I got this email earlier this morning notifying me that the flickr group I belonged to on Facebook had changed its name and become a group for a site that hosted flash games.
In essence the group was hijacked.
This got me thinking about some questions:
- What value is this group which is made up fo people with very different to flash games going to have to the flash game company?
- Why did the change happen?
- Do admins really ‘own’ a group?
I’ve terminated my group membership and moved on to this group, I imagine that others will follow.
