Social Media Updates

Post by FTW »

We are making some changes in our Facebook settings.

While our primary Older Bikers Facebook group located at https://www.facebook.com/groups/olderbikers AND all of the special groups for individual states, or countries are about to explode as Spring approaches, we are changing some USER ACCOUNT NAMES.

Facebook has THREE styles of accounts.
  • Profiles
  • Pages
  • Groups
Our Groups will stay the same. They are private and we have multiple admins and moderators that can monitor all the groups around the world.

Our PROFILES are the problem. Some of our members, (me especially) have been kicked off Facebook multiple times due to user names that were slang or nicknames because I prefer to NOT use my real name on the Internet.

As a result of being kicked off so many times, in order to avoid loosing contacts with hundreds or thousands of individuals because I can not PROVE that my legal birth name is Older Bikers chapter XIX, we are moving all of our profiles containing nick names or club names over to PAGES for non-profit organizations.

This will allow multiple officers to make posts and reply to private messages, all under the name of a particular CHAPTER PAGE or COUNTRY PAGE instead of their real personal name.

The only draw back is that we CAN NOT send out a PRIVATE MESSAGE to anyone UNLESS they contact us FIRST by clicking on a BUTTON and sending us a MESSAGE on our Chapter or COUNTRY PAGE.

So, the bottom line here is that we NEED ALL of our Members and Friends to go to a Country or Chapter page, (once we create them) and click on the MESSAGE button, so that we can communicate with them privately.

Keeping the lines of communication open is VERY important and is a mater of survival as a group, so please contact us.

Here is an example of one of our non-profit pages.
Please use it and click on the button to send us a message so that we can respond to you privately.

Thank You
