Alex, I've never gotten to excited about Groups on flickr - could you please explain what you like about them?

Alex Kehr

Well, recently I have started to like groups. I have started liking them because they help you get more views and more views leads to more comments. I love getting feedback which is why I love comments.

If you are the 'leader' of a group it is also fun to check and see how many members and new postings your group has.

It is also a great way for users to interact with eachother and make the website feel more like a 'community'.

yes moderated.
it just helps people find other people who are into the same things,
also groups can be countries/ cities/ events

they are GOOD.

ok, we have something in the works that's similar... personally I just don't like groups, so what we're doing is different, but should fulfill some of the same goals.

If you ever make something like groups, I think you should call them "Channels".

Oh, please, while you're at it, make sure the channels have RSS feeds, yes? Pretty please?

On flickr, i like the 'forum' aspects of groups - discussions.

Wow, that's cool how 2 years ago I suggested Channels and now they are being done. That is why I feel Vimeo is so wondrous... somebody actually looks at your suggestions.

I was just noticing that. It's amazing that not only did it happen, but the same topic stayed alive for two years about it.
