The Effra FC must not die. From our highs of meetings with 10-20 people and Group exhibition things have sunk to a all time low for the EffraFC. What can we do the revitalise this once vibrant group?

I agree David, although I've enjoyed many 6-8 person pub meets so I don't think 10-20 needs to be a goal.

I keep forgetting to tag #effrafc on Instagram but that could help. Also it's probably time to move the group discussion to another platform (WhatsApp, Facebook, ...?). What with the Flickr phone app not doing discussions an'all.

(PS. What happened to the June and July meeting threads?)

I agree too. It might not be over for effra but maybe we need to rethink a bit. We all live a little more spread out too. Some post pics on FB, some on IG, some here.

I too will try to tag on IG. The new owners of flickr might not let it die. They might develop the app to include conversation, or someone else might come up with something cool?

We could plan an event/expo? Or we could arrange an evening to go through our fave images from the last X years using various platforms - not just flickr.

I know that J2L has had problems getting into his account which is common with the stupid yahoo sign in.

I have another idea. How about an Effra IG account? We could take it in turns to send photos to the person who is managing it. I could just set it up and see if people want in on it? If not, I'll just delete it.

Bob and I have been talking about an IG project with my friend Leonie but it hasn't gotten off the ground yet.

IG worth playing around with for the moment. I'm a big fan of Trello, too - might be useful for planning or even online exhibitions? The most obvious solution though is a Facebook group I think.

Great to see some ideas coming. I still think meeting up (if possible) is the lifeblood of EffraFC

I’m around for either/both.

As for Instagram, it’s one of the few social media things I never got around to, perhaps because it seemed too gimmicky. Let’s have a tutorial session next meet!
