annawright: Hey I just learned a thing on here. You don't become "friends" unless both people follow each other. So be friendly!

marianna: Before everyone heads out and joins other social sites because G+ is closing Aug. 2019, I think we should promote our own Forum here. Winter Silversmith, has done a great job categorizing the forum, why not use it??

Winter Silversmith: This forum is great for information, but it has little to do with socializing like Facebook or G+. The alternative is not 'instead' of this Forum it's a place instead of Google+ I think people have the ability to be members of both (& FB is they choose)

Winter Silversmith: Thank you for the compliment though, I do hope people use this forum more for GCG related information, and www.mewe.com as an alternative to G+ so we can tell others about GCG and the fun we have here.

annawright: The forum is great. By all means, promote and love it. I personally think we should spread out the GCG social media presence in all directions. Everyone has their preferences so if we have options everywhere, we're more accessible in that outreach.

marianna: All great and valid points. Networking is key in all platforms. I just like to focus on our GCG sites we have now, when you are super busy it's hard to visit all of them People have said they would use this forum more if they could peek inside

Winter Silversmith: If you are a member you have full access to this Forum, otherwise you do not. That was a strict condition by Roddie (grid owner) and his GCG for the creation of this new Forum. To protect our members from outside abuse.

Winter Silversmith: If you're "super busy" you join the Forums to get updates on grid status & you join one of the social networks like Facebook or MeWe for socializing with friends. The forums is more for information sharing and updates not socializing (never has been).

annawright: Participating in the forum and/or social media is by choice and how much time you allocate to it is also by choice. You can do all, none or rounds of what you feel like. It's all good. They're options to connect to, when you wish to:)

Winter Silversmith: I agree Anna, while people come to Forums for GCG information (like grid status or bugs) it's just part of a large patchwork quilt of potential websites to visit and draw information from that suits your individual interests and needs.
