The Big List Of Facebook Groups – Business And Personal Groups

List Of Facebook Groups

This is a list of groups on Facebook where you can promote your business, get to know others who are entrepreneurs, syndicate your blog, and learn how to better be a home based business owner. Some of these groups allow for link dropping and some do not. You need to check each group so that you do not spam and end up getting kicked out of the group.

As a rule of thumb, do not EVER drop links into a group using an auto poster if you are not 100% sure of what the group is all about. I recommend watching the group for at least a week to get a feeling for what it’s about and how the members interact with one another. This is CRUCIAL.

Interact Appropriately In Facebook Groups

I cannot tell you how many times I have gone into a group, not knowing what they were about and made all kinds of comment boo boos.  You don’t need to do that. If you want to participate in a Facebook Group, you need to participate according to the group’s rules and take your time easing into the group.

The tone of almost all of these groups is set from the very beginning, and you’re not going to change how people interact. You didn’t start the group. If you can just remember to treat others as you would have them to treat you, you’ll be fine.Below is a large list of the groups to which I belong.

I really don’t know why I belong to all of these groups, but I seem to have gotten into the habit of accumulating them.  Like most, normal people, I really only participate in 3-5 at any given time, and my participation seems to ebb and flow, depending on what I am doing in life and in business.

I Interact In Facebook Groups According To What I Need

Sometimes I am promoting blog articles.

Other times, I need help with a life of homeschooling situation.

This list will continue to be updated over time because new and fascinating groups continue to be created each and every day on Facebook.  Without any further explanation, here are the groups and the legend used to understand how they operate on Facebook.

Legend For My List Of Facebook Groups

  • HI = High interaction between members and lots of conversation.
  • MI = Medium interaction.  Inconsistent likes and comments between members.
  • LI = Low interaction between members.
  • LA = Links allowed.
  • NLA = No Links allowed
  • HLAO = Helpful, On-topic links allowed, only!
  • SA = Specific activity REQUIRED
  • OP = Open (People will see what you post or comments you make, they can see you are a member, and links dropped can help your indexation in the search engines.)
  • CL = Closed (People can see that you are a member, but your comments and posts only show in the feed of other members.  Links dropped do not help you with search engines.)
  • *** = Very high-quality group.  Interact with caution until you completely understand the group’s purpose and can interact based on well-established rules.

Facebook Groups Are Important To Your Social Media Marketing Life

The number in the parenthesis is the number of members at the time of writing this article.  Please don’t be a spammer in these groups.
Special Reminder:  I will add to this list regularly.  Make sure that you are already logged into Facebook so you can access the groups and request membership if you want to.  🙂

Facebook Groups Are Tools That Can Help Both Life And Business

Don’t mistreat your Facebook groups.  They can really help you in life and in business, and if you interact with the people in these groups well, you can make a name for yourself.   It doesn’t matter if you are a writer, an artist, a product creator, a parent, an educator, a medical practitioner, or any other professional or human being.  No matter who you are, groups can help you.

I will be updating these groups over time.  I could never put all of them in here at one time.  There are just too many of them.  Keep checking back for updates every few weeks.  I pray that this list of Facebook Groups has been helpful to you.  🙂

    Thanks Christi for the awesome post. I signed up to several of the groups you listed. Thanks a ton for spending so much time on this and making it easier for those of us who enjoy group memberships. Thanks a ton.

      Whoo hoo! Enjoy, Paula! 🙂

    Sue

    • C. Johnson

      You’re welcome, Sue! I’ll come back and add to it soon. Bless you! 🙂

    Hi Christi

    Thank you for all your hard work and the effort you put into this post.
    It is certainly a very useful list to have and will save a lot of people including myself a lot of time.
    You are a star!!

    • C. Johnson

      Thanks so much, Kerris! Love ya, chica! 🙂

  • http://www.angusjmcewan.com Angus J McEwan

    Hey Christi thanks for sharing your personal group list which must have taken a while to build. And having the different categories is really helpful. Angus

    • C. Johnson

      Thanks, Angus. It’s funny…as I was compiling the list, I realized that if I were looking at it on someone else’s blog, I would want the additional categories so I know what I am getting into from the start. I’m so glad you stopped by here, friend! 🙂

  • http://Stevegwalton.com Steve Walton

    Christi, what can I say except awesome info and a fabulously helpful article. Keep up the fabulous work.

    • C. Johnson

      Thanks, Steve! Now, I need a nap. lol!

  • http://stevelvernon.com Steve Vernon

    Thanks so much for this, Christi! What a helpful list, and I really appreciate the way you’ve coded them. This will give me material to work with to add to my already growing list of groups I’ve joined and syndicate to. The FB Planner app is extremely helpful in saving time to get your work out to multiple groups at once. I would encourage you and others to check it out if you’re not already familiar with it.

    • C. Johnson

      I will definitely look at that app. It would be incredibly useful to have an app like that to help me get my content syndicated quickly. Thanks for the head’s up on that! 🙂

      Thanks, Steve! I need to go on and add to it. There are soooooo many of these! 🙂

  • http://www.empowernetwork.com/celestes Celeste Smucker

    Hi Christi, Thanks for the lists…they are a valuable asset…and while I belong to quite a few I see some new ones here. I’m surprised at the small number of health groups….I would like to find a few more. One that I participate in fairly often is called The Importance: Lets Talk about Health, Wellness and finding the Remedy. It is full of interesting, folksy info with a fair amount of interaction. I visit several times a week and always find something new. A good one to add to your list. Look forward to seeing more of your posts…I am also in Networking Superstars.

    • C. Johnson

      I actually have a big list of health groups, but I made this list for a joint project and just wanted to get the bulk of business groups in here. I promise to come back to it soon! Thanks for stopping by here, Celeste!

  • http://www.paulkusemiju.wordpress.com Paul

    Hi, Christie, this is very good and highly informative. Thanks so much. will check them out.

    • C. Johnson

      Great, Paul! I am glad that this helped you!

  • http://stressandhealthonline.com/blog/ Kristen

    Wow, Christi. That is one big organized list. That must have taken some time to compile. What a great resource for all of us. Thanks so much for putting it together. I am going to bookmark it.

    • C. Johnson

      Thanks so much, Kristen!

  • http://www.mmm.sueblimely.com Sue Bride

    Thank you. This has saved me so much time in finding groups. I have been putting the task off because of this. No doubt you will see me in a lot of these groups soon.

    • C. Johnson

      I need to expand this. Thanks for the comment, Sue!
