Love it or hate it, one can not do without Facebook these days. More than just a social network, Facebook is a crossroad where private and business life collide, which is why it’s important to use it in our daily tasks. With its regular algorithm changes, Facebook is encouraging us to use it in more frequent and intensive ways. Lately, it obviously wishes both people and businesses to gravitate to blog groups, as a way to connect and engage with the community within a certain topic. So, naturally, today’s post is about Facebook groups for bloggers. Which ones are the best for you to join, what can you expect from them, and why join in the first place. Sit back, grab some coffee or tea and enjoy this reading.
What are blogger groups on Facebook?
Remember forums? Blog groups are exactly that but on Facebook. It’s meant to be a separate space where you can share photos and make plans with just the people you want. Nowadays, it evolved to a sub-forum where people gather around one (or a few) specific topics and ideas. They do that to form a community, discuss relevant matters and/or boost engagement to each other.
Why join a Facebook group for bloggers?
In today’s world, no matter how well you write and how good you’re in telling stories, optimizing content and reaching people that are your audience, help is more than appreciated. And those Facebook groups are just that – help in many ways and forms. Here’s why Facebook groups are so awesome. From promoting your content, listening to other people’s experiences, getting ideas for your next writing… those blogger groups (or promotion groups as they also call them) are a great source and a place to be a part of.
Why am I such a huge fan of Facebook groups for bloggers?
Whether you’re a novice or an experienced blogger, being a part of these groups, help you give more structure to your blog, connect you with the relevant niche people, help you network and build a name for yourself. Just as WordPress community, Facebook groups exists as a place where people can connect and help each other in a mutually beneficial way. They are huge community-building tools as well as a source for numerous business opportunities. That is why it’s important to pick and choose the ones that suit you, so you start boosting your community and presence even more!
General Facebook groups rules
Each blogging group has its own rules, but there are some general ones you should follow when inside. Don’t be a „link dump“ – a person who uses groups just to self-promote and not engage in any other way. Do this, and you’ll be banned pretty soon. Also, do not provoke or encourage bashing of any kind; be polite and helpful. Don’t spam – whether it’s your content or a curated one. And always, by all means, always take time to read the pinned etiquette post. Admins took time to write it down, the least you can do is read it and oblige by those rules.
