    Where is everybody?

    Advertisements



    Seems like this board has far fewer posts than in the past, when folks would post after every big block exam, etc. Has everyone mostly moved on to class-specific Facebook groups?

    VMD is on the wane, I think. They went offline for an extended period during the busiest time for posting (the Match), and I think that a lot of people just moved their comments and interactions to other fora (FB, etc.).

    I think other forms of social networking are taking over quite a bit. I think that my class was the first to use Facebook groups as a communication tool and since that time, the administration (to their credit) have been encouraging the upperclassmen to join the new classes' FB groups and answer questions there.

    I agree. I've been having trouble getting answers through valuemd in the recent year. I wish more people would stick around. Even though I just graduated, I'd still love to help future students as much as possible since I feel I had no guidance myself.
