Facebook groups have been incredibly helpful to me over the past couple of years. I’ve gotten business guidance, help finding things in my community, found out about a newly released social media feature, you name it.

Facebook Groups were emerging as a new resource for those of us who wanted to reach our audience online where they were at already.
