To create a private Facebook group, create the group and set the privacy to closed or secret, depending on your preference. In a closed group, only current members can see what is posted, but anyone can ask or be invited to join, and anyone can see the group’s name and members. A secret group is completely private and members must be invited. See details in #2 below.
- Click the blue down arrow at the top right of Facebook and select Create Group (see figure 1).
- Select your group preferences: enter your group name, add group members, and then choose the privacy settings for your group (see Figure 2). For privacy setting details, click here.
- Click Create
- Once you create your group, you personalize it by uploading a cover photo and adding a description.
