How to create a group on Facebook

Want to create a group on Facebook but, not being very familiar with the social network founded by Mark Zuckerberg, you do not have the faintest idea how to proceed? No fear! Just follow the steps listed below to complete the task.

How to create a group on Facebook from PC

To create a group on Facebook from the PC, connected by the browser to this page of the social network (of course after you have already logged in to your account) and click on the green Create group button located at the top right.

In the box that opens, type the name you want to assign to the group in the text field located under the entry Give a name to the group, select the users you want to include in the latter by typing their names or their email addresses in the field text placed under the entry Add some people and then select one of the privacy settings available to decide who will be able to view the content posted: Public group, to allow all users of Facebook to view the group and the content posted in it; Group closed, to allow everyone to find the group and see the members, but without being able to view the posts or Secret Group, to allow only members of the group to find it and view its posts.

After choosing the name of the group, the members that will be part of it and the privacy settings, click on the blue button Create, select an icon that identifies the latter (eg the icon of the basketball, if your new group is dedicated to the world of basketball or the camera icon, if your group talks about photography) and click on the blue OK button. If you wish, you can also skip this step by clicking on the Skip entry.
