Understanding 3 Types of Facebook Groups and How to Leave a Facebook Group


Are you sick and tired of logging onto Facebook only to find that someone has added you to yet another group that you didn’t ask to be a part of?

Or, is it finally time for you to leave the group you joined months ago that’s become nothing but a spam free-for-all?

I completely get how you might be feeling about Facebook Groups.

Sometimes it can be confusing and more than a little frustrating trying to navigate all the profiles, pages and groups on Facebook and understanding what’s what.

Here is a quick video that gives you a simple explanation of the difference between an open, closed and secret Facebook group AND gives you the step by step instructions on how to leave those groups you no longer want to be a part of for good!

Facebook Groups are a great way to bring people together when they are done well.

You can tell when a group has a solid leader and members who are happy being part of the community because everyone is engaged, adding value and participating.

In The Pilot Project Facebook Group we have a remarkable community of people who have called the Group their Mastermind because of the ongoing sharing, asking of questions, collaboration and support that takes place.

This is the power of Facebook Groups when the members who are there want to be there and show up fully.

The same is true when they are not done well.  You can tell by the lack of engagement, and the volume of spam postings where everyone is trying to promote their own stuff.

You can also tell when they were a short sighted idea and are now abandoned with no love and attention to be felt by anyone.

Make your Facebook Group a great place for people to hang out because your community and relationship with people is the most important thing you can get from Facebook.

  1. Years ago I created two groups without a lot of focus. One was for bloggers, the other for type 2 diabetics. One folded quickly while I’ve kept the other around because every once in awhile someone new stops by who’s just found out they have it and need a shoulder to lean on. Overall it gets little engagement and I try sharing things here and there, but it’s an open group because I remember when I found out I was diabetic there was no one to talk to about it anywhere.

    With that said, being added to a group without permission is the most irritating thing in the world. It doesn’t happen as often now as more and more people have realized the work having a group can be… thank goodness.
