For the longest time inside The Lab, my private community was running inside of a closed Facebook group. My thinking was this:
- My members most likely are already on Facebook
- They find it easy to use
- It saves me hassle
- Notifications will mean they see conversations
As I now sit here a couple years later, I realize I was mistaken.
In this episode of Coffee Break Blogging, I share with you 7 specific reasons why I decided, after a couple years of having my member community on Facebook, I switched to a privately hosted forum for our Lab Community.
I also recommend that anybody else looking to have a private community inside of their membership site should set up from the start on a private forum that you own and control.
Give this episode a listen… and learn from my mistakes.
