How to Create New Facebook Group or Join Existing Facebook Groups

A big part of Facebook is its groups. A group is for people who have similar interests. A group can be for a club, a sports team, a graduate class, and so much more.

Join or create a group and stay connected with everyone in that group. Chat with people, let them know about meetings or events, make connections with others, and provide information.

What Kind of Groups Can You Join?

1. You can find the ‘group’ tab on the left hand side of the main page. Click on it and you’ll be redirected to a different page.

The people who create the group control who can see the information in the group. They can restrict it to members only or allow the public to view it. To join a group click ‘join.’
