I personally would prefer the group to be on closed.

I agree.  I think making the regular DTFers feel comfy there is paramount, and honestly, they should have to go through here to get there anyways.

Same, I am too much of an insecure teenage girl about my personal and internet life mixing to be in an open group.   :(

I don't understand what you guys think will happen. Surely there's not really any more risk of people posting something inappropriate on something you've posted/commented on (and that would therefore come up in your friends' news feeds) than there is of people doing the same on your wall or whatever? And besides, we don't expect there to be any inappropriate posting.

But it's your call anyway, if you want a private group to chat with your mates then the old one still exists.

It's also the fact that the way I interact with DTF people is different from my other friends. So when it's open I can't really feel comfortable posting everything.

To add to what TheVoxyn  and lonestar said, when we post on here, it's with our handles, not our real names.  If I wanted people to have access to information about me, I'd have a more open profile to non-friends.  The job hunt aside, I don't want my students to have access to any of my online activity, and I suspect that other people want privacy for other equally valid reasons.

I'm in basically the same position.  A lot of posters here have no problem sharing personal information, or know or have met each other in real life, and there are a lot of first names known around here (and some last names), but not everybody is comfortable with that.  The vibe on a message board isn't quite the same as the vibe on Facebook.  Similar, but definitely different.

The only reason I'm not too worried about it is because right now, I'm not looking for a job, and I don't really have a public side.  The only thing I'd consider even remotely a concern is that I have a lot of Facebook friends who I've met through various religious organizations, but I seriously doubt that any of them are so interested in what else I do that they'd hunt down groups that I belong to, check them out, and judge me based on what they find.  Some might get one or two steps into that process.  But even if they did that, screw 'em.  They know me from church; that doesn't make me a prude.

Ah, screw it, may as well join with the green wig and the name given when teaching in the orient.
This is as exciting as superluminal neutrinos. The sexy thing is that this actually exists :D

I don't really know how to say this appropriately, especially since this thread hasn't been posted in for quite some time, but I left the Facebook group due to privacy reasons. This has nothing to do with the people posting there or whatever, but today I found out Facebook has updated their whole profile view once again and while my whole profile is completely shut off from the outside world, the new lay-out shows the groups you're in as well, even when you're not befriended with me. Since my Facebook basically contains lots of stuff about me (and hence I have it shut off), I do not want people to have the possibility of looking me up here on DTF, since I post stuff that can be personal here sometimes as well.

Call me paranoid or whatever, but I want my online personality (Facebook, basically) to only be accessible to people I know and since I know screenings through social media happen before job applications, I don't want my being a member of a Dream Theater Fangroup be visible to anyone who can view my profile. Again, this has nothing to do with the people, with the band or with anything else. It's me and me alone, so until the group isn't visible anymore, I will not be in there. People can add me on Facebook if they feel the need to though.
