GROUP ME 3.0

GroupMe is the easiest way to start conversations and keep in touch with your real life network. GroupMe works well for youth advocate networks, educators, and area team leaders. Today they released 3.0 with new features.

Questions (Beta)

“Today, we’re releasing a new kind of conversation you can start on GroupMe. It’s as simple as asking a question. Use it to plan a real-life meetup, chat about something with your friends in real time, or whatever else you want! You can direct your question to just a few people, an entire group, or everyone you know. You can even broadcast it to Twitter or Facebook and let the world respond.”

Direct Messages

“Now, you can send a message to another GroupMe user, because sometimes, you don’t need to say it to the whole group. 
Just tap on a user’s avatar anywhere in the app, and you can have a conversation with them without ever leaving the app. Today, you can send and receive Direct Messages from the iPhone and Android apps.”

Website

“Now everything you can do on the app is possible on the web. Start and manage groups, send messages, share photos, ask questions, and more, all from the comfort of your desk.”

Who You Know

“To date, you have been able to view the phone numbers of anyone in your groups. As GroupMe has grown and our users have discovered awesome new reasons to start groups, we’ve heard from some people that you don’t always want to share their phone number in their groups.

So starting today, your phone number is kept private from other group members.
 The only way you can see another group member’s phone number in the app is if they’re already in your phone contacts. Of course, if you need to know it, you can always ask them for it by sending a Direct Message in our app. It’s that easy!”

    Also can use Disco.com it works with all phones not just smart ones.
    Allows for polls as well.

    Use it for YL leaders and during Youth Group trips to stay in contact with other drivers.

    i’ve been looking for an iphone app that will let me text 50+ students every week, but every one that i’ve tried has been a disaster with a built-in “reply all” feature…so i text the kids, then 50 people get each & every single response. do u know of any that allow me to text a group but have the responses sent only to me?
