How to Create a Facebook Group – See complete Facebook group setup
The Facebook group allows users to gather people of the same interest and purpose of that group. There is a flow of interactions between the Admin and the fans.
You don’t need creating a Facebook page before you can create a group, like when you want to create a Facebook Store, you have to create a Page first, then in that page, you create your store – Learn more about creating Facebook store here.
Activities on Facebook Group
The Facebook group admin(s) and the fans/followers can perform certain tasks or activities, but let’s start with the admin(s).
The admin who is the creator of the group can as well add more admins to become modrators on the group. Perhaps, to make your group more organized and responsible, there are certain rules you must set, which I advice you do so.
But you most try to be active because remember you aren’t the only one with such group idea.
You can go to the “Group Settings” to set rules to favour and make your group last longer.
The Group Fans/Followers:
Of course, the main reason for them coming to your group is to get information that matters to them. And at the cause, they post questions and contribute to the group through the comment box.
The Group followers can post links, images, videos and text too. This is why the Facebook group is also another channel of creating community.
But sometimes it gets out of hand when rules are not set. They post spam contents that could annoy the peace and grouth of your group.
One effective ways of cultaing this is enabling manually approval of comments.
Also when there is masive request to join the group, you can set questions for them to answer and automatically join the group (for new members), etc.
How to Create Facebook Group on Web
Step 1: Log in to your Facebook account. In case you still can’t recall this; “How to login Facebook account” then use this page to learn more now.
Step 2: if your account is already on the Facebook design then you should be enabled to access the “Groups” in several ways.
For instance, you can see the “Groups” icon on the top menu and by the left side of the page menu. (See image below).
Clicking on any of the marked area opens the Facebook Groups page. From there you can all the groups you have created (if you already have) and create new Facebook Groups.
We are creating a new Facebook group.
Step 3: Then click on “Create New Group“
The Facebook new Group form opens. It simple and can be filled up within 5mins.
The group’s name is the first thing to fill out. Then select whether you want your Group Private or Public. Then start inviting your friends to come join the group. But you can skip the invitation and click on “Create“.
Please note that when you select to create a Facebook Private Group, you will further be asked whether you want that private group to be visible or hidden. The visibility option simply means that anyone can find this group. It depends on the aims and objectives of the group you’re creating.
Step 4: Now your Facebook Group is created but you have to start optimizing it adding Cover Photo, Add Description of your group.
You could as well go further to set rules for the groups.
There are rules I always consider important and are;
- Set questions for the interesting member to answer and automatically get approval to join the group. This is when there are so many requests at the same time, so instead of delaying them, once they are able to answer or respond to the questions then they will be approved into the group automatically.
- All comments by the members must be moderated by me before approval or decline them. This is to avoid spam contents and may render the group useless.
How to Create Facebook Group with Facebook Mobile App
make sure you have updated or installed an updated Facebook App.
I think it is necessary that you know where the Facebook menu bar/button is located. We can get started from there.
The Facebook Menu is the hamburger menu (three stacked lines). It could be in the lower right corner in IOS and in the upper right corner on Android phones.
On smart phones like Android phones and iPhones you have to click on the menu to see further see “Groups” menu that you will click on. Or you can click on the Groups icon Menu to go to Facebook Groups page. (see image below).
then you will see “Create” at the top of the Page. Click on it to start creating your Facebook group on Mobile.
The steps above, on “How to Create Facebook Group on Web” remains the same from here.
