Post Move to Facebook?
I will be the lightning rod here and ask the question. Should we move the Nexus to Facebook? I don't like FB much, but in the last year it has become the dominant vehicle for social interaction via the web and we must consider the pros and cons.

I'd like not to get sidetracked on a general rant against FB. I know it encourages shorter posts. The general privacy issues are well known but the privacy settings can be set to roughly what we have now.

It would make administration much easier; it would, more importantly, expose us to a wide audience and make access and posting easier.

I could start a poll on this...

I tried Facebook and didn't find any reason to stay. I vote NO!

Absolutely not. I'm not against all social media. I'm active on Twitter, have a blog, etc. However, Facebook's history with security and privacy issues is such that I will not give them my private information, even such non-sensitive information as my name. I'd be sorry to leave the Nexus, but if it goes to Facebook, I would not feel that I had any other choice.

I really can't see the advantages. Consider that sometimes, some forum responders make real long responses. Just doesn't seem those would fit on Facebook.
