Ever wanted to create a group for your Business, and wondered how to do this without having to be "friends" on your personal page first? Follow these step by step instructions and you'll be up and running in no time.
Log in to your person Facebook account and click “Groups” from the menu on the left. You will see a list of groups you are currently a part of.
Click the “+ Create Group” button in the top right corner.
Type a name for your group in the Group Name text box.
Type the name of friends you would like to invite to the group in the Members box. You must add at least one member to the group.
Select “Closed” from the Privacy drop-down menu to create a private group.
Click the “Create” button to create your new private group. Facebook will take you to the group page and automatically add the members to the group.
Return to the Facebook business page and post a link to your group in the comments section. This allows members of the page to access the group and request membership. You will have to approve their membership to the group before they can view the posts created within the group.
Note: You still manage this group from your own page.
Go back to the Group and change the settings, give your group it's own email and web address.
This is where you can change the settings for who can post to the group also. Eg. admin or admin and group members. And if people need to be approved by an admin before they join.
