Burning up time on Facebook

Post by jason » 20 Feb 2019, 19:48

I've noticed this is an open group. Doesn't this mean anyone can see people's comments on it? Wouldn't it be better if it was a closed group ? I think a lot of other bands FB groups are closed. If I want to talk about the Stranglers all night I don't my other FB friends seeing that. Have I got a point or I have I got this wrong?

Can't really say I've given it any thought. The problem with "closed groups" is that it all becomes a bit secret squirrels and all that.

I guess in some ways it's good some people on the outside will see posts about the band but I personally would prefer to use it in a private group like this. Maybe that's just me though.

We don't need a return to the Sensitive Squirrels :twisted:

Why are you concerned about your other FB friends seeing what you post? If you want to talk Stranglers all night on a dedicated page that's your prerogative as an individual, stuff what other people may think.

A lot of similar groups on Facebook are closed so I just thought Burning up time would be too but it's no problem. I've shared Stranglers songs on Facebook before to my friends and closed music groups. I guess if its an open group it promotes the band more which is no bad thing.
