Yes, we have taken the Mytoos Facebook group to a read only page. For some off reason it's showing on the page there are 11 members and I don't know why...there are only 4 of us (Charlie, Nancy, Janny and myself). The 4 of us wlil be maintaining the page and updating with some links in the very near future.

I really feel this is a good idea. For folks who are needing help, it can get lost on FB. It is better to direct ppl here to Mytoos so the serious questions, wont get lost in all the chat.

Great idea Admin of Mytoos!

That was the reasoning behind the change.Serious issues were getting buried with all the chat.Origninaly our thoughts were that FB could be another venue to get the word out about cockatoo's but it very quickly turned into something we were not looking for "fluff".

For the cockatoo's sake it is best to keep the information in one place.

I agree...plus, I have to admit I can't keep up with both either and I know that this is not a fluff board which is entirely why I love MyToos!!!

Actually we made the group a read only page on Facebook.So there are articles posted on there periodically but the only members are the Admin and Moderators from Mytoos.We don't accept any members to the Facebook Page now.

I just saw this article. I also saw posts where people said they had joined or requested to join. Not wanting to be left out in the cold, I requested to join as well. Now that I see that membership is exclusively for administrators and moderators I realize that I will be rejected yet again. Woe is me! smile

lol dont feel bad hun, we all got booted from the FB page :P. It was actually for the best though, with all the chit chat that was going on, the important topics were getting lost. We can all still chat with each other on our own pages though smile.

since the FB page is read only is there a way to subscribe to it so it shows in my newsfeed on my fb page? or a way LIKE it on FB so whenever new articles are posted those show up on my page? w/out joining there's no way to keep it ON.

I went over there and couldn't find a way to put a "like" button but there must be a way. Check back while I make some contacts.

It's a group so there's no way to "like" - "likes" only apply to pages. And since it's a closed group w/out membership except for the staff there is no way to set it up for notifications for new posts.

Give us some more time to discuss this and see if we can find a work around....the reason we took the group to read only was because it was quickly becoming a "chatter" group and honestly, we just don't have the time to moderate/admin the forum and a Facebook group. But as FB has evolved and many unliked minded individuals have formed their own groups/pages perhaps we should reconsider. For now check back to the group for updates is the best advice I can offer.

We have made some modifications to the settings (thanks to Beeps and her sister for the tips) and everyone is welcome to join the group, and you can then set your notifications based on personal preference, but we have set the page so that only Admin can post.
