moderated, and we could say whatever we want - BH forums wouldn't exist to be frank. Too many people would be put off!! I know I would be if I was a newbie! Plus there wouldn't be any Facebook groups because there wouldn't need to be. Think about it.

    I'm part of forums that are *far more* moderated than this place as well.

    I think that creating areas based on children's age/ milestones are a good idea, and then within each section there can be threads for monthly chat as well as specific issues that would be generally posted in DIG's. I think it would make it less complicated than having a specific area of the forum for every month that has happened.

    I remember someone saying that the facebook style chat would be coming back on here, but so far it hasn't?

    Can Bubhub please look at a time limit on long the mods have to work out if someone will get infractions or not. That way everyone knows where they stand


    All so if people can get a infraction for using the roller eyes emoticon because it's seen as offensive should bubhub just remove it? Or you could you please add a disclaimer in the rules about using the roller eye emoticon.


    All so it's coming clear that some people (my self included) think some of the rules are unclear. Can bubhub go over the rules. Maybe even start a rules thread so members can have in put in to them
