LessonHow to Use the Facebook Group

Video Transcript:

Hello everyone! In this video, you will learn how to use the Facebook group for the blogging course.

In your Facebook account, navigate to ‘groups’ in the left hand column of your page. Click ‘more’, and select ‘Blogging for Therapists’. This will bring you to our page. Once you’re added to the private Facebook group, please briefly familiarize yourself with the platform. If you have accessed it before but are experiencing difficulty, I will happily show you how to find it, and how you can easily find it in the future.

I recommend adding this group to your favorites. To do this, navigate over to this little button here with three different dots and click ‘Add to Favorites’. This will automatically place the Blogging for Therapists course group in your left side navigation mark at the top. You will see here at the top, it says favorites, and you can see at the bottom is Blogging for Therapists. That way when you login on your Facebook page you will be able to easily find the Blogging for Therapists group.

Next, please turn on your notifications so that you are informed each time someone posts a question, an image, etc. to the Facebook group. The way that you do that is see here, mine says notifications with a little check mark. That means that my notifications are turned on, if yours looks different, just click on ‘notifications’ and either turn them off or select your other preferred options, which may include ‘friends post’, ‘highlights’ and ‘all posts’.

I highly recommend selecting ‘all posts’ so that you will be notified whenever anyone posts in the group. These notifications will appear just like any standard Facebook notification in the upper right hand corner of the screen under the little blue earth. Simply click the globe icon to review you drop-down list of notifications. If one of them is from the blogging course, please select it to navigate to new posts or comments on our page.

During our next segment, we will learn how to comment on someone else’s post. To comment on a specific post, please navigate to the post and click ‘write a comment’. For this example we will comment on Becky Degrossa’s group photo. All you need to do is click ‘write a comment’ directly beneath the post and type your note. When you’re finished press ‘enter’ on your keyboard, and your comment will appear for the rest of the group to see.

If you want to add a brand new post to the Facebook group, all you have to do is navigate to the top of the Facebook page and click ‘write post’, and type your message into the text box. Feel free to say hello, ask a question or for clarification, whatever you need, there.

Please note that the Facebook group is private. Whatever you post here, no one but the people in the group can see it, none of your other Facebook friends, only the people added to the group itself. You don’t need to worry about your other Facebook friends seeing posts to this page. Only people in this group can access these posts.

If you have any questions about how to use the Facebook group, how to post, anything like that, please let me know. I am more than happy to help.

Have a great day!
