#30Waysin30Days SHARE A MEMORY - Create a Facebook Group

After a brief hiatus, we return with another suggestion for sharing family memories. Facebook is arguably the largest social media space, so why not create a Facebook Group for your family to share memories about family members?

Remember you are going to set up a GROUP not a PAGE, to more readily encourage posts from your group members.

TYPES OF Facebook groups:
  • Ol' Myrt here has her genealogy group on Facebook for my DearREADERS.  It is public, but any posts must be approved by admins, to keep the spammers out.
  • We have a private Orcas Island Family Group - where we post all important communication before during and after a family retreat. This has proved more reliable than text messages and email. We know which ferry to meet on, and where to gather for dinner.
  • We planned a week of family meals when on retreat to my sister's Timberlake cabin in the woods in a private, family members-only, Facebook group.
