The Facebook group is growing. Faster than expected
May 4th, 2022 at 10:40am
 
Slowly but surely the Facebook group is growing. Already up to ten members. Which is more than I expected this early. There is already a person asking for tips on avoiding twist issues when winding up to throw. I want to be sure it is ok for me to link to the forum before continuing further. I figure it will generate more traffic here and help grow the sport. I could use some of your guy's help. Plus it could be cool having both resources at hand in my opinion. https://www.facebook.com/groups/381389413910970/?ref=share

Up to 18 members! Anyone on here with an Etsy shop or similar is encouraged to join the group and share links. I want to know where I can buy when I'm not making them haha.

Glad to see that there's finally a Facebook group. I don't hang around these parts of the web as much as I would like really.

I can understand that. For the most part Iím not a huge fan of facebook, but I do see itís potential to spread education, and maybe even gain knowledge from people who havenít made profiles here. It will be nice to have you in the group

Loving the group. Although it would be nice if it was set to private, so only members can see who's in it and what is posted. I'm not entirely comfortable having friends being able to comment and like my posts. But maybe that's just me 🤷‍♂️

Just joined. Very excited to see how it goes. I have a hard time tracking my previous posts on here so I think Facebook is gonna make things easier.

🤷‍♂️ my friends and family seem able to find my posts in the shepherd slingers group though, as they keep liking and commenting. Depends what facebook decides to shove down everyone's throat on their feed any given day according to their mysterious algorithms.

Either way, maybe it's just me and my high value/emphasis on privacy that gets me feeling a bit funny when a group's privacy settings are low.

Same. Same.

Not that I want to keep my slinging secret, but I'd feel better engaging and posting if all 1800 of my Facebook friends couldn't randomly see it in their feeds.
