What are facebook groups


Facebook and privacy: an insurmountable contradiction?

Not that new at all: the Facebook badges. The, in German, Facebook badges come across us mainly in the groups. That Facebook with falling interaction rates (despite the continuing increase in user numbers) is not new and has been discussed several times, one of the main reasons, according to many experts, is the increased sensitivity towards one's own data and privacy.

This is exactly what the group took as an opportunity to reflect on the groups, because: These tend to suggest one among like-minded people Feeling of security and closed space - We don't really believe whether this is really the case, because the exchange still takes place on Facebook. Be that as it may, in order to make activities in Facebook groups more attractive, their interface has been revised and, among other things. the badges came out as well.

All of this should, according to Facebook, the Community building and also serve the dynamics and recognizability in the groups. As an agency, we are often in conflict as to whether we are a) allowed to join groups - not everyone allows this, and when this is done, whether b) posting is allowed - of course everyone can delete admin posts or you should contact the guidelines adhere to what can be posted and how often. But nevertheless we finally know that the members notice very quickly whether there is a contribution from another page offer added value at all or show hidden advertising.
