Phantom FB group!

I continue to have problems with FB group which cannot be found in any combination of the search words! Students who joined the group within days of its development were able to find it, but ever since then, it has miraculously disappeared. Even I cannot find it anymore if I search for it through my personal FB account. Unfortunately, not being able to locate the page and join the group hinders online communication.

As far as the class goes, students continue to work on their group projects and some of them are quite ambitious (regardless of my advice to stay “small” and “local”). Either way, students seem to be engaged and invested in their group projects. At the end of the semester, students will showcase their projects in class and complete project assessment reports. Groups are also encouraged to share their projects on a web 2.0 platform such as YouTube, FB, Blogger, etc. where they can comment on each other’s projects.

  1. Wow. This one is a puzzler.

    Is that the group we have a link to on the blog? If it is, maybe they could access it through us.

  2. It seems somehow the group has been "hidden" and then you were removed as a member. "Leave group" is a little too easy to do and if you did so then ownership of the group would probably revert to the next member on the list. I would just start a new group. Otherwise, you can get the web address from a student who can get in and see if you can re-join, then make the group "public".

  5. You and Marsha are listed as the Administrators for the group. You can follow the link above or on our page to find it, or on your FB page on the left hand side, it should be there under Groups. If not, click "more". Then you should see it all groups. Once inside the group click "settings" and choose "always show".

  6. This is a real puzzle?! In the past, I have e-mailed the link to my students but it only took them to FB, not the group page. Thank you for the link, it seems to work :)We'll try again.
