Thank you to all who responded to our survey! We are beginning to implement some changes, in part based on that feedback. Our users are fairly split on preference to use FB or the HN website directly, so we are doing what we can to make both available and useful. I also heard from several people that they didn't want to have to remember passwords here on the site. There was a request for the Trading Post to be up and running as well as Restaurant Reviews. So, to address these issues....
Facebook Connect is working again on the site - you can link your Huntley Neighbors account with Facebook and use that to log in.
Huntley Neighbors Discussions - there is now a group on Facebook for discussions. Threads from here will be posted by feed over there. You can choose to comment here on the site as always, or comment in the FB group. You can also start new topics in either place. There will be a feed of the most recent topics from the group in the right column of HN's main page. Note that comments from one location will not transfer to the other. Also note that per Facebook rules, all posts from this feed posted in the group will be under my personal Facebook profile (Facebook currently only allows group posts to be made by individuals).
Huntley Neighbors Trading Post - is open again here on the site and we have gone back to using a forum, so it is on the main page and shows up in new posts, as well as the most recent in the left column. There is also a group on Facebook now where listings from here will show. You can post them directly to the Facebook group, but those will not appear on HN. If you post them on HN, the listing will appear in both places.
Huntley Neighbors Facebook Page - the page itself is not new, but is being reconfigured. The posts from the site will no longer be posted on the page (these are going to the Discussions group). The page will now be used for shared items from the web and community Facebook pages. You will also soon be able to find other links (in tabs and on the left side) on our Facebook page - Restaurant Reviews, Events, Pinterest, Huntley Neighbors Sponsors, Community Links. *Note that the feed of posts from here will go to both the group and the page for a few days to allow for transition.
So what do you need to do? Here is what you should follow depending on what information you want:
