Procrastinators Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from chronic procrastination.
Procrastinators Anonymous is on Facebook now
I just created a page for Procrastinators Anonymous on Facebook. There's nothing on there yet - I only created it about 5 minutes ago. But you can go over there and "Like" it if you want, and write on the wall. Here's the link:

I just clicked "like" for the FB page
It seems a bit active, so I clicked Like.
added the NPR interview to the FB page
I added a link to the NPR interview I did with Piers Steel to the Facebook page for Procrastinators Anonymous. I think that's a good place to post links to stuff like that, rather than here. Please click "Like" on our Facebook page!
Facebook vs 'here'
I don't know if that is a better place to post stuff like that, Facebook is not anonymous anymore. And posting on facebook might even make it easier to link anonymous accounts here to real life facebook accounts too for some people.
I like the facebook idea though, as it is easier to find for most people!
I think the whole point of Facebook is to not be anonymous so I don't think it is in line with an anonymous group like this. There is absolutely nothing on there that is really "private" as it's well known for its incremental violations of users' privacy ... I won't be posting on there, that's for sure. Our issues are too personal and serious to be publicized on Facebook in my opinion.
I think it would be better to have the PA site linked to all of the more well-known Anonymous groups. I found out about PA though from a link on Arts Anonymous website.
Facebook more for listening than sharing
What I had in mind for Facebook was that I would share links and encouraging quotes with people, not that people would be doing any deep sharing on Facebook. That, of course, needs to be anonymous and is only for this site.
Also, it's a good way to let others know that this site and fellowship even exists.
anonymity and facebook
I cannot comment on Facebook, because I've never had a Facebook account. And I have no intentions of getting one. That's my personal choice, and I don't wish to discuss it.
I can read non-private Facebook pages, but I don't post on them.
I do understand that many people want/need to be on Facebook for family and professional reasons, and I respect that.
I made a PA post ... a suggestion that PA members select an anonymous username for PA -- a unique identity that is not connected with the rest of their online life.
If this is something you want to do, you don't have to get a new PA account.
There is a way to change your existing PA account.
PA on Facebook
That's true - it's not anonymous. But there's no way to link what you say here to Facebook.
I created the page because Piers Steel, author of "The Procrastination Equation", has a FB page and he wrote that this group was the only one he strongly recommended. I think his is the best procrastination book, so I created a FB page to say that.
Maybe people will find this site through Facebook, but maybe not - there are many fake PA pages on Facebook. The only way that will happen is if many people "Like" the real page so it can be identified as real.
there is a fake PA page on FB
Unfortunately, there is a fake Procrastinators Anonymous page on Facebook, in addition to the real one that I just created. I reported the fake one to Facebook as a trademark violation.
more than one!
Actually, there are a zillion of them. Forget it. I'm not going to worry about them.
