Discussion on: Are Facebook Groups outdated?

Following this chat closely! I try my best to avoid FB groups as I know it's often inevitable that you outgrow them, BUT in order to prove there is an appetite for our members to gather online, I have been asked to set up a FB group as it's free and easy for our members to use. (Unless anyone knows any other free alternatives?)

So I'll be setting one up as a trial, but knowing that eventually we'll be migrating to another platform. So keen to hear what you discover Sydney!

100% agree! It was necessary at the start to prove our members wanted a space to connect. We've been able to grow from a public community to a private, monetized community all through Facebook Groups in under a year. But we're absolutely outgrowing Groups at this point, and FAST! The capabilities aren't meeting our model anymore, but it was a great proof-of-concept.

I'd love to hear more about the migration across. I'm specifically interested in the migration from FB groups to another platform and how this might impact your current community (e.g. content, past conversations, potentially even some members). Sounds like you're not there yet, but if you're up for a chat when you cross that bridge, do let me know. Sounds like you're in a good spot :)
