Hi there, what would everyone think if this forum moved on to a different platform, a private Facebook group or a WhatsApp group?
I find this system clunky and not very easy to use.
This forum is a great group but personally, I find it’s format off putting - any thoughts?
As we have over 130,000 members Heyhop, I don’t think that this would be possible. What issues are you having with posts/ replies that we could help you with?
Hello and thanks for getting back!
It’s just not a very easy system to use and get a full overview with. I get an email alert with the latest message then I have to click on a link that only takes me to that very message.
Compared to a private Facebook group / WhatsApp group I can’t just go onto an app or a page and just scroll down the latest posts / discussions at an easy glance.
I’m part of many forums on both of Facebook and WhatsApp and this is the only group I’m part of that remains on this type of platform.
On Facebook in particular, groups can hold many members, often over 1 million etc, so I don’t see why a private Facebook group would be a problem (even do I appreciate some people might not have Facebook).
I personally find this system dated and not very user friendly.
If you go to the webpage you get all posts ….and can choose from date order
Or by most recently active
This forum is far, far more user friendly than Facebook
l usually have it on My Feed / My Hub/ Chat / Alerts
i like that it shows the first few words of the latest reply to each post , who it is from, and how many minutes ago it was made.
This saves scrolling down posts to find who just added the new reply... have you tried using this setting Heyhop ?
totally agree it just doesn’t work like Facebook 😉👍 I can say without hesitation, this is a safe platform for the purpose of advocacy I’ve made comments below.
