    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Now that WebMD has jumped on the Facebook bandwagon (ugh), who is going to be leaving here and exclusively using that? Just curious.

    I think it would still be valuable to come here because of more space to post. It would be sad if this community were to disappear. But I know a lot of you just love Facebook, so I'm wondering.

    Holy Shi-itz NO! I'm with Sharon on that. Just because I spill my guts, my diet and my real weight here, there's NO WAY I'm sharing that with everyone on Facebook!

    If you check out the top of this community, you will see

    "WebMD is on FacebookJoin us here and become part of the conversation."


    Anyway, it seems like a lot of websites/radio shows/stores/communities now are on Facebook. So that's what I meant.

    I'm with everyone else. I know this is a public board, but it feels more private than FB.
