Facebook Secret Groups
Anybody with a Facebook account has the ability to establish and utilize a Trick Group. This is not unique or offered by means of Company Pages, however is a great resource especially for small services that don't utilize tools like Salesforce, Yammer, or BaseCamp for callaboration, coordinating schedules, and sharing marketing concepts.
There are 3 kinds of Secret Groups:
- Public: anybody can see your Group and find it in search
- Closed: anyone can see your group, but only members can see and make posts
- Secret: just members can see and make posts
Trick Group Security.
- Secret Groups are not indexed by Google.
- If someone has the URL to your Trick Group they can not access without being welcomed.
- If your Secret Group URL is published in another Secret Group, the URL is still not noticeable or accessible.
Note: You will get alerts to your personal News Feed, however only you will have the ability to see them, not your Pals.
Developing a Trick Group.
You should first have an individual Facebook account to develop a Trick Group:.

- Click on Create Group.
- Name your Group and select your icon from the drop down menu.
- Include members to your Secret Group (you should be buddies with them to contribute to the group); include them to the member box.
- If you want to include members who are not your friends, produce the Group as 'Closed' first, then change the Group setting to Secret.
- Select your Personal privacy Setting and click Produce.
Below are screen shots for each action in creating your Group.
Remember your Group MUST be Closed if you are going to add members you are not pals with.
Select your Secret Group icon (this is optional).
Remember to switch your Group Setting from 'Closed" to "Secret" if you have actually invited members that you are not friends with in the previous action.
Prior to you begin utilizing your brand-new Secret Group we would suggest that you examine your Settings. The Settings icon lies on the best side of your new feed under the pictures.
Your Trick Group is now all set for personal use with your members. Start sharing photos, email addresses, and working together on tasks.
