OTHER QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE
How is Oroola different from other social networks such as Facebook?
Unlike a mailing list, which Yahoo Groups essentially is, Oroola's platform is built from scratch and dedicated to parents' needs. Members can communicate either in a group setting or in private without exposing their contact information. Oroola's platform is an ecosystem that helps PTA and schools to collaborate not just with parents but with other community members, thereby making it easy to recruit volunteers, raise funds from community businesses, etc. Moving your existing community from Yahoo Groups to Oroola is super easy - just copy and paste a URL into an email and all existing members will receive a unique link to sign up for your PTA group. Unlile Yahoo groups, Oroola provides all essential tools in one place - calendar, group signup, private chat, file and photo sharing and more.
Oroola is private, meaning we don't publish or share any member activity outside of the community. Other social networks, such as Facebook, track users and user activities not only on their own website but throughout the internet. They track users on close to 100 data points (even in private groups), including user's job, household data, and several other pieces of information. Also Facebook uses automated algorithms to display information to members, which means information shared in your groups or on your FB page is not necessarily seen by all members in a timely manner; depending on users' activity and level of engagement, some users may see the information in their feed, while others may not. Oroola is designed for maximum and efficient parent engagement
Knowledge and information is multiplied when shared, which means when parents/PTA share information across different schools, more useful information is generated that helps the community increase their learning opportunities and benefits everyone. Today, already many parents share information such as community events and educational resources, from one school group to another by re-posting the same information. Oroola makes it easy to share that same information with just a few clicks without the need for joining multiple school groups.
No, not at all. We hate ads as much as you do. There are absolultey no annoying popup or any other kinds of ads showing up in your face or changing colors all over the screen, The offering is completely free without any kind of advertisement.
