    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.

    Where does one find listserves to join? Is it a requirement to join or be a member of a particular group before you can access a listserv? I am particularly interested in psychological testing.

    PsychMap is a good facebook group if you are interested in research methods.

    Division 5 of the APA has a testing division that might be useful. Division 12's Assessment section might be appropriate to consider, although I'm not sure if it has its own listserv or how active it is. It depends what type of testing you are looking to see discussed as well...

    I feel like the Psychological Methods Discussion group is kind of the admin ranting about his personal pet peeves all the time, and it disappoints me.

    Said No School Psychologist Ever is great for school psych specific stuff.

    Yeh, I muted it because I got tired of that one man show in the other methods group. I enjoy psychmap though. There is some interesting discussion and formulation of a letter about the perspectives issue with all the self citation.

    I think they come across your pathway when you have shared interests, from colleagues, and supervisors.
