Freefrom that is spot on. I am in the Anaphylaxis Campaign FB group and I would welcome some more "discussion" however I see this could be difficult to manage. I am in several FB groups but would welcome being in a allergy one.

I couldn't find one that was relevant for cows milk allergy that was any good, so I started one myself! started in April this year with 8 members, now over 180members, posts very regularly, so much so I had to create a website to hold all the information! I don't trust any of the formula companies face book pages really, they aren't very supportive envy

I am but have to admit I don't go on there very often. I think they need to focus on their social media more and try to engage with people rather than just posting information or trying to direct traffic to their website. With social media you have to think 'why would anyone want to engage with our Facebook page/Twitter feed etc?' & 'what's in it for THEM?' rather than 'what do WE want out of our Facebook page?'. Too many organisations try to use Facebook just to get more people to visit their website and this is a big mistake as that's not why people go on facebook, they don't want to be pushed towards websites, they want immediate info and immediate engagement. Doesn't mean they shouldn't link to specific pages on their website when relevant but that shouldn't be the main focus. Try to get people talking, invite discussion. This can be scary for some organisations and does need to be managed properly to ensure that any abusive or offensive material is removed asap but it is the best way to really get people involved.

I joined one quite recently (did a search for 'food allergies') but it's not that good - only a post every couple of days and the posts that do appear aren't that relevant to my circumstances. I find it much more useful on here when I get a chance to come on!

Not really. DS is allergic to dairy and eggs so I joined a vegan group instead and it's great for getting tips about unexpected supermarket finds!

And find it helpful?

I belong to one and it was very helpful but now a couple of posters have made it a little strange.

I wondered if anyone here belonged to one?
