I thought it would be nice to have a group on facebook so we could chat live if you want or just read and comment on daily postings as friends. Not to take away from the forum which I know we all feel is priceless I just think this is more person to person not health or bari related. It would also give use a place to find each other on facebook. What do you think? Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down

If you search on facebook

St. Luke's Bariatric Forum

it should bring you to the group or search the link below.

Not a bad idea, Jerry.  That would be a group effort.  Good.
 
By the way, I am on Facebook already and if anyone would like to check out my page, feel free to do so at your leisure.   (Nadia Worobij)  There I posted my vacation pictures and other things about me as well.

There already is a facebook page for St Lukes Bariatric patients and has quite a lot of people already

Nadia- you are on fb? I thought you were against the idea

Wize, You are right.  At first I was, but now I am a changed woman.  However---I just don't want to spend too much time glued to the computer.  I would rather be out living an exciting life.  But Facebook is a good way to communicate with people given if you have the time to do so.  SO I created an account with Facebook and use it dually for friends and also to drum up my business.

Wize is the site your talking about

Bariatric (Weight Loss Surgery) Buddies

I looked at that site but I didn't think it was a St Lukes forum site I thought it was a bariatric site in general. I did just go to it and see Megs started it. Please let me know. I don't mean to duplicate. Sorry Megs.

no big deal but yeah the page megs started is really only St Lukes people.  At least that is how it began, but there are others like us who have had surgery at St Lukes/ Sacred Heart  But know other people who have had the surgery at other places and they end up getting to the page also.  You know how it is, once you have the surgery, you learn about all kinds of folks who did also that you never knew about.  Heck, I am learning about people I have know for a long time but never knew they had the surgery until just recently.  Weird. I know I recognize many of the names

Quite an interesting share. Actually I am also in need of quite a good technique that can help me increase the visitors on my blog. Someone has suggested the http://visiblefactors.com/facebook-ads-management-services/" rel="nofollow - facebook ads services but I am quite skeptical about the conversion rate. I wonder if anyone here can explain it to me.

Totally! It is going to be very helpful. I am also planning to opt for http://https://sungenebyte.com/" rel="nofollow - facebook ads services for promoting my blog there and for having people talk about my business on my page. This way I will be able to connect to my customers easily and will effectively take my business on top in the market.
