In an effort to bring our community together, even more, we have our own secret and completely private Facebook Group.
What is a private Facebook Group?
This means that unless you’re a member of this group, you can not see any posts, who is or isn’t a part of this group, or see that the group itself even exists. Joining this group, or posts that are made in the group do not appear on your news feed to anyone who is not already a member. We recognize how important your privacy and confidentiality are as you begin to address these issues and as you make connections with others in the North Star community.
It’s also important to note that while we have a variety of email discussion groups for different demographics within our community, the Facebook group is similar to our message board in that we only have one for the entire North Star community. Men, women, spouses, family members and friends are all in the same group together. Thus, we ask that everyone in the group be mindful to keep conversation threads appropriate to our broader community interests and focus more demographic-appropriate conversations in the respective email discussion groups.
How to join:
Because there are such stringent privacy measures taken into account, one can not simply ask to join this group. They must be invited by someone that is already a member, then approved by one of our Moderators after agreeing to the membership rules, which are in-place to protect you, and others as well as ensuring a peaceful, positive atmosphere.
Requirement: Given the personal nature of Facebook and the amount of vulnerability involved, to join this group it is required that you use your real name, not use pseudonyms or nick names as is allowed in our Discussion Groups or Message Boards.
