Brecon U3A Facebook Group Help

The Brecon U3A Facebook group has been set up by the committee to enable members to keep in touch, begin conversations, ask questions, make comments, etc.,

The group and conversations are entirely private and can only be seen by members of the group.
Only members of the Brecon U3A can join and once you have applied to join your details will be checked by the Brecon U3A Membership Secretary.

Inappropriate posts will be deleted by the moderators of the group.

Your email will be needed when making an application to join. For those members who share emails with partners, wives, husbands, etc. you may need to share membership. Of course all members are welcome to join however, if you do need a separate membership you should inform the Brecon U3A Membership Secretary before hand so that your application can be confirmed as genuine,

One member who has joined who didn’t initially have a Facebook account wrote:

For somebody without a prior Facebook account, the steps were:
- click on the "join group" button on the invite email from Facebook (NB in gmail, the email is in the "social" tab of the inbox, may be different for other email service providers). This gets to Facebook itself;
- choose option to register a Facebook account - enter name, address, DoB (can be fake!) and think of a Facebook password;
- log out of Facebook and return to the invite email;
- click invite to "join group" again and, this time, log in to Facebook account;
- you get placed on the Brecon U3A page - find a "join group" button to finally ask to join - I think that generated something for the moderators, to accept the new member into the group.

People with Facebook accounts already just miss out the first 3 bullet points above.

Don’t panic, its fairly straight forward.
