Where's Everyone?

Hey, where did everyone go? All the members who used to post aren't posting anymore. Is everyone using the Facebook group, or has everyone moved along?

I wish more people posted here! I was told about the Facebook group but want to keep my BA journey private.

I agree! I bit the bullet and joined the FB group anyway. I'm just not posting boobie pics on there.

Does anyone know if they are trying to do away with the board entirely and get everyone on Facebook? This board is an amazing find for me. I've learned so much even from old posts and a lovely poster named Linaki. It's a shame there's not more activity.

It was a Godsend to me my first time around 2 years ago. SO MANY ladies offered support back then. I don't like the Facebook group as much.

Yeah it looks like this forum used to be the place to be. Maybe if those of us who prefer the board post a lot we'll get more ladies to join?

I didn't even know there was a FB group - I just did a quick search of groups under "Just Breast Implants" and didn't see anything. What's it called?

i dont think the board will be going away. Everthing just seems to be gravitating towards social media outlets more.

for me, its harder to share pics here than it is on FB. you cant post nudes on here, not even nipples being blurred out. everything has to be clothed. I have all my albums set to private and members have to FR me to see them. Im not as trusting on here to share them as i am on FB. at least on FB i can see someones profile, actual pic, real name, "know" the person. it sounds weird but i feel better sharing pics over on the FB page than i do here. on here, anyone can say who they are. on FB, you can actually see who is who. granted, people can be fake and pretend, but its not hidden. being a mod on the FB page, we try to weed out the "bad apples" the best we can.

Ohh I totally get that about photos. I'm not sure if I'll be posting any anywhere because nudity isn't something I'm super comfortable with. As much as I'd love to help other women, I'm shy about my own body. I've even worried about my physical before and after photos from the surgeon getting in the wrong hands. I'm not sure where I'll keep them. I prefer not being featured in the before and after gallery online too. They need my permission to do so, right?

Anyway, I'm glad the board is here to stay . I hope we can get more people on here somehow.

I didnít know there was a Facebook group. Iím disappointed more people arenít active here. I know when I first joined 10 years ago (different profile name but, I couldnít log in under my original one Camdoo) there was much more activity and support. I guess I will see about joining the FB group but, I also donít like all my friends and family knowing my business. Even though everyone knows my breasts were paid for

I also was under a different name, Musclelady, and couldn't log into my old account. I just found out about the Fb group a month ago by accident. I saw someone here mention it. The Fb group is private, you have to ask to join, and only members can see your posts. I'm still uneasy about pics on there, though. Not sure why, but I feel more comfortable here.

I was wondering this myself!! I just logged on for the first time in probably 3 or 4 years yesterday. This board was so helpful when I had my BA back in early 2014. Considering a revision so I thought Iíd log on. I canít believe how little activity there is compared to the ďoldĒ days. Iím not sure I feel comfortable joining a Facebook group. Wouldnít all my friends be able to see that Iím part of the group? Is there a way to keep that info private from my FB friends??

Welcome back! It's a private group so no one would be able to see that you are a member or what you post there. We have over 2100 members there, even some of the JBI oldies are there

The forum isn't going anywhere. There are just too many women that love the anonymity that JBI has to offer that you just can't get anywhere else. Here, you have the option of setting your albums to public or private - I keep my albums here set to private. Yes, your surgeon would need you to sign a form allowing them to use your before and after pictures on their site.

Hey ladies!

I havenít been on in a while. I use to be home and on meds with all my boobie post op issues so I was on a lot. My last surgery was last October for a slight bottoming out revision. I go in tomorrow for a follow-up. Iím going to talk to my surgeon about my nipple placement. The one nipple just doesnít want to drift up when the implant is settling. Iím hoping he can lift it up. However, if the risk is too high than I might just leave it. If he says no to lifting it than I may get a second opinion. I donít know. Iím going to post pics. I have pics posted from my first surgery two years ago May. I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.

Wonderful! I'm glad I'm not the only one who loves the anonymity. It's nice you can share as much as you're comfortable with on this forum. I'm not sure if I'll put up an album yet, but I know I'd rather have pics here than allow a surgeon to use my photos. I like being in control of exactly what's shown and the fact you have to create an account to see them. I'm curious if there are surgery discounts for allowing use of photos. I get that B&A shots are so helpful to a surgeon and potential patients. It just feels safer declining to me.
