Why Facebook Groups? When we analyses the easiest to use and most widely available platform we looked at built in website discussion boards, whats app groups and Facebook groups. Facebook was our platform of choice as it has already the widespread registration with most our users as well as having the capabilities to share documents, photos, ideas etc. and also protect members direct phone details from being shared. If you are not a Facebook user and wish to join but remain out of the Facebook realm why not join Facebook as a basic user (no image, profile details etc, just email and password) and you can access our group.
