This week I’m hoping to pick your brains! The Grey Pride team are eager to ensure this community site is somewhere people choose to come and share their views and life experiences, we want to celebrate the positive aspects of getting older as well as discuss ways to tackle the difficulties and problems some people face as they age.
We want the site to be as user-friendly and interactive as possible, and so I’m hoping you will share your ideas on how we could improve www.greypride.org.uk.
The community site has been up and running since the launch of the campaign for a Minister for Older People, but over the course of the last 20 months we have discussed a range of issues far broader than simply politics. Many members have really interesting skills, hobbies and careers, and so one of the ideas suggested has been to look at ways to allow people to find others that want to discuss these topics with them, perhaps by introducing “groups” for certain themes such as Art, Photography, Music and Dance, Gardening…how would people feel about this?
Which features of this site do you most enjoy and are there any you don’t really use? For example, do you prefer the discussion forum or to share your photos? I’ve noticed very few people list events in the shared calendar – would you like to know more about what is going on near you?
We’d love to hear about what other social websites you use and why you enjoy visiting those websites, many people use Facebook because it connects them with their close family and friends – what could we do here to encourage your friends and family to join up…or are you pleased they aren’t members?
Please share your thoughts, all views are welcome!
