In this article, we explain how you can create a group, page and an event on Facebook. Do read the article till the end for a detailed explanation.

  • After that, select your group privacy –either public or private. In a public group, the group members and the posts are visible to all while in the private group, the group visibility. Then member identity can be seen only by the group members.
  • If you want that anyone can search the group, then select the Visible option. On the other hand, if you want the group to remain hidden and only the members can find the group, then select the Hidden option.
