Mark Zuckerberg Meets With Lola Omolola Founder Of FIN

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, on Tuesday received Nigeria’s Lola Omolola, founder of a secret Facebook group called Female in Nigeria.





FIN was founded in 2015 by Omolola, a movement of women focused on building compassion and providing support for one another, with the goal of having up to 1000 members in the group.

However, the group exceeded its target as it recently hit one million members.

According to Zuckerberg’s Facebook page on Tuesday, he will be meeting with Lola and a few hundred of other top Facebook group admins in Chicago later in the month for the first ever Facebook Communities Summit.

“Over the past few weeks, I’ve been meeting group admins across the country that are building meaningful communities on Facebook and will be at the summit.

“Two years ago, she founded a secret Facebook group called Female IN, or FIN,’’ Zuckerberg said.

Zuckerberg said FIN is “a no-judgment space where more than a million women come to talk about everything from marriage and sex to health issues and work problems’’

“It is helping to end the culture of silence that exists for women in some parts of the world.’’

He said for the past decade, Facebook had been focused on making the world more open and connected.

The Facebook founder expressed the willingness of the platform to continue to connect persons, adding that there was the need to do much more by bringing people closer together and build common understanding.

“One of the best ways to do that is by helping people build community, both in the physical world and online.

“I have written and talked about these themes throughout this year, especially in my community letter in February and at Harvard Commencement in May.

“The Chicago summit will be the next chapter and we’ll discuss more of what we’re building to empower community leaders to bring the world closer.

“I’m looking forward to meeting more admins like Lola and talking about how we can help them do even more to build community.

“I’ll share more info on the summit as we get closer, and I’ll stream the event live from my profile later this month.’’

I have learnt to waka pass sha, especially after they banned me sometime last year 😁😁😁😁😁. All the same I think the general idea behind the group is a really good one. My sister carries the group on her head like gala seller, but JM very indifferent. I learn from stroeies worth learning from, and hurriedly walk past some others 😂😂😂😂.

Taaaaaa! Anonymous linus! Like it's been said up there, they're basically a support group. Feminist ke. Women who've survived DV giving support to others who don't know what to do in DV situation is now feminism? How about those who have medical conditions and come there to ask how to go about solving them or people who've survived sharing their testimonies so others can learn. That's feminism too? Idiot! If you don't know jack about something, just STFU and move along

Broomstick said...

I left FIN because they've got this hangup about asking questions. People ask questions for clarification and you'll find members jumping on the person that asked as if the person is attacking the "poster". They say "no judgment" but they're the most judgmental lot I've ever come across. Eg someone posts stuff about having fibroid at the age of say 24 and complications that came of it etc. And how she was able to overcome through prayers and seeking medical help. You innocently,(for emphasis) with your church mind ask how possible it is to have fibroids at that tender age, just cos you may happen to fall in that age bracket. Your aim was to know how to avoid being a victim but the unjudging judginas will jump on your case like you've attacked the testifier. I couldn't deal, so I clicked the unlike button fast. Stella, you're missing but not really missing that much. I think the fear about adding you is that you might be tempted to codedly mention something about someone shared in the group. What do I know sef. Abeg, na only my mind I fit talk

Ahhh, that's wickedness and against the rules of FIN. U shld report her and let then take her out. I no be FIN by spirit and mind oo, i no dey even comment sef. But wat she did is all shades of wickedness. And shey na lie u talk? Y r u begging for forgiveness if it's d truth?

FIN is another arm created by the devil to break some homes. Some of the advice they give there is satanic and devilish. Some post are absolutely void of morality.

Chiamaka L said...

It is not the question but how it was asked, sisters sensitivity is put above you inquisition. You would be surprised that someone else would get the information you sought on that same page. Truth is, if you don't get it, you just don't. FIN is not for all women, there are women who only the the men, sex and family experiences, while there are some of us who see the package. It is a group of over 1 million women, we do not expect everyone to be in tune with every post. So you are always advised to waka pass if you can't deal with a particular post. I love being a FINstar, It is women helping women have a voice. Not everyone have to agree. Just those with the FIN spirit.

Ammy Bee said...

@Broomstick, when someone shares their experience, it is not for you to decide if it is true or false. There are kids that have been found to have lump in their breast, even breast cancer. So I see no reason why you should question a 24 years old saying she had fibroid. It's her story if you don't believe, ignore. If she knew how not to be a victim in the first place she won't have it. Its her story, she can decide the part she wants to share.So if you can't encourage her, waka pass. If judginas are allowed. People will feel worse off, which is not the aim of the group. And we don't believe in watching war-room abi na cold room. I see you sis.

All they do is share miserable stroies. I always felt miserable reafing the posts. Always something sad. I can't be part of such a group abeg. I need things to make me happy not sadden me. I dont want to be added back

Bhiojay said...

I hear you sisters.

Fin is a great group that has helped lots of women.

It opens our eyes to so many ills of the society e.g your GIRL CHILD(REN) must be looked after with the watchful eyes of an eagle

* Whatever you are going through women all over the world irrespective of age, nationality, religion etc have been thru it and come out victorious.

* don't ever deceive yourself that u can change any man.

* move out and move on from any abusive relationship bcos pple that have gone thru it will tell u from experience that it's either u get killed, disfigured or die untimely.

I can tell you that being a FIN member is great experience because u learn, u laughed, u cried etc bcos u realized that so many pple have walked in your shoes so u are not alone with whatever u are going thru.

Women go thru a lot.

Stella they refused to add you because u are a blogger.You can say anything regardless of how it hurts the person or family.u are not a fair person in some cases and justifiably so because in your profession you have to speak without fear or favour. Unfortunately in FIN secrecy is key,womeb are encouraged to share with no repercussion because they have the luxury of easing their aching hearts without being exposed. Pls don't come to FIN,u are too mouthed for most women there who are broken and recovering from heart rending situations.lettgem heal in peacetime can keep helping the ones u can here as u do nothing spoil. Don't come abeg. Thank you

Anonymous said...

Stella you won't last in the group. Lol

There are some things that are outright wrong but if you say anything outside supporting the poster, you will be called a judge and removed.
A lady wore a dress which was visibly revealing and said her pastor called her out. Everyone focused on insulting the pastor and applauding her response forgetting that the dress was too damn revealing. The people who managed to say the truth were warned it's a no judging group. I was weak.

Another time a lady writes a dialogue which showed she was indeed rude to her husband. And she was applauded for being able to stand up for herself.

The group has its good side (I love they preach to stand up against DV and education on sex which people shy away from) but also it's not so good side. Go there and tell them how you woke up feeling like you want to be a lesbian and no one dares give you it's wrong or a religious reply. They will say if it's what you want, ride on sis.

If one is not strong they will be brainwashed into accepting everything said on that group is right, practise it at home and end up breaking their marriage.

You guz saying u removed yourself should stop lying abeg, u were excused probably from insensitive remarks or liking comments that are insensitive.

Most people that were removed begged me to re-add them so how come u are flexing that u removed yourself.

Sometimes I might not comment or like post for months or I might not read sef. But still go back.

Nigerians should learn to be non judgemental which is one of the rules of Female IN.

I posted something on chronicles last year, someone was calling me olosho, one even said I was defending myself by trolling people people's comments which of course I didn't do.

Please try and be sensitive bcos a careless comments might pushed someone to the brink and the death of that person will be on you.

SuperMom said...

Used to be in that group o, but I was removed because I told a lady His is not proud of her actions.
A group that don't acknowledge the existence of God,bans you from saying anything relating to God.
Encourages divorce, don't preach forgiveness. Making women goat head in their homes. Forgetting that what works In Mrs A home won't work in Mrs B home.
I won't deny that they don't have their good, but the bad outweighs the good.
It teaches against domestic violence, buy also tells you to confront your husband. Hain!
They have a different idea of submissiveness to your husband.
They want you to support every post even when it's plainly wrong.
Support homosexuality,the funny thing is that those who even supports it are mere hypocrites.
Finally a gathering of people that refuse to talk about God, knowing he is concerned about the tiniest details of our life is total rubbish.

#youspeaklies #whyyoulying? I understand that you were removed from the group but lying about it?
All the testimonies about what God has done for the testifier is what? All the acknowledgement of God awesomeness is what?
It does not encourage divorce but encourages women not to stay put and die in violent and abusive marriages and relationships; separate from the man and get your life back rather than stay put because of world people and what they will say is not a sin.
Homosexuality? Believe it or not it carries the same judgement as telling a negligible lie and who pounds that telling of lie into you all the time or hold it over your head like the sword of damocles? Whether you like it or not Someone somewhere thinks your lifestyle is a big sin but in your eyes is it? Focus on making heaven and spreading the gospel with love and not hate which is what majority of people do when the same sex issue comes up.
Yes FIN has a rule of not forcing your religion or belief down another person's throat and that is fine. A million members and counting and you think everyone there is a Christian or even if the same faith? Even in Christianity we have Anglicans, catholics, protestants, letter day saints, JWs so what are we saying when you add Muslims etc to it? Pure undiluted chaos is what you get. Fin had never flaunted itself as a religious group; there are thousands of that on fb...find them and join them if that is what tickles your fancy. The rules are there and because they don't start and end the day with fasting and praying posts does not give you the right to rubbish the good it actually does. The giving, solidarity, understanding, support that so many women get there (which is what the group stands for) is amazing.
So many judginas and pull down syndrome is what is killing people...the deed has been done so why use your mouth to kill off the person?
I can go on and on but free Lola and her group alone. She's doing an awesome job, why don't you find one and do? And if you already have one, do it so much so that it brings you international recognition.

It's true what most of the anons on here have said. If you dare to disagree with any post on there you will be bullied and shunned or even banned out of the group. I remember a post where the ladies were abusing a housegirl and calling her all sorts of names. I dared to say we should not abuse the housegirl and next thing I know i was blocked. Within my first day of being on the group!

See the "I'm not judging but let me judge" attitude I'm talking about? Before you condemn, understand. Women like you are the reason those who would actually have benefited from the group leave the group. Must I Google everything? "Is there something one can do to avoid getting fibroid at such an early age?". That was the question a friend asked and she was booted out! Wish I could post the screenshot! How the heck is that being judgmental? Please enjoy your FIN and stop judging people with real concerns

Aunty, I removed myself. I can't deal with not being able to express myself freely even when I'm not trying to judge the person. Like I wrote above, I left after a friend was removed for asking a straightforward, I wanna learn question. Is FIN putting food on my table that I'll desperately want to be re-added? Y'all end up making money for the admin with all your donations and purchases. I recently saw a lady in Calabar wearing the T-shirt and I walked up to her and said hi just so I could check out the quality of the T-shirt and figure out why the heck it cost so damn much. Omo, I no see nada! Don't get me started abeg

I left the group too after I was warned about asking a question. I challenged the stupid administrator too, before she could respond in her usual high and mighty way, I clicked "leave group" Some of us are just allergic to bullshit. Something will happen that will shake that group to its core very soon. Na Fbi go request for it to be shut down. Yeye lesbians?!!

Most of the stories are cooked up lies, fragments of the posters imagination. A grown woman of 24 went to hospital with a headache and the male doctor who attended to her told her to lie down for an internal examination, before she could say Jack, he was fingering her with no gloves on. I dared to ask her, how come?? What is the connection BTW the head and the privates. I was attacked for that and I promptly left their group of brainwashed fools.

I agree. I deleted myself from the group and disabled the ability to be added back. Only a dumb person would think that their post is secret in that group. Besides, a good number of the stories shared are not edifying. I cannot condone stupidity in the name of being supportive or nonjudgmental.
