Some tips …

  • You will need to be a member of Facebook and request to join to see the content in a “Facebook Group” – just click the +Join Group button under the group banner.
  • You can read a “Facebook Page” without being a Facebook member but Facebook will pester you to join. (you can click “not now” under the pester message and then try to ignore the annoying join-up banner underneath)
  • You can read a Twitter feed without being a member of Twitter.
  • Being a member of a social media site and “following” the group/page/feed means you will get notifications of new posts and can usually comment and discuss.
  • If you don’t want to join a social media site like facebook you can subscribe to the website by providing an email address in the “Subscribe by Email” box on the home page and accepting the terms.
