Until recently, for the past few months, the ASMR Group on Facebook was the main place for everything ASMR-related.
The ASMR Research& Support website was started in June with the forums becoming active in late July.
I’ve gone to great pains this month to move all the active forums on Facebook and SoS, or Society of Sensationalists to the new forums, either merging them with existing threads or starting new ones. This was at the request of Envelope, or Jenn, who needed help with things.
Ryan, the creator of the Yahoo Group, has given us permission to do so. But whether he decides to keep the group going is up to him seeing as he started it back in 2008.
In truth it wasn’t that hard. Just a bit of copy and pasting. But I was glad when it was over!
Soon the current FB discussion forums will be locked down or completely deleted, with a redirecting URL put in place for each thread. This will direct you to the new version of the thread over on the official ASMR site. Why we’re doing this is to get all of the community in one place, and to encourage participation on these forums, which is seeing more registering, but not much active posting apart from a few people. But it’s getting better.
The Facebook page along with the wall will remain, but any future discussions and so on will take place at ASMR R&S.
