Behind the Agora: the FB group

Web 2.0 has been really useful for Agora Alicante. Apart from some details that may be unveiled in some years after some rakija shots, I have to admit one thing... I have become addicted to the Facebook group that we decided to create to release the work mailing lists from spam.

What goes on the Mailing Lists? Organizative stuff, meeting dates, results of phone calls, discussions on serious numbers, problems, news,... We have around 13 different lists, and they are all busy.

Then we have the FB group for everything else. Depending on the day, it can be used for sharing photos, for discussing the colour of tshirst, to make fun of ourselves, to clap achievements, to share really bad jokes or stupid videos from youtube, to share a song, to upload pictures, to unveil secrets, to gossip, to be gossiped about,... in 1h you can have 250 comments, depending how many people and what is the topic about. Just now, in less than 1 hour from 01:00 to 02:00 am we have had more than 130 messages.

Of course nothing is perfect. Side effects of the group are lack of sleep, anxiety when you cannot be connected. I am suffering from stress as I know I am missing maybe something hilarious just to write this post!

One thing is for sure, organizing an Agora would be much harder and not even half the fun without a team like we have... and the Fb group allows us to stay in touch and share the best of us at any time of the day! No matter if we are in Alicante, Murcia, Elche, Reading, Oviedo, Coruña or Madrid, or Las Palmas, or Bolonia, or Pavia or Morocco or Zaragoza.
