As a member of a 700+ community on facebook that started in August (thriving, but sorry, invitation only), I observed and several active members voiced concern about losing track of discussion threads, and other obstacles to getting things done within a facebook group. Booo!
As a daily user of Confluence I believe if members could share their facebook history download (a recent feature, a few MB zipped), that is, apply a filter for their group postings and import their contributions to a personal space, it would provide a fine scaffolding for pioneers and early adopters. Yaaay!
Reconstructing facebook threads from available personal imports would be just - awesome. Could it make Confluence a desirable upgrade to groups on facebook that look for better collaboration tools?
Background: The group in focus added a forum and a DokuWiki, both of which are not really being embraced, mainly because it is yet another log in, and because transfer and sync of conversations is a painful manual process. I figure Confluence would make collaboration quicker.
I was investigating this request, but it seems Confluence does't have this implemented. I can suggest you to open a feature request so we can verify if this would be feasible in the future. :)
How to create a feature request.
I hope this helps!
