Speaking (well, typing) for myself, I fear the loss of the ARSC list participants' cumulated skills and knowledge if we allow a facebook presence with our imprimatur lacking some of these participants. Incomplete info in often leads to misinformation out. Willfully ignoring the path to otherwise available information by taking an easier route that potentially avoids some of it- well, there are enough examples of that in daily life. It's why we have refereed journals.

I really don't think there'd be *that* much splitting. There is content of a more casual or lighthearted nature that I haven't felt comfortable sharing on the listserv, where it would essentially amount to spam, that would be much more appropriate in a section of a webforum or in a Facebook group. I am sure I am not the only one who's made such a calculation. I think people would be more willing to speak about, for example, what it is they're working on, too, sans the posing of a question, in such a context (whereas here, it could come off as haughty).
