Why doesn no one post in the groups anymore?
I wonder that myself. I belong to 10 groups and in some of them, I am the last person that has posted. Is disappointing.
That reflects my experience too. I think they've turned out to be a bit of a waste of space.
There seems to be more activity when a group is started than there is after it has been around for a while. I was not aware that there was an overall decline of activity among all groups.
Don't know about all groups Calboner, but I'm a member of several and they do seem to go dead after the first rush of people joining.
I think it's because most issues that concern the members here get raised in new threads. Anybody with an opinion on that issue/fetish/desire/want/need tends to post in the thread. The groups seem to be duplicative...
I don't even know what a group is??? Is it just me, or maybe folks just don't know about them?
Social groups (under 'Community' in the black strip at the top of the page).
The Real Ladies Group is a group, El.
Plus, it gets regular posts. I belong to another one as well that has gets regular posts, although at a slightly slower pace.
It seems people tend to collect groups as a way to indicate their interests as opposed to actually participating in them. I've seen profile pages with 20 or 30 groups listed on them. No way is that person posting in all those groups.
i think you're right. other than the real ladies group-people don't seem to post in the other groups too much.
I think that the big problem with the LPSG social groups is that they are not set up to generate subscriptions in the way that the message boards are. When you join a group you are not automatically subscribed to receive notice on your control panel of new postings within that group, and when you post in a discussion within a group you are not automatically subscribed to receive notice of new additions to that discussion. One can add subscriptions by using the "Group Tools" link on each group page. I have found it expedient to add a subscription to each of the groups to which I belong, but not to discussions within groups, as that clutters up my control panel needlessly. I will make a suggestion on this matter in the "Suggestions" forum.
Thanks for that Calboner.
