It’s easy to get your Facebook page started right now!
Step 1: Go to your Facebook home page.
Step 2: On your Facebook home page, go to the ‘EXPLORE’ section in the left-hand bar, and select ‘Pages’. (Your ”EXPLORE’ menu will look a little like the picture on the right, although everyone’s is a little different.)
As the owner of your new page, by default you see a somewhat different view of your own page to a normal page visitor. When you first see your new page, the lower part of your window should be headed ‘Welcome to your new Page’.
Below the ‘Welcome to your page’ heading are the three easy steps to get your new page looking good and ready to start sharing around.
Know your Facebook: What’s the difference between a Facebook ‘page’ and a Facebook ‘group’?
A Facebook page is automatically public. Anyone can ‘like’ and read all the posts on your public page.
Your project group however can (and should) be closed, so that only group members will be able to read group posts. Group members are added by you or by another group member. Group members can be removed if necessary by an admin.
Create your project group page
Your main focus will be your public Facebook page. However, if you don’t already have another safe digital space available for keeping in touch digitally with your own project team – a space that other people who are interested in helping you out can find and join – then it might well be worth starting a ‘group’ too on Facebook.
Creating a group really couldn’t be much easier.
