    Totally agree with all of this for the same reasons.

    yes the idea is basically that DIG's or long time birth/IVF/TTC groups can have a private group rather than going to facebook.

    Its not intended to be in place of general posting that people still do on the hub. But photos and some more personal details people often like to only share with people they 'know' or are friendly with.

    I don't think it will stop the migration to Facebook. I don't think it's a bad idea though, but I think the majority of people will go to Facebook no matter what. (Boo Facebook! Boooooooo!)

    …are you referring to yourself? Because then yes, it would make me sad too!

    Just to point out - that DIG's and birth groups do not show up in google searches

    we are going to do a trial with one or two DIG's and see how it goes. there are a few technical things to work out, so we just want to test it with a couple of groups at this stage.

    Hey @BH-KatiesMum

    Has these private DIG's started yet?
    I find the migration to Facebook once people all get together in a DIG really frustrating so i hope that what you guys have planned fixes this 😊

    Hi @MrsLadyBug

    we are currently trialling it with a couple of specific DIG's. It seems to be going well but there are a few bugs to be worked out so still sorting through things.

    we will let you know
