Facebook Groups: Click and Join, But What Next? [washingtonpost.com]
Click click click. It was so simple to join.

And . . . now what? Are we done? Was clicking an end unto itself? Do our Facebook groups -- which are today often treated as the official barometer for a cause's importance; more members must signify more gravitas -- ever translate into significant change?

(And if not, what are we doing there?)

I admit to having joined one or two, in the beginning, but no longer. Unless there's actually something behind the group, I see little point.

I'll have to agree that I don't see the point of a lot of these groups on FB. Unless the group holds regular events and makes good use of the event calendar I find it easy to lose track.

The trend at FB seems to be moving away from Groups toward Fan Pages. Somehow this comes across as even less participatory to me.
