  • I have memberships in many groups. But I rarely have the time to be in them all the time. I do try to at least make it in once a week or so, but that can get very hard to do. Time just runs out and on my list of importance Groups on Cafe Mom are far from the top!

  • I'm in a few groups but my posts never seem to be answered. I always feel like I'm the only one in the group, because all of the other posts are like over 2 weeks old. Atleast in the Q&A there's actual interaction!

  • I am in several groups. I have my memberships in those groups set to send me a daily digest. I read the posts with topics that interest me, respond when I can, and post when appropriate.

  • I also admit to getting sucked into the abyss that is question/answer. I do find that the groups I belong to offer much more constructive and supportive advice as well.

  • I would say mainly time is a factor. When you see the groups along the way they look interesting or may cover a topic you might want more information in and the groups can collect pretty fast. What you find though is that you only have so much time to be online and other things come along. This section eats my online time.

    I don't think anyone joins with the idea that they won't be active they just don't get around to it.

  • Some people just like to read and be informed. It depends on the group I guess. Some people join groups and then just never sign back on. You never really know because there can be many reasons.
