Mondays with Myrt - 2 Jan 2017 Creating "Secret" Facebook Groups

If you are determined to bring the extended family closer by sharing genealogy tidbits with them, why not create a "secret" Facebook Group? Then your posts won't get lost in Facebook land, and they can be geared specifically for your family and no one else.

Ol' Myrt here will demo how to create such groups using the example of a secret group for the panel participants of the upcoming GPS Study Group. (That's Genealogical Proof Standard, not maps and directions.)Even though you'll watch her create the group, because the group is secret, you won't be able to find it to join. And thinking of "joining" let's also discuss the ethics of adding someone to a Facebook Group without asking them first. That's a definite no-no.

Of course, with Monday being a national holiday in the US, we're sure to see a few more of our followers in the house, particularly government, post office and bank employees.

And I'm sure we will be talking about Cousin Russ' "Clean Tree" work.
