Since posts are the intellectual property of the poster, technically, you'd need the poster's consent to reproduce it elsewhere. However, that wouldn't prohibit someone from using a brief quote or paraphrasing a little of it. Nor would it prevent citing facts in it.

That said, I'm not concerned with FB groups that want to be private. If I got into one that was up to no good, I'd just leave. I think the purpose of such a privacy rule might be to encourage people to join the group. Why join if you can see everything without joining? I don't know if that's the reasoning, but if it is, it would make sense to me.

Are you using a laptop computer or a desktop?

Or a laptop or tablet with a normal monitor and external keyboard?

I don't take snippets from this forum and post elsewhere either.  I encourage people to come here.  :cheers

Copy, no, not a good thing.

But you should be able to paraphrase and say "Over there they're saying ......."

However, most if not all groups have rules asking that posts not be shared outside the group.

When people are afraid to even paraphrase what got posted, that makes it secret in my book. We have a locked thread here to prove that.

It's not secret, it's a closed group (like most groups on Facebook now) to prevent the constant spamming. 

Anyone can join and many authors still have books in KU and other books/series are wide.  If someone does not want to be on Facebook, that's their choice. 

However, most if not all groups have rules asking that posts not be shared outside the group.

ETA: I'm not promoting one group over another, but in case anyone wants the link to see the B&N posts.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/556186621558858

There's more info in the Wide for the Win group on Facebook.

Not everyone has access to that. Or even wants to go there.

As someone exclusive to KU, I'm not even game to go in there.

I'm also suspicious of any group that needs to keep things secret within the group. That's what the mastermind groups in 2018 were doing before Amazon cracked down on their members.

Just saying.

I just thought of yet another possibility. Over the past year, Ingram dropped their fee for publishing books. That could have sent over a glut of new paperbacks/hardcovers that overwhelmed B&N from Ingram ??

That could have encouraged the low contents banned from Amazon to use them instead.
