For a long time, our little practice group has used YahooGroups to organize our mailing list and some other things. No longer. To give a sense of how dismal this application has become, consider this discussion on another Yahoo platform, YahooAnswers:http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index ... 758AASpBL2
We've had nothing but trouble with it in recent months, so we're attempting a transition to a different platform called BigTent. If you're interested in seeing what this is like, look at this:https://www.bigtent.com/groups/dctendai
I don't know yet if this is a better solution, but I am confident it can't be any worse than YahooGroups has become.
I bring all this up because I know that many Buddhist groups use some kind of social media tools to organize themselves, and YahooGroups has been one such tool. (Meetup was another, but it's dying on the vine, and besides, you have to pay for it.) I'm interested in knowing what people are doing, how it works, and what alternatives may be present.
Thanks to the help of generous sponsors (most of them from DharmaWheel), I'm doing a Vajra Armor (Dorje Kotrab) self-retreat this summer. May the merit be yours!
