Facebook isn’t in some random, tiny corner of the Internet anymore. It is a huge part of not just the Internet but across most countries and cultures around the globe.
And because of that you need to be in a Facebook Group.
Yes, I’m being dead serious.
But why, Ryan? Why do I need to do another thing on Facebook?
The Real Reason
Because everyone is doing it. While that’s a poor excuse for most decisions, it’s a completely legitimate one for taking advantage of Facebook Groups.
Why is it a big deal that everyone’s doing it? Because most likely there is a community of people who you could relate very well with. Everything from sports teams, business industries, advocacy around specific causes, and even women in India who like to ride motorcycles.
Chances are there is a Facebook for you whether you’re looking to network with other professionals in your area or you’re looking for other people who offer similar services or products.
It also seems that Facebook has an inkling that this product is extremely valuable for their business. They’ve updated it multiple times and Facebook has even created a standalone Groups app (iOS | Android).
What others are saying
But you don’t have to take my word for it. Here are a few opinions from some of the people I know (via Facebook Groups I’m a part of) on why they think you need to be in a Facebook Group.
I asked them one simple question, “Why do you like being a part of this group?”
A place for anyone who is working the world of digital and social media marketing.
It’s the best education on social media I’ve ever received.
Kat loves that she can…
Learn from people who actually practice what they preach.
Great way to network for remote employment opportunities and contract work.
Mandy loves groups because…
Finding the right group is like finding your tribe, it feels like home. I love all of the insight and wisdom in this group and the ability to bounce ideas off other like-minded people who are striving for similar things. Plus, more eyes and ears in the field mean we all learn about what’s new faster.
Gained more knowledge, insights and collaboration opportunities for my business within Facebook groups compared to EVERY other social network.
A support group for foster families in Milwaukee
The sanity. Honestly no one in my life (other then my husband) truly knows our family the way our connecting bridges group does. When the rest of the world looks at us sideways, this group is understanding and supportive. I cannot imagine a family that goes it alone.
Some people can’t relate to certain aspects of others lives having other people to relate too is therapeutic.
Ruby loves that she can;
Get advice from people that have been on the same situation, vent with other foster parents that will get it when we are overwhelmed
Melissa loves the group because;
I seriously wouldn’t know what to do without this family. The questions answered in minutes and just the support when you feel your world crumbling around you!
Started by author, Jon Acuff, for people wanting to achieve goals
Dave loves it because he’s
Connecting with like minding individuals from across the country to help, ask advice, and collaborate with.
Jeff is in the group…
Because if you lurk here you will get motivated. No negativity. Just Hustlers helping Hustlers.
The connectedness and community of people traveling the same direction as you. It keeps me moving towards my goals and lets me know I’m not so weird since many of you are doing the same!
