Will there be fan pages for societies?
I wish the full text of a posting would come out in those email notifications from GenealogyWise, as they do in Facebook. This gives you an idea if you must respond immediately, or it you just want to get through the rest of your email before opening up your web browser. -- The email notices we're getting now are of little or no value to me. (Yes, I've learned to have Outlook auto-place them in a specific folder so my mail inbox isn't so cluttered.)
In other words, GenealogyWise, this isn't about page hits, this is about social networking.
If you happen to get a lot of page hits, then so much the better.
Remember that another large genealogy website has been attempting for years to overcome the reputation about being too focused on the numbers.
If you build it -- they will come.
Build it right.
I'd like to see the groups organized into categories by surname, locale, society, websites, etc. I can already see that having to scroll through the groups to find something applicable to me is going to quickly become very overwhelming.
I wish GenealogyWise could offer free seminars or courses. Set times where members could come learn about methodology, research techniques, about specific sources, organization, certain periods of history and how these periods in history can affect research. Anyone could set up these seminars and courses and anyone could join in the free class and all they would have to do is show up at the time the seminar/class was scheduled.
