Communities & Groups

These are what drives our site. Groups are where you will find specific information and meet different groups of people.

Communities are groups lead by a community leader and are the cornerstone of Freesteading. Communities are where you will meet new people as well as learn from the community leader and experts within that community. As a member you can join as many communities as you’d like. We encourage you to explore! If you find a community you like, be sure to join!

Or scroll down to learn about Forums


This is where you can have your questions answered.

Forums are within each group and are designed to allow members to ask questions. These questions can be answered by members of the community including experts and community leaders. We use forums to ask questions because the feed can move quite fast on busy groups. The forum allows your question to be seen by many people and remain visible in a place meant specifically for questions and discussion. Forums can be found on the left sidebar and also have a tab in each group called “Discussion”.

Activity Feed

The center for all activity on our site

Your activity feed is the central hub to display all activity from across our website. In your activity feed you will see posts and discussions from the groups you have joined, friends you are connected with, and people the you follow. The activity feed is sortable by all activity, your connections, your likes, groups you’ve joined, and people who have mentioned you. If you would like to see only your posts, you can do so by visiting your profile and then click on timeline.

Announcement: For the first few weeks after Freesteading is public, the activity feed may remain open for everyone to view all posts and discussions across the entire site. Once we think the feed becomes too busy, we will then change the site settings to limit your activity feed to only the groups and people you have chosen to join, like and follow.
