Grouping It Up On Facebook
On Facebook, groups are another tool you can use to socialize online with people. There are groups on just about every subject including business topics, study groups, and groups that are purely for fun. You can also start your own group.
Your profile page will have a link on it called “groups”. Click on it to get started. Also, remember that when someone starts a group, they can list it as public or private.
If it is private, people can’t join it unless they are invited.
Groups can be started by individuals, groups, or companies. Some groups are formed for a common goal. Others are filled with like-minded people.
And, anyone can start a group. If you want to start a group, you’ll need to go through the effort of finding members and managing it.
WHY GET STARTED WITH GROUPS?
Groups are another way that Facebook helps develop a sense of community and share like-minded interests.
If you want to get the most from your experience on the site, you should consider joining at least one group.
You can also start a group. If you have a particular interest, you can start a group to share that interest with like-minded people.
FACEBOOK GROUPS FOR BUSINESS
You can definitely use the Facebook groups feature for business. There are several ways you can do this.
Start a group with your business’s theme and network to find people to become members. This will help draw attention to your business.
Join groups and contribute as a way to find people for your business.
Use the groups to find people to add to your friends list who look like they will be good potential customers or clients.
Remember that Facebook is a community, and you need to work to foster that sense of communities. Groups are a great way to do that. However, if you try to sell to them, you won’t be effective. You just need to be a nice, kind member of the community.
HOW TO FIND A GROUP TO JOIN
Before you can actually join a group, you need to find a group to join.
In order to do this, the group needs to be listed on one of your networks. Or, it can be listed as a “global” group, which means it is available to all of the networks.
When you click on the “Groups” link on your profile, you’ll notice two things. The first is that the page will feature a list of groups that you are a part of, and also groups that your friends have joined.
To find new groups, you can either join a group a friend is part of, or you can use the search box to find groups that support your interests.
You can also use the category feature of the Groups page to browse through groups that are part of a specific category.
Keep in mind that there are a lot of groups on a variety of different subjects. Each group has a different purpose and a different dynamic.
