If there is a either a general whatsapp group or one for different cities, it could help create a more tight knit community, facilitate meet ups, etc.

Second that.

Alright guys, I created a WSO group for the NYC based real estate community. Go to this invite link to add yourselves in. Feel free to share this link as when more people in NY join the more valuable it is for the entire group. https://chat.whatsapp.com/GUTP0SwXzwT8okYe3ll59c
I think it will be better for others to create different groups for different cities. Because if a general WSO group is created, then there would be too many people in the group and often in my experience that dilutes conversations and it can be hard to follow conversations in chatrooms. Plus, we always have this forum for general queries. My intention with the whatsapp group was to help facilitate deeper relationships, network with the local real estate community, set up meetups, happy hours, etc.

I don't have WhatsApp, so take this with a grain of salt, but wouldn't we be better off using GroupMe so that no one has to have their numbers out in the open? My impression of WhatsApp is that you need to provide and have your number shown, whereas with GroupMe you can just have your account shown which is linked to your phone number.

You guys should use slack and make a separate channel for each city

The link to WSO's nation wide slack group is below.

WSO CRE Slack Group (Link)

If you are new to slack (which I am), use #yourcityname (#Dallas,#NewYorkCity,#Toronto) #yourstatename (e.g. #Texas, #California, #New York).

Is there anyone with experience with Slack who can explain how we should best utilize this to broadcast news to the larger group as well as subgroups (e.g. city level, regional level, etc).

PS - Banana this comment so future users can find this post easily.

Hey,

Slack is available as an iPhone App and allows anyone to jump between channels which is an advantage over WhatsAPP.

I have created the Miami Channel.

See you all there,

Jan 26, 2019

Did you create it inside the WSO Slack that Duke created? I don't see it...
