Facebook Group

Posted by Shikha Kedia | Posted in Social Media | Posted on 07-02-2013

Facebook Groups has been one area my clients are not sure about and don’t know why and how to use it to get maximum exposure. Though Facebook page is more elaborate and an extended version it isn’t a platform where you can communicate with a restricted audience. Its more of like advertising yourself rather than sharing knowledge.

For example one of our clients is a stock broker and wants to share tips with its members everyday. Groups were a great advantage and perfect way to communicate with its members given they were not able to share these tips via SMS recently due to stringent TRAI regulations.

BUT as we know, nothing is this world is just so perfect! One big con of using Facebook groups  is that it doesn’t have any insight section for the admin which means you will not know what kind of people are searching for your group, what sources they are coming from, which posts were popular amongst members etc. This is what makes facebook page a richer and significant platform to reach out to a bigger audience and understand trends.

Ideally Groups are useful for brands/products/service providers which want to connect or share only with a closed network.
