In October 2010, I wrote New Facebook Groups Wreak Havoc. The “new” Facebook groups were brand new, and they were ruffling quite a few feathers. People added their friends en masse causing them to receive unwanted notification emails. You can imagine the chaos.
Facebook Tones Down Group Notifications
Over time, Facebook members came to expect that they would be added involuntarily to groups and adjusted accordingly.
I belong to scores of groups, and most of them I’ve been added to without my request. If I don’t like a group, I leave it. Sometimes, I adjust my group notification settings based both on my interest level and the quantity of posts and comments.
Helping Your Favorite Facebook Groups Thrive
The success of a Facebook group depends upon adding new members, just as much as it depends upon member engagement and the quality of posts and content.
If you like a Facebook group, participate, contribute relevant posts and comments, and add friends to that group whom you think might be interested. Let each person choose whether to leave or to remain in the group.
My Favorite Facebook Groups
Two of my favorite Facebook groups are:
- Watch Enthusiasts - Discuss watches and share information about your favorite models, brands and events with fellow members. Good group for learning and seeing what’s out there. (Sponsored by high-end watchmaker, watch distributor and online publisher, Gevril Group.)
- Larry Brauner - Is any explanation required?
