The Benefits of Facebook
For the first time, I'm using a private Facebook group to foster connections within my small group-and it's been an extremely useful tool. If your group members have Facebook accounts, consider using this free tool that will allow you to connect in new ways throughout the week.
When setting up a Facebook group, be sure to make it a "secret" group. This will ensure that only the members of the group will be able to see posts. This means they will not show up on newsfeeds or on individual members' profiles. A secret group will allow your group members to share with confidence.
Smart Phone Ready
If you're looking for a way to instantly contact all your members at once, look no further-especially if your group members have smart phones. Group members' phones will alert them that there's a new message for them on Facebook.
