New Facebook Groups

New Facebook GroupsWhat is the deal with these New Facebook Groups?? They keep messing with things and I don’t like it. The idea behind them is they are more group-controlled and less administrator-controlled. Here are a couple of the big changes (the good, bad and ugly – the ugly goes first):

  1. You can automatically add someone to a group.  Not invite them, but add them into the group without their permission.  That’s ugly.  You can remove yourself from the group but it’s up to you to do it.
  2. You may get a lot of notifications unless you change your settings.  See the video on how to do that.
  3. New Groups may have some better features to communicate as a group.  Also, they have a new Document sharing feature….hmmm will this start competing with Google Docs?  Time will tell!
