I never like it much when I have to admit I am wrong, but I am man enough to do so. Today, I admit I am wrong about blowing off the warnings I received from people with experience running Facebook group pages.
I was warned to put in controls or else the group would get out of hand. I rejected these warnings because I did not want to lay down laws, etc.
The good news is the Team DML Group on Facebook has real legs. Over 20,000 people have registered in just 3 days, with a total of 275,000 posts, comments and reactions. Thus, the problem arises.
People are going insane with the amount of Team DML posts appearing in their feeds. Some of the stuff is complete nonsense, while other stuff doesn’t fit into the goals we have for the page. Therefore, I apologize to those folks who warned my deaf ears.
If you are part of the Team DML group, I ask you to read what I posted and pinned at the top of the page this morning. Here it is:
A MUST READ BEFORE USING THIS GROUP PAGE.
The Team DML Group has 4 goals.
(1) To be the alert station for Team DML citizen activists to make calls and take action, e.g. to fight a bill, help a vet, expose corruption in local and national government, to call out a news network for fake news, etc.
(2) To host your conversations without fear of being attacked by a troll, and to strategize ways to help the Make America Great Again Movement.
(3) To help DML News build our next phase of news delivery which relies heavily on the general public to take a major role (more to come on that in 2018).
(4) To find leaders within this group that can play a bigger role with us as we grow. For example, we plan on creating state chapters in the ladder part of next year. Also, Miss Mary is working on forming two retreat weekends. One is very high end with limited seating, the other will be more like a national convention. This is where we will seek volunteers, team members, vendors, etc.
HERE IS WHAT THIS GROUP PAGE IS NOT…
(A) A depot for every MEME on Facebook. Doesn’t matter if it is pro-Trump or anti-Hillary, although MEMEs are often funny, cool, and creative, this is not the place for them to breed share counts.
(B) A link posting platform to articles on other websites, some of which I’ve never heard of. If you have news to share, go to DMLNews.com and click the submit news button so we can put it through our filters. It it’s real news and worthy of widespread distribution, we will cover it. Right now, I see people posting links to other websites offering stories which we covered days earlier. In some case, people are posting links to websites that have a history of publishing fake news.
(C) Although I absolutely love the family photos, not everyone else does. Furthermore, it could cause a critical post to be overlooked. And so this is not the place for the photo sharing. That said, our websites get 10-15M page views per month. If you have a photo to share, e.g. your son or daughter is serving in the military, please send it to [email protected] knowing that I will post it on my daily response to emails I receive. Your loved ones are important to me, and I want / love community. They will get far more exposure being on my websites than they will be posted here. That said, I do find it fun to share photos, so I will designate a post on the weekends for people to share family photos etc. We’ll start next weekend.
(D) This is not a PR hub for other people who post LIVE videos and rants. If you find someone with talent, and think their message is awesome, then send it to us via the submit news link on DML News. We will take a look.
(E) I have changed the settings for posts to be approved by admin. I know everyone wants to say Merry Christmas, and next week it will be happy New Year. But perhaps we can have just one Merry Christmas post and everyone share their comments underneath. Otherwise people will be getting 20k alerts, and that’s no fun.
PLEASE NOTE: I did not want to make a set of rules for this page, and I love to see the activity and excitement, but after 3-days I have been begged by so many people to put some controls in place. We all want this to succeed. I will discuss this more on the 26th when The Truth airs LIVE at 11am ET on Facebook.com/DMLdaily
REMINDER: I will be LIVE this evening at 6pm for a Christmas program. It will air on my main page (link below).
NOTE: If you do not have the DML APP downloaded, you really should if you’re a part of this group. Otherwise, you’re probably missing out on the short and long term opportunity we offer. If nothing else, you’ll get your news better and faster than you are without it.
Thanks so much. — DML
