How I Set Up My Class Facebook Page
I have been getting a lot of questions about how to set up a class FB page so here is what I did…
First of all I used my personal Facebook page and created a CLOSED group. A lot of people have questions about what parents can see. The actual answer is it depends on your settings. Parents can see exactly what anyone searching your profile could see. If you have your info only available to friends (which you should) then they will only see very basic info. Adding them to your closed group DOES NOT give them access to your wall. A closed group requires people to request to join thus providing you control of who can see the content.
To start click create group on your page
1)Blue Arrow: Pick a name for your group. I picked a rather obscure name since the group name is searchable.
2)Yellow Arrow: Pick an icon for your page. This in not the profile image just the small icon on your groups list.
3)Green Arrow: Add one person to the group. I was not able to add without picking one person to start.
4) Red Arrow: Pick Closed group. My first thought was secret but that setting requires people to be your friend before joining the group. With closed they can join w/out being your friend.
Click Create :)
Make sure the box is checked with red arrow. You want everyone to require permission before joining. You can also change your group icon here, check the group security setting (open,closed,secret) and change the name of the group.
All the important settings are done. Don’t forget to change the profile image by clicking on the image next to your group name.
