No thanks. I’d rather poke myself in the eye with a sharp stick.
People, just cuz you know three gurus “crushin’ it” with their gigantic “free” Facebook groups doesn’t mean you will.
Facebook groups are played out. Yes, they worked well for a few years, but that ship has sailed. Too many of ’em now. Too spammy. Too noisy. Too many hidden agendas. Everyone’s over it.
Plus, your time’s better spent elbow-deep in that thing only you can do.
Plus, Facebook’s greedy AF lately. “Free” is apparently Swahili for “F*ck you pay me.”
Plus, building something on a platform you don’t own, control, and can’t sell one day? Makes zero sense. Like a sh*t shoveler with a weak stomach.
Plus, you really wanna build your “tribe” (God I hate that word!) only to have your closest competitors spray ’em with sidebar ads for their products and services? C’mon, man. Use your head.
In conclusion: free Facebook groups are the worst. Don’t start ’em, don’t join ’em, just stay far far away.
