Right now people who use the Old Facebook groups and up in arms about messages not being sent out to their members. This has been going on now for 3 weeks and there has been no help or comments from Facebook on this major issue despite numerous emails and phone calls.
This issue is affecting millions of members and admins of the old groups. Facebook members use the old groups for everything from Mafia Wars Families and other games groups to just regular topic groups.
There have been rumors on the site that the old groups are going to be migrated to the new groups and that Facebook will be starting this on March 24th but these rumors have not been confirmed but they also have not been denied by Facebook who is not commenting on this.
If they are thinking of migrating the old groups into new groups this will be a major headache for the admins and members of them. The new groups have strict limitations on them and dont offer the same features the old groups do.
The new groups are limited to 250 members, do not have a discussion tab ( they use a feature called Docs for this ), you cannot message all members with valuable information related to the group, anyone can be added to a new group without their consent, members of the new groups will automatically receive emails of all posts and comments that are made and these are just a few of the drawbacks.
The old group admins and their members do not want this. They want to be able to communicate and have the ability to control their group.
The Facebook help center is pretty much useless unless you really know how to dig for information. But I have found some for all admins to use to complain to Facebook and try to get action.
This what the help center has on messages not being sent to members.
