You may have noticed a nifty new feature on Facebook where business owners are featuring their Facebook Groups and Facebook Business Pages on their personal profiles. You may have also searched endlessly for how to do it or tried on mobile with no luck.
I’ve got you sister!
This is what this awesome new feature looks like in action.
This is super simple and I’m going to walk you through the steps.
STEP 1: HOP ON TO YOUR COMPUTER
You can’t pull this one off on mobile yet so you’ll need to hop on Facebook via your PC or Mac.
STEP 2: GO TO YOUR PERSONAL FACEBOOK PROFILE
STEP 3: GET INTO THE EDIT FEATURED AREA
Head down to where it says “Edit Featured” and click on that button.
STEP 4: CHOOSE THE GROUPS YOU WANT TO FEATURE
Once you’re inside you may think you only have the choice to choose photos as always but that’s not true!
On the right hand side, scroll down past all of your photos and you will find a listing of ALL groups that you belong to including your own. Note they are alphabetized so if you don’t see yours keep scrolling until you get to it.
Once you get to your own group click on it. You will see it added over to your featured items on the left.
STEP 5: CHOOSE THE FACEBOOK BUSINESS PAGES YOU WANT TO FEATURE
Right after groups you will find ALL pages you follow. In this section, they actually seem to put your own pages first (makes sense) so you can easily select what you want to feature without scrolling endlessly or searching.
Here you will also simply click on the ones you want to feature and you will see them show up on the left.
The strategist in me feels it’ s important to mention to you to consider impact and not overwhelming your audience.
Where do you want to send people for the most impact RIGHT NOW? Do you need them on your page and in a specific group because that’s where all of your launch goodness will be? I highly suggest only having those places featured for now. If your group is most important to you, I’m not opposed to just showing that group to ensure that is where people click.
You can change it whenever you want to so really leverage this great new feature to serve your needs!
STEP 6: SAVE AND DOUBLE CHECK
Now it’s time to click Save and then you can go back to your profile and view what your new fancy schmancy features look like!
Congratulations! You will officially be one of the first to use this awesome feature.
