    Default New Bubhub Rules for Facebook

    Hi Everyone

    We have been having a review of things here lately, after quite a number of people contacting us about the constant chatter about facebook groups - especially within Due-In-Groups.

    When we first started, we did not allow links to, or chatter about Facebook at all - in the same way we dont allow links to other forums. It does take traffic and discussion away from the hub, and we work hard to try and provide an environment here that everyone can feel welcome, find interesting and informative discussion and take part.

    Eventually we decided to allow links to facebook as our members wanted that.

    But we have found it is getting to the point where it is affecting our Due-In-Groups. People are joining, forming a DIG for facebook and leaving. Those who do not wish to join the fb group are inundated with constant chatter about the fb group, links to it etc rather than just being able to chat here.

    Quite a lot of people use the forum to be anonymous. To be able to chat without their 'real life' friends and family seeing every vent and talking about every symptom - and bubhub gives that outlet. While facebook groups are private, not everyone wants to join facebook or join a private group.

    SO ....

    We have decided to try something new - a compromise of the 2


    Each Due-In section, when it is created, will have a thread (stickied) where you may post links to facebook groups and chat about facebook.

    All other threads though will be 'facebook free' and we will ask that members respect the Bubhub and the other members by NOT posting links or chatting about facebook in the rest of the Due-In-Group.

    This happened to me when I was having my DD in 2012; I met others here and joined a DIG but the majority left and moved the group over to fb. I didn't have nor want fb at the time and it was a real bummer. Anytime I asked after my group, I was told to join fb. Grrrrr.

    This happened to be as well, very quiet DIG that I would say barely existed because everyone went to a Facebook group. I joined the hub for anonymous support. I found that most in our DIG completely stopped participating in the bubhub group once the Facebook one was created.
