Re: Facebook Groups
I personally think this is a good idea. If nothing else, it allows you to meet people who may be interested in what you do. I did not know about the "Fan page" problem. Since I was interested in FB only to do the Fan page (or I guess it is called a Business Page). Now, knowing this, FB is totally useless to me. I have a small presence, mainly to keep track of various people-- but most of this is business related. I really do not have any friends in real life. (I have Aspergers, so having no friends does not bother me). Having a group would be a doable socialization thing that a person with extreme social anxiety (like me) can do. (Art involves a lot of socialization).
Believe it or not, the old "Meet-Up" platform is a good one too for local groups (for example-- art groups). Of all the on-line platforms I have gotten the most benefit from Meet-up. (I do not even know if it exists any more).
