What is Facebook groups and how do they work?

Facebook groups allow us to create and manage groups of people in order to communicate and participate in them. Normally, of they are usually created to speak two-way of a specific topic.


Although Facebook groups are similar to pages, there is a big one difference between two. Since in the case of the fanpage the communication is one-way and there is little communication between users. While the groups are categorized to be the opposite.

Top reasons Facebook incorporated this option

As you surely know, at the dawn of the social network Facebook this useful tool did not exist. It was some time later that it started incorporating new features, including creating groups. But why did the Facebook developers decide to add this option? 

The main reason was on request of its users. As this idea was becoming more and more necessary. Also, it's a useful feature to allow people to be more communicated and connected to particular topics.

Another very relevant reason was to not go unnoticed and to create competition with other social networks. Since for example WhatsApp had this option, while Facebook did not yet have it.



Likewise, since the fanpage already existed, it was necessary and important to create an alternative for it. Taking into account that the fanpage is one-way. While the groups are bidirectional.

What are Facebook groups for?

Facebook groups give us several advantages, in terms of:

  • Share information of great interest to the group and keep in touch with group members.
  • You can also use the group chat to contact one of its members.
  • Join the group, creating content that all members can contribute to.
  • Direct transmission
  • Normally, in Facebook groups you get more visits and reactions than with fan pages.

  • It will be created immediately and you can customize it, that is, add your profile picture, invite all your friends to a Facebook group, upload publications, among other things.
