    Default Facebook?

    Anyone interested in starting a page for wehavelupus on FB?? I think it could be another great way to connect with each other. My husband actually suggested it!

    It's a good idea. Anyone who has been on WHL a long time want to do this?

    Apon veiwing my page ive created on FB i also thought a page for WHL would be a great idea too, ive spoke to soo many ppl world wide thru my page, its a great idea, ive got this forums link up on my page but to do ure own would be a fantastic idea the ppl with lupus are coming thru fb thick and fast so i would make this decision pretty quick, ive got 700+ members so far im pretty sure you would get more spesh if i link ure "page" too.

    Cant wait to hear what everyone thinks

    Yeah, well, I'm not allowed to use Facebook. My hubby's specialty is computer security, and he really doesn't trust Facebook. He's always showing me the reports about attacks by hackers on Facebook. He calls it a "major target". Because I also do banking on my laptop, he absolutely won't allow me to go onto Facebook with it, too.
    He even has my computer set up so that downloads aren't authorized unless he logs on, and scripts are not allowed, so I never get pop-ups.
    Sometimes, it's a real pain living with a computer expert!

    Your husband may be ahead of the curve on this. I've thought about closing my FB account too. I don't think he's being paranoid.

    Well, I was just about to say that starting a WHL page on facebook was a great idea. So, Conrad, I will leave it up to you. If you are pondering closing your own facebook account, I don't think I'd want WHL on FB.
    Let me know what you decide!

    Peace and Blessings

    Some of my other forums have started FB pages, but nothing really happens on them. If people are concerned about having a backup forum - I do have a forum on my personal website that's on a separate server at http://forum.conradaskland.com

    I don't know, but the internet has a way of going in waves, and I wouldn't be surprised if FB loses interest at some point like MySpace has. But my personal forum will always be around - at least as long as I am.

    But the FB page is probably still a good idea - I just don't want to admin it. I'm on the computer too much as it is.

    think its good idea as long as some has got the time and patients to keep it running updating and such like i have done a couple of small fun type groups and they seem to fizzle out quickly unless kept going new topics and such like!! think it would be good if some one would put in something like the top 5 thread of the day from here to see sort of thing that are talked about, a suggestions section and such like! just wish i had the neergy to do it!

    as far as fb in general i think it is good as long as you are careful don't open links unless you sure about them don't add people unless you know them or have people in common you are aware what request your accepting and such like!! i think your right conrad it does have it waves!! i love it thou cause i can keep in contact with family and friends all over the world that i might not have even known about specially some of my family in the states!

    Conrad;
    I think that WHL with the forum on your personal web page is enuf!! As you said, you are on the computer way too much as it is and so am I......
    I've noticed that many member have put WHL as one of their links on their FB pages. So, let's just let things remain as they are for now.
    Yes FB is the new thing and very popular right now. Even I have let my MySpace account go defunct

    Take Care My Friend
    Always

    I put the WHL link on my Facebook page http://wrightrs/facebook.com Also at twitter. On twitter they started something new. So on my twitter page I started a list of ppl from WHL. There's is a link for it. I will look it up and post the list link here later. But my twitter link is.http://wrighrs/twitter.com

    Take Care,
