> There should be a disclaimer on those facebook groups that were linked above «If you are not here to bash CSHQ, you shall not "be welcome"»
> Those facebook groups are not the "alternative", specially when the "Ambassadors" group is packed with people that want all but promoting CS.

Dear Cesar,

I am wondering what do you mean by "promoting CS" - promoting Couchsurfing global community OR promoting unefficient commercial organization run by dysfunctional staff, which used to be called Couchsurfing Inc.? Can you see the difference between two of them?

Hi Pamela,

Facebook is used by the German Berlin Community a lot, too. And sometimes it is very helpful.

The only issue is:

CS Berlin made the experience, that CouchSurfing forces Facebook to delete our group "CouchSurfing Berlin on Facebook" - presumably because of violating Copyright stuff (e.g. using the name without permission):

:-(

Cheers, Guenther

As for Moscow - there is obviously CS Moscow FB group, and it seems that most active csers are there...
I was told that in Barcelona you do not even open cs website - all meetings info is on CS Barcelona FB page...
