No signs of slowing down, with dozens of new member requests every day.
Facebook stats claims that the group is quite active, too:
It’s great for validating that endmyopia is a thing people want to discuss. Unlike e-mails and private forums, the “social proof” benefit of Facebook is undeniable.
And yet I’m not a big fan of the compromise, giving Facebook more screen time, more user metrics, more “engagement”. Also there’s nothing to stop them from shutting down our group if some big lens advertiser on Facebook doesn’t like our message. Or just the weird direction free speech seems to be going in the US / Europe lately, I like to be less part of platforms that may be part of agendas.
Next goal is to move some of the productive conversation from Facebook to our own group here. Le Meow!
No very specific plan yet how to accomplish that, feedback always welcome. For now I’m happy with you guys being here and us figuring out together how to make the best use of this kind of community platform.
