How To Join A Facebook Group
If you understand the name of a group, it's really simple: on the top left is a search box. Simply enter the name of the group there:
In this case, I'll be looking for the SupportSpace group, a Facebook group for people thinking about SupportSpace, a really cool new venue for finding and offering tech support.
Press Enter or Return after you have actually typed in the group name and it'll come up with several matches that offer you a variety of information:.
( if you wish to hack things, you can likewise develop a simple search query and add connect to your very own page or profile to let people find groups on specific subjects or associated. The URL you need to utilize is exemplified by the following:.
just remember to replace "supportspace" with whatever word or words (separated by ~ ez_ldquo+ ez_rdquo ~, not area!) you 'd choose).
At this point you can see that there are 2 coordinating groups, but the very first one appears like it wasn't entirely set up and appears to have no members.
