Hi everyone! This is my first post here
I run a community where we help our members achieve their goals and create the life they desire. We focus on the following categories: Financial and Professional Success, Relationships, Personal Development, Style, and Fitness. Thus far, all of our members are men (it started as a male-focused community), but we want to find a way to include women as well. We can do this in two ways, and I am not sure which one is the best.
The first one is to have only one mixed FB group and have all of our members there.
The second one is to have 3 FB groups. One for male members, one for females, and one mixed FB group (all members will be there). The members will be able to choose which FB group to post in depending on the people they would like to see and comment on their posts. The assumption that supports this idea is that most members will feel safer discussing very personal information regarding relationships or dating in same-gender FB groups.
We have done user research: 90% of our existing members and 80% of the women that are going to join prefer to have the options to post on same-gender groups and on the mixed group.
What is your opinion? What would you do? Thank you very much!
