Cafemom groups moving to Facebook

Has any of your groups moved to Facebook? I tried to join a local moms group on Cafemom but got a note telling me that the group was now on Facebook.

They also want dues? Does any of your groups want money for you to be a member?


I wanted to be clear that the group is for play dates, and the dues are for arts and crafts for the kids.  It's like a MOPS if any of you are part of that but it's just a local group.

  • Alot of the groups have moved there or have a secondary group there because there are more people there and easier to find. I would not pay any $$ to any online group, thats rediculous.

  • No, but if they did I wouldn't follow. I really don't like FB, there's even more drama there than there is here!

  • That sounds pretty ridiculous. I left Facebook, anyway.

  • I have seen a few groups move to FB but they are either supplemental to the CM groups or just as dead there.

  • I asked in one of the groups I own if they wanted me to start a FB page and the answer was no. I guess it varies from group to group.

  • Never heard of paying, now I see your edit, that makes sense.
