Why you should use groups on Facebook
The best way to get people interested in your group is, of course, to send out updates on what’s happening. But if you want to keep everyone on Facebook more than just interested in the group, one thing you can do is pin your group to the top of your profile so that it shows up every time you log in or share something. This makes it sure that people interested in the group get notifications and updates from your group directly on their Facebook page.
How to pin a group on facebook
Log into Facebook and go to your group. You should see a little pin that says “Pin to the top of your timeline” at the top right corner of the cover photo. Click on it and select “Pin to the top” or “Pin permanently”.
Now check back in, and you should find your group at the very top of your timeline every time you log in or share something.
Tips: One thing to remember is that, even though you will now be reposting all of your group’s updates as regular posts for your friends to see (which they might take as spam), these regular updates won’t reach people who haven’t joined the group yet. Remember that one of the best things about groups is that you can send updates to people who are interested without having to spam your friends. To get around this, make sure that you still use your profile to promote the group.
This way, you can reach even more people who might be interested in it.
Arrange groups on Facebook
You can also arrange the order of pictures and icons on your timeline, but it’s important to make sure that pins stay at the top. To do this, click on the “More” button below your cover photo and select “Timeline settings”. Select which groups you want to show up first in your newsfeed, then scroll down and check “Make group pins and other important items always show up first” and hit confirm. You can also select whether or not you want to rearrange your friends’ faces as well.
The best way to make sure everyone gets their updates from a group is, of course, to use the subscribe feature.
Benefits of using groups on Facebook
Even though groups can be a little complicated at times, there are many benefits:
For example, if you want to post about your company and send it only to interns or employees, make a group. Everyone in the group will receive updates from the page without having to like it.
This is especially helpful for pages that don’t need to post updates all the time. This way, you can update people who are interested without spamming your friends.
Groups also make doing giveaways easier, since you can send updates to everyone taking part rather than having to share it on your timeline several times.
They are less formal than pages and make connecting with other people easier because there are less rules.
It is also easier to tell which posts are working and which ones aren’t by watching the engagement on it.
Groups, like pages, all allow businesses and people to connect with other users. They’re similar to lists but you can post updates to the group as a whole, rather than having specific contacts. By doing this you can send updates that might be interesting or useful for everybody in the group without spamming your friends.
People often use groups to join together on a common interest, such as parenting or cooking. Because there are fewer rules on groups, people can share more freely and connect with others easier than they could on their timeline. For example, if you want to post updates about your company and send it only to interns or employees, make a group. Everyone in the group will receive updates from the page without having to like it.
