Where do I find the group rules and member questions for my Facebook Group?

In the world of Facebook groups, establishing clear guidelines and vetting new members are essential steps to cultivating a thriving community. In this episode of Ask Linda, I will guide you through setting your member questions and guidelines so that you can create a wonderful community for your business.

Understanding Group Rules

When it comes to group rules, clarity is key. These rules serve as the foundation for your community, outlining expectations and standards of behaviour. 

To access and set up your group rules, simply navigate to the admin tab and look for the sidebar. There, you’ll find the option to create rules that align with the values and culture of your group.

While group rules can vary widely depending on the nature of your community, include key elements such as showing respect, following guidelines outlined in pinned announcements, and common reasons for post rejection like limiting promotions. 

Implementing Membership Questions

In addition to group rules, membership questions help vet new members and ensure they’re a good fit for your community. These questions provide valuable information on who your potential members are and why they wish to join your group.

Keep your membership questions concise and informative. Typical questions may include asking about the member’s name, their business or profession, reasons for wanting to join the community, and their location (to understand time zones). 

Additionally, integrating a checkbox for members to agree to the group rules during the application process helps support their commitment to following community guidelines.

Putting It Into Practice

By setting up clear group rules and thoughtful membership questions, you lay the groundwork for a vibrant and engaged Facebook community. These elements not only foster a sense of belonging but also help maintain a positive and respectful atmosphere for all members.
