Re: : New Facebook Group: Light Railways of Australia

John Dennis

I post to open groups like ours, and my friends do not receive any notifications. I "like" photos and make comments on posts in open groups and my friends do not see any notifications. (My wife is a facebook friend so I can monitor these things)  

If you "unfollow" the group then you will get no notifications either, which is the way I have my groups set up. I have to explicitly go to a group to see activity. However if you do not unfollow a group and then "like" or comment on a post in your timeline then I guess it goes to all your friends.

I do think the Facebook groups are good for photos but I do feel uneasy about sharing my railway interest with my non railway/transport friends hence I prefer to post in closed groups as I like to only share my hobby with people of the same interest. I suppose I'm conscious of my image and don't want to bore my non transport friends especially as there seem to many groups that cover very similar topics.

Whilst what you say is true, too, if somebody creates a facebook page for the sole purpose of joining a railway group, then surely there should be less concerns?  


Don't know about that. I was lucky enough to go to Wings Over Illawara this year with a mate. I was astounded at the screaming foamer  plane spotters. Mentioning to my mate how odd (some downright weird and spooky) they were, he gave me a disbelieving look and said, "do you not realise that's how strange you train-spotters are to the rest of society???" It was an eye-opener for me. I don't consider us strange, but clearly lots of people do. 

Don't just answer the question, question the answer.
