Love Facebook Groups, but hate searching for what you’re looking for?
Or even worse, you have a group that can’t be found?
Well, if you’re like me, you get frustrated when you can’t find what you’re looking for and abandon the search—even if it is a component of a paid membership program.
For example, I belong to a few private and closed groups, but unless I receive a link in an email that takes me directly to the group, it takes to much time to search for the groups amidst the numerous groups. Needless to say, if it takes to long to search for the group chances are I won’t particiapte in the group as much as I would like to do.
And, if it is you’re own group,…that’s another story.
You want people to have access to your group without all the fuzz and frustration.
Finally!!! Facebook Groups Linked To Facebook Pages
