Do you want to post as a page on a Facebook group, and you don’t know how? Keep reading because I’ll tell you all you need to know.
There are two major requirements for posting as a page on a Facebook group:
- Being the “admin” on that group
- Having the group and the page linked beforehand
If you’re not an admin on the group, you won’t be able to post as a page on the group. Not even moderators can do that.
Read below for interesting facts about posting as a page on a Facebook group!
Link Your Page to Your Facebook Group
Assuming you’re an admin on the Facebook group, you’ll need to link the page to the group first. To do this, follow the steps below:
1. Go to “Groups“
The first step is opening Facebook, entering your credentials, and opening the “Groups” option on the left-hand sidebar.
Under your profile name, on the left, you’ll see several options, including “Find friends“, “Marketplace“, “Groups“, “Watch“, and more.
Open the “Groups” tab and continue with the guide!
2. Open your group
After you select the “Groups” option, a new side section will open, showing you all the groups you’re a part of, and the groups you own.
Select the group you want to post on as a page, and then continue with the guide. Remember that you can link to your Page from the Group, and not the other way around.
3. Click on “Manage“
Once you open your Facebook group, look on the left-hand side for an overview of your group. Under the “Invite” button and next to the “Browse” button, you should find the “Manage” button.
This will let you access the group’s settings and customize your group’s preferences. Click on it to continue.
4. Go to “Group Settings“
After you click on “Manage“, several new options will appear on the left side. You should immediately see the “Group Settings” under the “Settings” header.
Scroll down until you find it and then click on it. This will open more settings where you can add your Page to the Group.
5. Click on “Linked Pages“
Once you open the “Group Settings“, scroll to the bottom until you find the “Manage advanced settings” header.
Under it, you should see the “Linked Pages” option. Click on the small pencil to the right of this option and continue reading!
6. Link your Page
After you click on “Linked Pages“, a new window will appear. You should find all the pages you own under the “Pages you manage” header.
Find the page you want to link to your group and click on “Link, ” the right button. Once you click on it, your Page will be linked to your Group, and you can post as a page on the group.
7. Confirm the linking process
Finally, you need to confirm the linking of the Page with the Group by clicking on “Link“. After you do this, you can post it as a page on your group.
Post as a Page on Your Group
After you link the Page to the Group, it’s very easy to post it as a page on the group. Follow the steps below to do this:
1. Open your group
Go back to your Facebook feed and look in the top-right corner. You should see the “Your Pages and Profiles” header. You’ll find your group under this header.
Click on it to go to your Group’s interface.
2. Select your online persona
Once you open the group interface, click on your profile picture in the top-right corner. Once you click on it, a menu with several options should appear.
This is where you can select the online person to use on your group. You can use your regular profile or your Page’s profile.
Select your Page to switch to another persona. Now, whenever you post something on the group, you’ll be doing it as a Page, not as an individual.
3. Post something
Now, all you need to do is post anything on the group. You’ll notice that next to the post box, you’ll find your group’s icon, showing that you’ll post as a page on the group.
So, there you have it. To post as a Page on a Facebook Group, you need to be an admin on the group and link the Page and the Group.
Then, select a person to post as, and then post something. The new posts will appear from the perspective of the Page instead of your regular profile.
