Whoever is running the group would have to be friends with the others to invite them, which would show to their friends.

is that so with private groups?

i actually remembered there was a group and looked for it a while ago, but duh.gif did not find it. so i think it should be posted somewhere here if other people want to join.... cause since it's secret, well, nobody can know about it.

possum, i understand your concern about privacy. i personally do not want to add just whoever is on AS to my fb friends. i only add those who i feel i know on a personal basis already, and who i would call, well, friends. flowers.gif

even if you join such a group, you can still protect your privacy from potentially malicious members. i have my settings so that only my friends can see my friends list, for example. some goes with all other info you mention.

and i think it is definitely time to have some official AS representation on fb. thumbsup.gif

I mean whoever is running the group would have to be friends with people to invite them, and then their friends could see who they are friends with.
Unless AS had their own account which people could become friends with? I don't know!

I have quite a few AS members on my facebook, but I always make it known that I don't talk about the stuff I talk about on here publicly. Private messages and chat only. . .

Most of my irl friends do know stuff, but there are a few better off not knowingcertain things.

A private group is a good idea if we can make it work.

I'm not even comfortable with social networking sites such as Facebook.

We will definitely add a Facebook page for After Silence very soon and will post the link on the board!! It will be a public page, however, similar to the one RAINN and other organizations have on Facebook.

For safety reasons, only AS staff can create and monitor any group/activity that is directly associated with After Silence.

Thank you, Vera! Sounds good! smile.gif

I might join or "like" the after silence fb page......I already have fb "liked" rape support pages, I think ppl just think I am supporting them, not that I necessarily am a survivor.....unless of course, they are one of the ppl that knows..

I won't post any personal info on it but I will join or like the page and read the posts..

It would definitely bring awareness to rape/child abuse ect to have a page on Facebook in regards to AS. From my experience I would do a page & not a group, it is easier to like something than to push for people to join.

Can't wait to help push you guys when you decide to create a page! smile.gif

I know I have done a page and a group for the survivor organisation I am, because of the easiness of the individual page. Face book however, were urging a group for organisations.

Looking forward to seeing the FB page and joining in.

Hmmm... I can't do it. Can't join anything like this on FB. Too out of my control for my liking...

If others feel comfortable, then that's great.

Just can't do it..... sad.gif

Anyone does what their comfy with of course but also remember whatever you like does not necessarily show that you survived it, it shows that you support it.
