As many of you know, I’ve been thinking about creating a forum here at One Green Generation.  Unfortunately, I am already trying to do too many things at the moment – some of you pointed out how much work maintaining a forum can be, and I agree.  So, I think I may have found a solution…

Yesterday I spent several hours creating a Facebook Page for One Green Generation.  There, we can each post photographs, recipes, questions, ideas, and even local meetups.  If you have an event you’d like to let everyone know about, you can post a link there.  If you have a new resource with fabulous information, you can post a discussion about it.  And if you have a burning question, please ask there!

I am thinking of the Facebook page as an extension of our discussions here – a place where we can allow our sustainability ideas to move into our personal lives just a bit, and use one another as better resources for finding information and learning new things.

So please come be a fan, and help create our Facebook community!  Don’t be shy – post questions today if you have time.  Let’s get the ball rolling on starting this new space!

Thanks so much for reading everyone.  I welcome your thoughts and suggestions about this blog and it’s new extension at Facebook.  See you in both places!

  • Just on the forum issue: I hate them. They’re bad to read, bad to follow, and are generally filled with rubbish. They’re also really hard to search. I’ve never met a forum worth my while or time.

    If you’re going to create something that is searchable, add-able and can contain content of any sort, I’d suggest a Ning community or a Wiki. Either are a lot friendlier and easier to search, use and manipulate.

    The problem with FB is a lot of people aren’t on it, and a lot more avoid it during work hours because it is a time-waster. Also, some workplaces have placed bans on it, which might lower your readership/user base.

    Just my 2c.

  • Thanks for the feedback, Daharja. I would love to create a Wiki – that would be my dream – but at the moment I just don’t have the time. So in the meantime I was hoping to create a place where people can ask questions of one another if they have issues or thoughts.

    That said, it’s just an add-on. I’ll still be writing here regularly!
