Facebook Groups – Complete Settings

Now to alter complete settings you need to follow these steps,

Click on Gear button which is there next to the Notifications option in the group and choose “Edit Group Settings” option from the short menu.

Complete Settings

I’ll discuss each setting one by one now.

Group Name – You can change the name of the group and also the icon that you linked with the group from these options.

Privacy – I already discussed about this setting when I told you how to create Facebook Group. So look for the details in above sub heading.

Membership Approval – If you choose first option then any member of the group whether he/she is admin or not, can approve any new member’s request to join the group. But if you choose second option then only admin will be allowed to approve the join request on any new member.

Group Address – You can add custom name which will be there in the URL of the group. You can use this option to change the group URL but nothing will happen if you don’t use it. In short, it depends on you whether you want to have a custom URL or not.

Description – You can add description of the group which users can read before joining the group. This description will tell them what this group is all about.

Posting Permissions – This is one of the very important settings of the group. If you choose the first option then any member can post anything they want in the group but if you choose the second then only the admins of the groups will be allowed to post in the group.

It depends on you whether you want to allow members to post in the group or not. So use this setting according to this requirement.

Post Approval – If you check this option then all the posts needs to be approved always by the admins and if uncheck then members can post anything anytime they want to.
