The New Facebook Groups Are Cool!

Have you checked out the new Facebook groups yet?

This is a follow-up post to my original post about the new Facebook groups.

To learn more about the new Facebook groups, we asked Cindy (the member who actually created the page for our group, The Online Masterminds) questions about how she created our group page and what changes other members could make to the page. Here are some of the things we learned:

1. To create your own group, you will follow these steps:

Create Group > Group Name > Icon (select one of many) > Members (add friends to group) > Privacy (select open, closed, secret)

Open means that members and content are public.
Closed means that members are public, but content is private.
Secret means that members and content are private.

2. It appears that only the person who creates the group can make changes, like new profile picture and new group name.

The group decided to change the group name to The Online Masterminds.

You can select from several icon choices that Facebook gives you or add a picture from your own files.

3. It is very easy to chat with group members who are online. This is a cool feature that allows you to see what all the members who are participating in the chat are saying.

4. You can send an email to everyone in the group using the email feature on the group page, and that email will show up in their email inbox and as a post on the group page. This takes a few minutes.

5. Each group member can edit their settings for the following options:

–Notify me when: a member posts, a friend posts, only posts I am subscribed to.
–Turn off or on email notification.
–Show group link in your home navigation so you can click the link in the left-hand, side bar to easily access group page.
–Turn off or on group chat messages which allows members to easily chat with you.

Let me know your comments about the new Facebook groups.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
