Where Should We Start a Group for FOPP?

Those of us who have taken up the challenge made by suffolkjason in 'Friends of Persona Paper - The Launch' ( have been discussing starting a private discussion group on either Google+ or Facebook. I said I'd do it, but I'm not sure which site is most used by most of the FOPP members. So I thought I'd ask. I don't hang out at either place much now, but have accounts at both sites. So I can go either way. What about the rest of you? Where do you have accounts? For purposes of the poll, please only vote for a site if you have committed to take the Challenge. If you can only participate on one of the sites, please vote for the one you belong to. If you can participate on either site, please choose the "either one" option. Only vote for one site over the other if it is the only one you can use. If you aren't a FOPP member yet and you just want to vote, choose that option.

I don't do facebook, but have been wanting to open a google+ account for awhile and would be willing to do that.

I tried to vote for Google+ but it wouldn't let me, I'll come back and try later.

I keep my facebook and my writing separate to be honest, for professional reasons mostly. I guess I could use my google+ account though. we should all get in the habit of using google+ anyway its apparently a great tool for writers

I had the same problem, but I think it takes a while for the votes to show. Mine probably didn't count. Yours appears to have gone through now.

I voted for Google. Yes, there is some sort of delay. I just learned about FOPP today and signed up, BTW...and figured out how to tag us as

I have already joined the official group of PP on face book and there are more.

BarbRad wrote on August 23, 2014, 8:37 PM

I realize that. I belong to those groups, too, but I want to start a special group just for FOPP. I just want as many people as possible OK with the location.

BarbRad wrote on August 23, 2014, 8:38 PM

Remember, groups are separate on Google+ as they are on Facebook, only more so. Only other group members will see the posts in the group.

BarbRad wrote on August 23, 2014, 8:39 PM

I know how to tag, just keep forgetting to do it on posts that aren't about Persona Paper.

bestwriter wrote on August 23, 2014, 8:44 PM

Those groups are general where all can join on invitation but here I am not sure what the basis would be. Are only FOPP members allowed to join or can any other PPer can also join? And also what is the qualification of an FOPP?

melody23 - I created a separate FB page for my blog Old Roads Once Traveled that ended up being for all my writing. That's where I post most of my links. That way I don't feel like I'm spamming my friends since I'm not very active on FB. I only put links on my personal page occasionally.

Either is fine with me. I'm less experienced with G+, but I'll figure it out.

BarbRad wrote on August 23, 2014, 10:52 PM

I"m sure you will.

melody23 wrote on August 24, 2014, 8:20 AM

That's true, we could have a secret group

melody23 wrote on August 24, 2014, 8:21 AM

I was thinking about creating another facebook page for my writing the way I have done for twitter but have never got round to it

Feisty56 wrote on August 24, 2014, 7:05 PM

I can use either, but would prefer google+ for the reasons Melody 23 cited.

BarbRad wrote on August 25, 2014, 7:25 PM

This group would be open only to those who accepted the FOPP challenge. It's for discussing strategy and would not involve sharing links to PP articles. Those are best shared in the existing groups.

BarbRad wrote on August 25, 2014, 7:45 PM

Thanks OK. I appreciate all you already do for PP by posting and commenting. I'm sure you'll do whatever else you have time for.

bestwriter wrote on August 25, 2014, 7:51 PM I see a change here in that all articles could be tagged FOPP.
