NAC FB group

Other chapters have active groups, why don't we have a group? We have a feed that is never used. What's up

Re: NAC FB group

I dunno.. NAC is a very big chapter, area wise, and there's not a lot of social interaction and wheeling... I can only guess that the chapter is dying down due to the age of our vehicles (fewer of us) and more of us in the phase of life where wheeling and wrenching and jeeping is not a top priority, or even a top 10 priority. No offense intended, just what I see to be a fact...

Edit: I didnt' know we had one to be honest, maybe that's the problem... haha

Re: NAC FB group

I'm a rare user of facebook myself, but I do see that it has been used in the past by this chapter, so I get the utility of it. We need to talk more about that.

Re: NAC FB group

Honestly not sure who was running that. I know Bob had started an instagram for a little while as well.

NAC FB group

Well it's not a group on FB it's a page. Groups are a little more interactive and you can join them. I don't think pages are as useful as they're more for disseminating information rather than encouraging communication. Could it be changed to a group?

Re: NAC FB group

How about this: group is public, with current NAC BOD members as admins (changes with BOD)

I say make the private group, label it the unofficial group and once the NAC BOD replies they can be admins and make it the official group. Just my .02

I'm all for it.

Personally I have backed away from social media in a big way .... barely read it anymore. But I realize that isn't the norm these days.

the MWC is explicitly "non-official" so probably do something like that, probably won't be private though

Re: NAC FB group

I made the group -- https://www.facebook.com/groups/315910965571102/

I did not set any other admins yet, since it can be annoying

Feel free to add anyone who you think is interested in NAC events or discussion

Thanks
