If you need to have a discussion with a number of individuals connected to your cause, you may wish to think about a Facebook Group (or numerous different groups) in addition to your nonprofit's official Facebook Page.


It's a lot easier to speak with everybody in a Facebook Group Posts by people in a Group all show up in the exact same place-- it's variation of a Timeline-- rather than your Page which just reveals posts by the administrators by default.

You can control who can join your group and limit posts to pertinent content. If you have to speak with volunteers about an occasion, then the Group requires to only be comprised of those volunteers. And you only need to discuss stuff related to offering. Volunteers do not have to scroll through other posts you would need to make to your Page.

You can likewise upload or develop declare the Group, create events, send messages, as well as post photos or videos.

We utilize Facebook Groups for our All-Access Pass Holders, mentoring groups, and e-clinics as a way for participants in those programs to get in touch with our professionals in addition to each other.

How To Start A Facebook Group

You will have to log in to Facebook with your individual profile. At this time, a Facebook Page can not create a group-- it needs to be an individual. If you don't want your individual profile connected with the group, then create a second profile to simply handle your Groups.

As soon as you are visited, planning to the left sidebar and discover "Groups.".

A discussion box will turn up requesting some standard details about your Group.

Fill in the name of the Group. If you desire a Closed or a Trick Group you need to include at least one buddy. Start typing a name in the "Members" box, then your pals will be listed in drop-down type.

Group Personal privacy.

  • If it does not matter who joins your Group or who sees the content published, then you can develop a Public Group. Anybody can discover your Group, join it and see and publish material.

  • If you wish to restrict who joins your Group and the content just be seen by those in the Group, then produce a Closed Group. I suggest this setting. Members must ask for to sign up with the Group and be authorized by an admin before they can see any material. But you do not have to be Facebook good friends with someone in order for them to find the Group. You can send the Group's url to welcome individuals to sign up with.

  • While a Secret Group is similar, members can just add their Facebook Friends. If you send out the url to someone not in the group, they will not have the ability to discover it nor see its members.

After you select the privacy setting, click the "Create Group" button.

Next, you will be asked to choose an icon which will appear in the sidebar next to the name of your group. There are many to pick from or you can avoid this completely. You can return and add one later.

After you choose an icon (or skip that step) you will be required to your Group's primary page which will look like this in the beginning.

To finish your Group, submit a cover photo-- the perfect size is 784 x 250.

Then fill in a description with a welcome message or any guidelines for the group.

To welcome others to your Group simply copy and paste the url * then send it to them.

When someone who is not currently in your Group goes to that url, they will triggered to join the group.

For a Closed Group:.

Non-members will just have the ability to see the cover photo, the name of the Group, its description and its members. No content can be accessed.

Once someone clicks that "Join Group" button, you will get a notification. You can select to add that person, disregard that individual, or block that individual:.

Those are the essentials for creating a Group, but there are more alternatives to think about. Click the "..." in the cover photo location, then select "Edit Group Settings.".

Here you can modify the standard setting also whether any member can include and approve brand-new members or if you only want administrators with that power.

You can likewise control the material posted. Decide whether any member can publish or just admins. And if you do enable any member to post, you can likewise subject those posts to approval by an admin.

* New feature I simply observed while creating this post-- You can now obviously produce a personalized web address for your Group that makes it easier to bear in mind the url. It's the very same as creating the url for your individual profile or your Page. As I wasn't sure this function was readily available to everyone (Facebook is well-known for slowly rolling out functions), I am leaving the old method up for purposes of this post. The original url (the one with all the numbers) will still work even after you have customized it.
