SURVEY: Interested in Expanding Our Online Community?
(To take the survey, just click on the link at the bottom of this post.)
With separation and social distancing due to the pandemic, many people feel alone. It’s become more difficult to connect with others. One idea we are considering is creating an online community so we can stay in closer contact.
We created an online survey to determine if there is interest in expanding our online community by creating a new webpage, or creating an online forum. It would take work to create and maintain either of these communities, so we’d like to know in advance if there’s enough interest.
Descriptions of these two options are:
Share Page on Website
A new page on our website called Share would feature content that our church family provides. Content could include ideas for fun family activities, recipes, encouraging messages, requests for assistance, and other topics. You would submit content to be posted on the webpage. There is not an opportunity to comment on posts. The public could see all content.
An Online Forum
The online forum would be provided via a free platform called Proboards. Each person would create a user name and password. The forum would enable us to create “threads” (topics) for whatever you wanted to discuss or share. You would post your own content and you could add comments to other posts that others make. You could embed videos and photos. The forum would not be accessible to the public.
Please let us know if you have any interest by taking the brief survey. We are fine with whatever is decided. To take the survey, just click on the link below:
