I learned something new today.

There's such a thing on Facebook as secret groups. I knew there were private groups, where you had to be accepted by the admin to join. But I'd never come across a secret group before. Which just proves how secret it is.

A friend of mine added me to a secret group. It has nearly 2,000 members which, let's face it, isn't _that_ secret.

And this isn't one that the security services will be losing too much sleep over, though they may well be tracking it.

Because it is a cat appreciation page. Because there aren't enough cats on the internet, there're now _secret cats_ on the internet.

Apparently I'm late to this party (though being secret, I didn't realise this until now). Lots of my friends are already secret cat appreciation members already. (You know who you are! It's not that much of a secret that some of you like cats...)

Now I suppose I shall be ostracised. Because the first rule of secret cat appreciation group is...

It falls into the "doesn't everyone know that" category for me, almost as soon as they launched groups in the current form I set a few up just to see what they could do, secret makes sense as it's not listed on your profile, very useful for certain purposes (survivors groups and game invasion planning being fairly common uses).

It makes lots of sense! I just hadn't come across it before.
