20. Why Facebook Groups are Important for Finding and Creating Your Tribe
She’s back! With a little trickery, I convinced my good friend Astral Riles to join me for this week’s episode to discuss Facebook groups. Astral is well-versed in social media forums and also serves as the administrator for our Let’s Talk About Fashion Trucks Facebook group so she’s the perfect guest for this topic.
Continuing with my goal of increasing my networking this year, we discuss how Facebook group’s can be used to find your tribe, increase your network, learn a new skill, or gain support for any personal or professional endeavor. Hopefully this episode will inspire you to join a group or even create one of your own.
- What’s the difference between public, closed, and secret groups?
- Public: Anyone can join or be added or invited by a member; Anyone can see content
- Closed: Anyone can ask to join or be added or invited by a member; Anyone can see the group, however, only member can see content
- Secret: No-one can see the group or post except current or former members; To get invited you must be added or invited by a member
