How to create, manage and use Facebook Group

Facebook Group is an important tool you may use to connect with people of the same interest with you. By using this application correctly, you may find it fun and satisfying to manage.

Creating Facebook Group

You need to have a Facebook account, of course, in order to create a group.

1. After you log-in, you can see a toolbar below the the page. Click on the Group option, it is second from the Application bar.

2. You will be directed to the Group page. At the upper right corner of the page, you can see the "Create a Group" option next to the "Search for group" input field.

3. Then, you'll find yourself in this page:

4. Fill up the form and then click "Create Group."

5. You will be directed to the "Customize" page. Make some necessary changes according to what you would like your Group to be. You can upload a picture for your group (i.e. logo), add a website, and other options. Then click "Save." Be sure you've ticked the "I certify that I have the right to distribute this picture and that it does not violate the Terms of Use" option.

6. Congratulations! You've created the Group.

Managing Your Facebook Group

A group is not a group without members. So be sure to invite your friends or people you want to be in the group to be a member and tell them to invite others too.

To make your group interactive, make some discussions. You can also make an "Introduce Yourself" discussion to have a welcome atmosphere in the group. You can also create events, upload photos and videos, and as an adminitrator, you can use the "Message All Members" option. Keep the group updated with recent news about what's happening in the group. You can also promote members as officers of the group to help you manage the group.

Use Facebook Group in anything you want. You may use it as a portal for something (i.e. advertising, etc.).

Is there a way (in the facebook group admin) to monitor/manage who joins your group and when?

I am an admin of a FB group. Is there a way to post comments on the wall & send invites, etc that look like they come from the GROUP, not me personally?

What do we do when we can't load links in the group? I've had this problem for months ... so I found a work-around and now the work-around doesn't work either! Facebook is impossible to contact ... any suggestions on why links aren't working in my Group? I can paste the link in anywhere (in a browser) and it will go there but if I paste the same link in Facebook links in my Group ... it defaults to www.facebook.com and it's very annoying cause I put lots of links in my group on a daily basis. Any advice anyone can offer is greatly appreciated.

anuja, go to your group homepage. at the left side bar you should see the "Edit Group Settings" option. Click it.

You will be redirected to you group settings page. Scroll down to the bottom of the page. You should see the "access" options. Select "This group is closed". Don't forget to save. Thanks.

1-can you deactivate a group/ and reinstate it like a personal page. 2- if you deactivate your personal page, will the groups you admin disappear too?

thanks, @CruiseDivaNJ and Cruise Chatter on FB.

Jenny, unfortunately Facebook has not added a cover photo option for group pages in their Facebook app yet.
