I have a concern regarding the use of Facebook, and similar social media sites, for communication within Asgardia.  I don't use it, and won't use it, because of security and privacy concerns.  I know I'm not by myself in my concerns.  This is in reference to comments in the 23 Jul 2017 Weekly Report, indicating that Civic.Asgardia's senior staff are using Facebook as Asgardia’s “… public ‘website.’”.   While I understand why it’s being done, I don’t think it’s a good idea.

In addition to the senior staff’s use of it, having a large Facebook community within Asgardia will, I'm afraid, lead to divisions within the population between Facebook users and non-Facebook users.  There may also be issues of security if official business is done using Facebook.

I thought so too myself. I noticed that there's a great danger in discussing topics especially regarding national security and defense, over a website such as Facebook. Especially since as of recently we've only just retified our constitution, it's important to note that we should have our website, secure, and discuss topics here. For off-topic and more general casual conversations, Facebook is Fine. But we need to start taking this very seriously.

I was also thinking at that but in an other way. If we would use this forum
as official medium then we would have to draw a line between facebook and
twitter and this forum, if you want to control the input and output. That is not
possible i think because both are already to much interacting. Therefor i was
thinking of setting up an other level (level 3) where people could come together
in a place aside the administration and do some sort of meetings with people
who have the knowledge and knowhow and people who are committed to Asgardia.

Grtz, Dirk.
