Make a Group on Facebook

Facebook LogosI keep getting requests on how to create groups on Facebook. It’s actually very easy.Group creation on Facebook is also the only way I’ve seen people promote ideas or themselves successfully through Facebook.

Navigating to the Facebook Group Creation Page

Just follow these steps:

  • Sign up for a Facebook account
  • Confirm ownership of your Facebook account through your email account
  • In the search bar at the top of the screen type groups
  • Select Groups from the drop down box that shows up on the screen
  • Click on the button named Create a Group, at the top of the screen

Editing Your Facebook Group Profile

On this page you can name and edit your Facebook Group profile. You only are required to enter an original Facebook Group Name, Description and Facebook Group type. You can also enter the following:

  • Recent News
  • Office or Street Address
  • Email
  • Website
  • City
  • State

Facebook Group Privacy Settings

On the next page you define your privacy settings for your Facebook Group. Define these settings as you like. Here are the options:

  • Non-admins can write on the wall
  • Show group events
  • Enable discussion board
  • Enable photos (Allow members to upload photos or not?)
  • Enable videos (Allow members to upload videos or not?)
  • Enable links (Allow members to upload links or not?)
  • Decide how easily people can join or invite new member’s (Open to all, Admin approval only, or Closed to new member’s)

Now just click the save button and then publish. Yeah, you now have a Facebook Group!
