How do you cite a facebook group and message?

    I collect some of my information from facebook groups and people will private message me. I want to cite it all, but how. I added a capsule with contributions and did it that way, but did I do it right?

    Well, that mostly depends on the permissions of the Facebook object. Message, page, group post etc all have different permissions and it all depends on who's running that object.

    Why on earth would you cite something from Facebook? That's like considering what my 3yr old tells you is fact! You're better off verifying the information with a reputable source and cite the source. Mention FB if you really feel a need.

      What I do is I use websites for sources. I go onto facebook and join groups to verify the information is correct. Some things on the web are not true.
