Tips For Setting a New Group

  1. When making a new private Facebook group, choose the name carefully. It should be according to the group’s purpose so that your group pops up before relevant people search for it.
  2. Next, set a cover photo of your Facebook group. It should be self-explanatory and must align with the purpose of your group. For example, the cover photo should include the tag or logo if you are a business or company.
  3. The description of the group should explain well the goal of this group. What will be the topic of discussion here, and some background story as well
  4. Set the group rules and clearly define the boundaries there. Then, make sure everyone agrees and follows them.
