    I've tried a few over the years, but they've mostly been garbage. I'd look into joining specific listerves.

    Some of my colleagues I've friended on Facebook have interesting professional connections, and their posts occasionally turn into mini-forums. You could try friending a few well connected psychologists. Better than interacting with randos in a Facebook group IMO.

    In general, though, I agree that listservs are a better way to go.

    Does anyone have issues with the daily ABCT listserve? I can sometimes read the messages but it's often complete gibberish.

    Example portion of yesterday's email: "qmTWlwLp6HPuRPotcuD3/f4DT61BMNjDioONhi+QiYXG6HVNv2snHnRg0XPdWGklTDinVSqQ6nxp"
    It's pages and pages of this - does anyone else have this problem?

    I recently started a FB group for folks in private practice (Psychologists in Private Practice):
    Log into Facebook | Facebook

    It's a bit quiet as a new and small group, but insurance, fees, ethical issues, and marketing have been brought up so far. It's a good way for folks who constantly have private practice questions to get questions answered fairly quickly without posting new threads in SDN, so I hope some private practitioners in here will find it helpful!

    I used to have the issue when I used gmail for the listserv. It seems that the ABCT listserv is designed for Outlook. When I started using my work email (which is on Outlook) it works great.

    I'm not on FB and I don't really think that its the most effective way to interact about professional topics. Though I understand why its so popular. Email listservs seem to do everything I need. I am part of a few ranging from academic to practice and I have them moved directly to a separate folder so they don't clutter my inbox. I check them whenever I get the urge.
