The effectivenes and security oissues depend on the size of the community and how well people know and trust each other. These solutions are great for smaller communities where this is already the case. For associations where people also come and go and like SUSANA where there are thousands of members i do not think this is appropriate. A mobile only chat should be part of the overall communications and knowledge sharing solution for the community that has both content and a web based solution. The whole idea of sharing knowledge needs such a solution. Chat threads are for quick, fast uncomplicated comms. Not knowledge sharing.

Hello everyone, On the social media issue, I suggest we go with telegram. This is because it can accommodate more members as against whatsapp which is limited in the maximum number of persons who can be on a group at a time! This is only if the leadership of SuSan A can confirm the number of members they are expecting to enroll in the group. However, if the number is less than 250, then I suggest we go for whatsapp and after which we can still migrate to telegram as the case may be!

It would be possible to take the RSS feed from this forum and automatically post with it to a Telegram group for those that prefer that to email updates.

There is for example this bot that could be used:  github.com/Rongronggg9/RSS-to-Telegram-Bot#using-the-public-bot
