Has any thought been given to starting a HPCA Facebook group?

HPCA Writers. It's a secret group.

Are there any security concerns to doing this? A possible wormhole or something?

I can't speak for 'private' groups, but I've progressively reduced my public info. I got fed up with friends -of- friends -of- friends trying to befriend me. No news-sites in common, no interests in common, no forums in common, nothing beyond bumping their friend counter...

I keep it only because using a 'Facebook' ID to comment on a googled site or blog is less untidy than leaving a zillion different IDs and pass-words scattered across the wwweb...

YMMV.

I don't facebook.

Besides, why bother with it when we have a perfectly good means of communication here?
