  • After doing so, you will get to see a new window. That is the window for creating a Facebook group. In the first field, you should name your group (for example, “PARTY AT MY HOUSE 19.06.2020”). In the second field, you can automatically add the friends of yours you want to this group: all you have to do is just to enter their names or email addresses. Then, you should choose what type of a group it must be: public, closed, and secret. Public group can be accessed by any user of Facebook. Closed group and posts within this group can be seen only by the members of this group. Secret group can be found only by the members of this group (others will not see it). Also, you can make it more convenient to access the group by creating a shortcut: check the box “Pin to Shortcuts.”
