How To Share A Post To A Group On Facebook: Step by Step Guide

This post may contain affiliate links for more info visit my disclosure page.

In this post, I will show you how to share a post to a group on Facebook manually and automatically using one of the best software there is for social media management.

There are things you’ll also need to know about Facebook groups before you share posts to them so that you can do it safely and not get banned.

Sharing your posts to Facebook groups is one of the best ways to get targeted traffic to your posts, offers, and products.

Here is how I’ll explain this whole process:




Before we start, I want everyone to be on the same page about how Facebook works so I want to explain each of these elements:

  • Facebook Accounts
  • Facebook Pages
  • Facebook Groups

Facebook Personal Account LoginFacebook Accounts

When you sign up for a Facebook account, you have to sign up with your personal information so I will call this your Facebook personal account.

Your personal account is where it all starts at and from there you can do all the other functions in Facebook such as sharing, creating groups, sharing to groups, building a fan page, advertise, etc.

This is the part of Facebook where you connect with your friends so you will have a friends list here which will make up your news feed.

Your Facebook personal account has many privacy settings so this account can be totally private and all anyone can see is your Facebook profile picture and your cover photo.

On the other hand, Facebook Pages are public and always public, they are also called Fan Pages as well.

The Facebook Pages are created for mainly businesses, blogs, bands, charities, or artists.  They serve as a place for your fans to connect with you without having them being on your friends list and seeing any of your private information on your personal account.

You can post on your Facebook Pages as your business so you can update your fans with all aspects of your business and keep connected.

They can also send you private messages to your Facebook Page so you can see that each Page can be stand alone and you control it on the back end.


Facebook Groups

Now we come to Facebook Groups, these can be created by anyone and you can access that from the same menu as creating a FB Page, two links below the “Create Page” in the image above, you will see “Create Group”.

What’s so attractive about Facebook Groups is that they have a very targeted audience and people have made a lot of money in building a good following in their Groups.

The only thing about posting to them is that they may have a lot of rules in the Group you want to post to so you always have to make sure you’re allowed to share the posts you want to post there.

After you join a Facebook Group, you have to check their guidelines for the Group which is usually in the pinned post or in the Group description the right side of the Group page.

Make sure you know the type of content you’re allowed to share as well as how often.  Some Groups have very strict rules and some have more lax rules, so you just need to check first.

Once you know you’re allowed to share posts there, then you’re good to go and you should always follow the Group’s guidelines to prevent yourself from being banned from it.




Before you can share any posts to any groups, you need to join it first.

Here Are The Steps To Join a Facebook Group:

Step 1:

In the Facebook search bar, type in the topic you’re interested in, I’ll use “DIY craft projects” as an example.

Step 2:

You’ll then see all different kinds of results, but you only want Groups, so click on “Groups” in the menu just below the search bar.

Step 3:

Now you will see all the Groups that has to do with your search term and you can click on the “Join” button to request to be a member of that group.

You will need to wait for the administrators to approve you, which is most of the time, or sometimes you can get approved right away.

Once you have been added to the group, make sure you read their guidelines and know what you’re allowed to do in the group so you don’t get kicked out and get banned from it.



Here Are The Steps To Share A Post to A Group:

The following steps are the same whether you are sharing a post from your personal account or from a Fan Page.  I’m using my Facebook Fan Page for this blog as an example below.

Step 1:

Go to the post you want to share to the Facebook Group, click on the “Share” link at the bottom of the post:

Facebook Share Post


Step 2:

A pop up menu will come up, you will need to click on the top left drop down menu and select “Share in a Group“:

Facebook Select Share in a Group


Step 3:

You will then type in the exact name name of the group if you know it, as you start typing the list of groups that you belong to that has the name you’re typing in will show up.

Choose the Group you want to share to, type something in the description (you can also leave it blank as well) and click on “Post” button on the bottom right.

You have just shared a Post to a Group on Facebook!  I hope now you’ll have the grasp of sharing your posts, whether a post from your own timeline or from your Facebook Page, you can do so to a number of groups per day.

I’ve been sharing one post to 30 groups a day and that brings traffic to my blog more than anything else for my social media platforms!

You can certainly do this for affiliate links and earn commissions, if allowed by the group that is.

That’s why it’s best to share to your website first so that:

  1. Your audience to learn more about product from your blog post;
  2. You get more chances of sharing your affiliate products this way vs posting affiliate links directly to the Facebook Groups.

    My share options are different, no group option, just:

    Share Now (Friends)
    Send as Message
    Share on a friend’s timeline.

      If you can let me know Jacbec where you are on Facebook when you click on share options, then maybe I can see where that is and why you don’t see the group option.

      Make sure the original post is set to public and not private of any kind or else you can’t share to groups, the posts must be set to public to be able to share to others that are not on your friends list.

      Hope this helps,
