Overview of Groups on Facebook
Through Facebook groups, users with shared interests can interact, educate, entertain and even sell products to each other.
There are two types of Facebook groups based on privacy settings: public and private. The public group is open to anyone, and any Facebook user can see who is in the group, post in the group, and see group posts on their feed.
Users can only join a private group via an invite from a group member or requesting to join the group, after which the group admins can decide to accept or decline the request.
With private groups, only members can post in the group, see who is in the group and see group posts on their feed.
