  • 12. Groups
    • Groups provide a closed space for small groups of people to communicate about shared interests. Groups can be created by anyone.
    • Privacy : In addition to an open setting, more privacy settings are available for groups. In secret and closed groups, posts are only visible to group members.
    • Audience: Group members must be approved or added by other members. When a group reaches a certain size, some features are limited. The most useful groups tend to be the ones you create with small groups of people you know.
    • Communication: In groups, members receive notifications by default when any member posts in the group. Group members can participate in chats, upload photos to shared albums, collaborate on group docs, and invite all members to group events.
