The Solent OGA has launched the ‘Solent Gaffers’ Facebook group. This can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/solentgaffers/
The ’Solent Gaffers’ group is intended to encourage discussion of all things related to both gaff and the Solent. Join the group to find out what people are talking about in your area. Then contribute in whatever way you choose.
Please note that this is a public group, allowing anyone on Facebook to post and view content, not just OGA members. While it is administered by members of the Solent OGA, content is not generally vetted by them.
There is also a new 'Solent OGA’ Facebook page, which can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/Solent-OGA-1561224850855008/. This page will receive updates whenever anything new is posted to the Solent OGA website. At the moment the process is manual, but will hopefully be automated eventually. ‘Like’ the page to receive Facebook notifications of changes to the Solent OGA website.
Facebook is inherently a noisy place to be. However it is possible to get past the videos of cats and use it as a powerful news collection service. Initially both of these resources are set to be as freely available as possible. We shall review this, if there is excessive irrelevant, or inappropriate use. We have the ability to delete posts and block specific users, if required.
Further developments will follow, depending on your feedback. Let us know what you think on Facebook, or in the comments section below.
