|body||"Exactly. I've been saying this for a while too. For example, I'm an active member (somewhat less now) in a FB group called 'Choose Yourself'. It was started by a writer-enterpreneur, James Altucher. That was how I initially siphoned off my friends from there to here....for example, infovore, kaylinart, ericvancewalton, and others were all members of that group. I wrote about Steemit in that group sharing my experiences here with them which convinced them to come here. Many came directly from that group because they are mostly self-starters, entrepreneur types. If I could announce that we have started a Choose Yourself Group in Steemit, then they could ALL come over here. There are maybe 6,000 members, or more. As it stands right now though, many don't have a good feeling about Steemit due to some issues, that used to be worse than they are now. But their is real lacking in cohesion with the way it's just individuals. It's simply not as fun as a group thing. Groups bring people, and they are way more fun. YES TO GROUPS.|
Perhaps the best part of this scenario is that if there were a Choose Yourself Group within Steemit, then maybe James Altucher (who has some serious connections to big name entrepreneurs like Gary Vaynerchuk (sp?) would come here as well. I'm Facebook friends with James and I asked him directly to come visit Steemit. He didn't seem too interested at the time. He's busy and has a very successful blog already. But if we started a group in here that is his fan group, he might drop by to see what's up. This could be really powerful. YES TO GROUPS"
