PBS on Facebook

One certainly doesn't have to be on Facebook, but as Dennis pointed out, if 
anyone on Facebook lists a club or society as one of their activities, if 
no Facebook page already exists for that club then one is automatically 
created.  I think any officer of the society can take over ownership of 
that page, once it is created.  The PBS webmaster might want to look into 

Some groups are intentionally created.  There is a small but very active 
group for Haemanthus on Facebook, for instance.  It has caught on while an 
older Yahoo Group for Haemanthus is barely alive.

I personally prefer e-mail lists like PBS, but we tend to go where things 
are working best.  The Haemanthus group on Facebook works particularly 
well, it seems.  So I am finding room for both, just as I finally joined 
the SRGC Forum.
