> Hi ARSC, the Online Media Committee is looking into the idea of creating a discussion group on Facebook, and would like your (ARSC member) input about the possibility. In short, a "Group", in Facebook terms, functions more like a web forum, and would not replace our existing Facebook "Page", which is designed more for ARSC to communicate with members and the public (but, to a lesser extent, supports user submissions).
> For examples, you can look at existing Facebook groups for similar organizations:
> AMIA (https://www.facebook.com/groups/76820094560)
> IASA (https://www.facebook.com/groups/179371048900314)

> We have created an anonymous 5-question survey on Google forms, link below. Please take a moment to complete it to let us know how you feel about the idea. The OMC will discuss the results at our meeting later this month and will update here after we've had a chance to process results and weigh options. If you would like more information about what such a group would entail, feel free to write me and/or Andrew Hansbrough ([log in to unmask]).
