    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

Had some problems with friending someone who decided to friend my friends - and she didn't even know them - CREEPY! and another that each time he sent a message, his clothes came off more and more! Delete! So, post there, But DO NOT FRIEND - just to be safe. TiP!!!!

    Dear Anon, Hi, I'm the moderator of that page. I've been very strict about spam so that it will only be used to find support on FB. However, there are other newer pages which have attempted to use the fans list to sell juice or Tshirts or lots of other things. It can happen on any public FB page. I guess a page that big is pretty irresisable to them. They use "friending" as a method of networking.

    I personally know of hundreds of people who have made good friends there, creating their own smaller circles. Most members are real people but, yes, there are schemers every where. Even in here - posers trying to use patients' info.

    Please feel free to email me if you have a problem. kelly

    Yes, I have made several friends there and Kelly does a great job moderating her FB page and her page! Lots of support and info on both. You can set up your privacy to avoid anyone befriending your friends as well as they should set theirs as well....Rosie
