Also, there are more than 10 million Facebook groups!

Get ready to grow your reach.

It gets better: When you use Facebook groups, you can grow your reach organically.

While others pay for Facebook ads, when you use Facebook groups, you can grow your exposure for free.

Perhaps you are looking for 18+ groups on Facebook.

You’re in luck. All of these groups are 18+ Facebook groups. One of the groups is even for women of midlife. Clearly, that is definitely an 18+ Facebook group.

UPDATED INFORMATION: January 2022 Now that Facebook rebranded as Meta, we will see how important Facebook groups are to Facebook’s new brand.

Considering the popularity of Facebook groups, I predict Facebook groups are here to stay. Let’s explore how they can help you.

Facebook 18+ Groups

(Update: June 2020) Recently, I asked Instagrammers which they prefer: Facebook groups or Quora Spaces.

Do you want to know how they responded?

To my surprise, an overwhelming majority chose Quora Spaces.

There are many advantages to using social media for business. One of them is the potential for businesses to boost their exposure.

Some Facebook groups have tens of thousands of members. There is no better way to extend your reach organically.

How to Join Facebook Groups

Use the Facebook search bar to find groups that are interesting to you.

Type the niche + group. Groups in that content area should populate.

Facebook has groups for every demographic. For instance, I belong to a groups with women from Southern California and another group of midlife women. I also belong to a group of California freelance writers.

This should give you an idea of the kind of diversity of Facebook groups.

Click on the group of interest. When the groups populate, click on a group that sounds interesting. Check to make sure the group is active. For instance, look to see the last post. Was it hours ago or weeks?

When you find an active group that interests you, in the top right-hand corner of the screen, you should see the word “join.” Click and answer the questions that follow.

The questions normally ask if you will follow the rules of the group. Sometimes, they will want you to follow the group moderator. Answer “yes” to each question or risk getting turned down.

You may have to wait for an answer, but I have never had to wait long.

Facebook Groups That Allow Weekly Self-Promotion

To find these groups:

  1. Go to https://www.facebook.com/.
  2. Type in the name of the group as it appears below.
  3. Click Groups.
  4. Click Join.
  5. If the group admin has questions for you to answer, answer them. Your membership will be pending in most cases. In other cases, you’ll be admitted right away.

Facebook Groups That Don’t Allow Promotion

These Facebook groups are intended for bloggers to get advice and support only.

You may not promote your blog post links here:

Best eCommerce Groups

When asked to suggest the best eCommerce groups on this list, I recommended:

Living the Laptop Life
Blogger and Biz Babes
Raelyn’s Online Business Friends

Facebook Groups for Adults Only

Just like on Reddit, there are adult groups on Facebook for 18+ years of age. 

Reddit has Reddit NSFW Meta groups, and Facebook has Facebook adults groups. 

Go to the search bar. Type what you are looking for + groups to find adult groups on Facebook.

You even find adult groups on Facebook using Facebook Messenger to conduct their mature chats.

Facebook Group Tools

UPDATE April 2022

First, The MaherPost invented a Facebook Group Poster. This tool automates your Facebook group posting by scheduling your Facebook posts for you. Using a Facebook group post scheduler can save you from group posting mishaps. The Facebook Group Poster is a paid tool. Note: I have not personally used the Facebook Group Poster.

Next, in order to keep these Facebook groups organized, I keep a list of Facebook groups in my phone app. I use the Pages app, but you can use any method of organization.

Many people use an Excel spreadsheet to keep their groups organized.

On my list, I have the name of the group and the number of members. When I’m rushing, I don’t post to smaller groups for lack of time. 

I also have the groups numbered. I post to half the groups at one time, so Facebook doesn’t consider me a spammer and put me in Facebook jail. Since no one knows how to get out of Facebook Jail, you want to follow this method.

Secret Facebook Groups

March 2021 Update

Are you aware there are secret Facebook groups? There are.

When admins start Facebook groups, they have the option of keeping the group public or private. If they choose to keep it private, the public doesn’t know about what are now secret Facebook groups.

The advantage of secret Facebook groups:

Why would administrators want to keep Facebook groups secret?

First, when the group becomes too large, the admin switches “Public” to “Private” and everyone in the group gets notified about the change in status. 

Admins must manage the group members. For instance, they don’t want inappropriate content posted. If the group contains too many members, managing them becomes more difficult. 

Next, some admins use the Facebook group as a perk. For instance, Ahrefs and Neil Patel have secret Facebook groups for exclusive members who sign up for their services. 

October 2020 Update 1:

Recent data: Since people began sheltering in place due to the Coronavirus pandemic, over 1.8 billion people are using Facebook groups. The use of Facebook groups is on the rise. 

While Facebook reports an addition of over 4 million Facebook groups over the last year, many Facebook groups have been removed. This is due to their affiliations with the racist QAnon organization. 

At its Communities Summit, Facebook announced changes to its Facebook groups which will stress the advantages of the groups which clearly are being used to stay connected during the pandemic. 

October 2020 Update 2

Facebook is expanding its use of television commercials to advertise Facebook groups.

September 2020:

Ahrefs released the best 4 Facebook groups for SEOs:

Affiliate SEO Mastermind

SEO Signals Lab

The Proper SEO Group

SEO Secrets by Detailed.com

Members range from 11,000+ to 61,000+.

July 2020: In 2018, Facebook started shareable links. This means anyone in a group can invite someone to the group with a shareable link. They can use the link in an email or anywhere they wish to send the invitation to the group. 

No discussion of Facebook groups would be complete without mentioning Facebook groups are meeting in Facebook Messenger. You can chat on Facebook Messenger with one person or in a group. You can send an unlimited number of messages daily.

Also, Facebook started Messenger Rooms this past spring. You can chat in a group as large as 50 people in these Rooms. 

June 2020: Update 1

Since Facebook just started allowing emojis, you can put emojis in your promotional content when you promote your blog posts in Facebook groups. 


According to research, emojis boost engagement. Try putting them in along with your promotional content, and see the results. 

Notice what occurred when I chose the emoji with the smiley face and the hearts in the eyes. The emoji filled the screen.

June 2020: Update 2

We Love Blogging is a new Facebook group. Since they are just getting started, their promotion days vary.

As with other Facebook groups, you need to follow the rules. This group has a specific rule unique to other Facebook groups: You must use relevant hashtags with your promotional content.

May 2020:

This spring, Facebook started airing commercials promoting Facebook groups. The most memorable commercial shows a group of kazoo players. The message: If Facebook has a group for kazoo players, it has a group for everyone. 

March 2020:

In the event you are reluctant to join Facebook groups due to founder Mark Zuckerberg’s politics, you might rethink your decision. 

Zuckerberg’s response to the Coronavirus has been heartwarming. You can read all he’s doing to help in this post about Facebook’s advantages and disadvantages

Update February 2019:

Despite Facebook losing users due to last year’s data breaches, Facebook profits are soaring according to NBC. My point: I still recommend you join Facebook groups to promote your blog posts.

This post is uniquely different from all I’ve ever shared.

It’s not an article.

It’s not a list of tips.

It’s not a case study.

Today’s post is a list– a list of Facebook groups that allow you to promote your blog posts.

When I posted about a StumbleUpon group I am a member of, everyone thought it was my group.

There was much interest in joining that Facebook group. I know because readers thought it was my group and expressed great interest in joining.

In my article, This is How Facebook Can Always Help You Blog Better, I explained promoting in Facebooks groups is an effective way to grow your blog.

Today, I am posting all my Facebook groups that you can join that will allow you to leave a link and promote your blog posts.

This method is how I’ve grown my blog, and if you follow the strategies in this post, you can grow your blog this way as well.

The Value of Facebook Groups

When asked on Quora why I recommend people use social media groups, I answered with Facebook groups in mind:

Groups enable you to do the following:

Find like-minded thinkers.

Find like-minded content creators.

Find your tribe. While that may sound cliche, many are sheltering-in-place alone. Finding a tribe in a social media group enables you to feel less alone, less isolated.

Direct marketing is easier when you have a group to market to. More and more social media sites are delving into the eCommerce world.

Also, Facebook groups have #PromoDays. These groups allow you to market your goods and services without making you feel like a spammer.

When you market on social media, connect to users on social media sites, and then you discover interest they have in your products or services, you can follow up with a direct message.

Groups aren’t going anywhere. In fact, Facebook just started promoting its groups on television commercials” (Source).

Comments from Facebook group members about the value of Facebook groups:

  • You get an instant connection to like-minded bloggers. – Jen
  • Facebook groups have been a great help to me! Just about everyone wants to help promote others. – Vickie

Consider these comments posted in the Bloggers Mastermind Group:

I am really excited to say that I am officially launching my new lifestyle + design blog on January 2nd! Right now, I’m in the final stages of preparing for the launch, and I wanted to ask, what are your tips to having a really successful launch day, week, and month?

Thanks for any insights you bring.

Here is the answer the blogger was given by a member of the group:

I would get into all the blog promo groups. 

Facebook groups have been an enormous asset in growing my blog.

Look at this screenshot:

Facebook groups help bloggers

As you can see, I received 115 page views coming to my blog from Facebook. Look at the three posts that each received over 100 views that day. I promoted all of them in Facebook groups that allow self-promotion.

My experience is not isolated. The Gay Dad blog reports the same success with Facebook groups.

I once tried recommending a blogger for a Facebook group. Here is what I was told:

I can’t add her without her knowledge. I had one before this from someone else, and it was embarrassing when she came into the group and said she didn’t want to be a member. Sorry, Janice, I know you had good intentions, but without her consent, I won’t add her.

Clearly, my days of recommending bloggers for Facebook groups are behind me. Now my readers will have to request joining the groups without my intervention.

You do have to make a request to join. Getting in is easy. I have never been turned down for a group I was trying to enter.

[Note: All I ask is that you right-click and open a new window or tab when you check out these wonderfully supportive groups. If you don’t, my bounce rate is going to plummet.]

Facebook Groups that Allow Daily Self-Promotion

These Facebook groups allow self-promotion every day:

UPDATE: Did you note some of these groups were archived after the original publication of this post?

I received a question after the Blog Share group was archived:


“Hi Janice,

Have you ever heard of a group blog on Facebook being archived? I show archive on Blog Share and seen nowhere to post. I have contacted Admin in the meantime waiting for a response.”

Me: “An archived group means it’s no longer taking submissions. They saved the old content and archived it.

The group is closed. I tried going there to promote as well which is how I know.”

Additional Ways to Find Facebook Groups

  • You can also go to the Facebook search bar. Type in the name of your niche + groups. Groups in your niche will come up. See if they allow self-promotion. Even if they don’t, you’ll meet like-minded bloggers. Comment on their blogs. If they return the favor, they could become new readers.
  • Also, you can also go to the Facebook search bar, type your niche + group plus your location. I’m in a California group and a Southern California group since that’s where I live.

Facebook groups help #bloggers

Facebook Group Tips for Moderators

According to the Social Media Marketing Talk Show Podcast, Facebook saw many groups fold since the moderators of Facebook groups felt their groups were too big to manage.

Facebook recently hosted a Facebook Groups Summit and is offering group moderators tools to manage their groups.

There is also talk of Facebook groups holding a Q and A (Question and Answer) session each month.


  • Consider this comment from a blogger who discovered this is how I grew my readership:

Your FB method is amazing.

He then proceeded to interview me about my technique of growing my blog.

Here is an excerpt from the interview:

Do you target creating content for a certain number of groups or build a labyrinth of groups that are targeted to your niche?

My answer:

Regarding targeted content, I produce the content, then find a Facebook group that matches it and then I promote there.
The only two I change are the marketing groups. I don’t always blog about marketing. If I don’t, I won’t promote there.

The action is in groups. This is true in Google Plus and Linkedin, and on Group Boards on Pinterest. It’s true pretty much everywhere. Facebook has a very robust group culture. Find groups of interest or create a group.

  • The Essential Website blog goes as far as to call joining Facebook groups “a craze” and adds this craze has been going on for a long time.

Concerns About Facebook Groups

The tide has turned away from Facebook to such an extent that in recent years, articles offering Facebook group alternatives are on the rise.

There are disadvantages as well as advantages to using Facebook:

  • Promoting in Facebook groups can be time-consuming. In addition to posting your blog post link, you should write a short snippet of what your post is about to let other users of the Facebook groups know if your post is an article they’d want to read.
  • Also, you shouldn’t just “link drop,” even if there are no rules saying you can’t. The appeal of Facebook groups goes beyond the potential for blog traffic. Facebook’s fun lies in connecting with other bloggers. For example, you can comment on their posts and share their writing on your social media.

The solution: You don’t have to post in all of them. Try promoting your posts in a few and see if they give you enough return on your time invested. Then, you can try others.

Also, if you join and post to the largest Facebook groups, you’ll get a higher return on your time invested (ROI) in promotion.

  • Another concern stems from the rules some Facebook groups might have. Be aware of them before you apply to join the group or post there. These groups may have rules you must follow. For example, about half ask you to leave your link in a thread for that day. If you don’t, your post link could be deleted, and you might risk expulsion from the group. The Blogging Anarchy group actually boasts that it has no rules since so many Facebook groups do.

Facebook Messenger Group Links


Have you ever wondered, “Are there Facebook Messenger Group Links for me to join?”

Yes! There are Facebook Messenger Group links you can join.

First, let’s explore the meaning of the “Facebook Messenger Group link.”

What is a Facebook Messenger Group Link?

A Facebook Messenger Group Link is a URL that allows you to invite others to join a specific group chat on Messenger. This link simplifies the process of adding new members to the group without needing to manually invite each person.

To use a Messenger Group Link:

  1. Generate Link: As an admin, tap on the group chat’s name, then tap “Invite Link” to create the link.
  2. Sharing: Share the generated link with individuals you want to add to the group. They can join by clicking the link.
  3. Link Management: Admins can control link-sharing settings, turning them on or off as needed.

Using Messenger Group Links provides a convenient way to expand group membership, streamlining the invitation process.

For a visual guide, you can watch tutorials like How to Use Group Invitation Links On Messenger.

More Facebook Groups for Older Adults

Did you know that there are Facebook Meetup Groups?

My adult niece joined a Board Games group on Facebook. She explained to me how she found the group. She reported that she clicked the Facebook Events tab to find adult groups in her area. She made a close friend from the group. They socialize outside of the group as well as get together with the group to play board games.

Click Pin to Shortcuts.

The End of Facebook Groups?

July 2020:

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg reportedly lost 7 billion dollars when advertisers who normally would pay to advertise on Facebook in July decided to pull their advertising money.

The reason for the grievance against Facebook is being called “Hate for Profit.” Unhappy with Zuckerberg’s response to racist content being left on Facebook, brands such as Coca-cola and Verizon are pulling up stakes.

What does this have to do with Facebook groups? Some people predict this exodus signals the beginning of the end of Facebook. I disagree based on the strength of Facebook groups. As indicated earlier in this article, Facebook groups prove such an asset for Zuckerberg, he now advertises groups on television commercials.

March 2024

Facebook users won’t be able to post content to Facebook groups using third-party tools any longer.

    brilliant advice and info… I would never have thought of this. Should have, because I use FB promo sites!

    • Janice Wald

      Thank you for the wonderful compliment on my article! I am glad I could help by suggesting new Facebook groups for you.

      Hi John,
      These groups will save you time by amplifying your reach.

  4. Stephanie Lewis

    Janice, this was stupendous! I didn’t know about any of these Facebooks except for the Midlife one! Also did I know you live in So Cal too? Maybe I did and forgot, hence why I hang out on Midlife Facebook page. 😉 I am in Carlsbad, where are you? Really loved this post. Ps. Everyone should ask to be added to Beyond Your Bloggers on Facebook. You can promote there but beyond that, it’s a game changer for getting your work published on other sites. It’s how I got my start being paid to blog! Susan Macarelli is amazing, just like you Janice! Have a great weekend.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Stephanie,
      I’m south of you. I’m just north of the San Fernando Valley in Santa Clarita. I’ve been to Carlsbad!
      Thanks for the suggestion. I checked out the group just to find I’m already a member! I promoted there after reading your comment.
      Great to hear from you. Thanks for the kind words.

      • Little Miss Menopause

        How funny! Did you ever go to Legoland? I grew up in Northridge. On another note, when I left both these comments, I filled out the CommentLove but my name doesn’t get highlighted. Odd! Keep up all the brilliance!

        • Janice Wald

          Hi Stephanie,
          I work in Northridge! Yes, I’ve been to Legoland! I wonder why. I’ll see if I can investigate.

  5. Fabiola Rodriguez

    Very helpful post, as usual! I found Facebook groups very helpful when I started blogging, and it’s very true the value lies in engagement, not just link dropping.

    I also admin a blogging Facebook group, Share Your Blog Posts + Tips and Tricks

    We allow self-promotion but also encourage engagement and discussion. Hope to see more bloggers there!

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Fabi,
      Thank you for writing. I didn’t know you were the admin of a blogging group on Facebook. I clicked your link and asked to join. Thanks for letting us know about it. I’m looking forward to being in your group.

  6. Yolanda

    Great post Janice! Joining FB Groups was a game changer for me as most of my subscribers came from groups, when I first started out. Quite a few FB Groups you listed I had not heard of until now so thank you for this. I would also like to recommend my own group as I allow self-promotion, https://www.facebook.com/groups/752741734903215/. PS. It is very new but steadily growing.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Yolanda,
      Thank you for the compliments on my article. Thank you as well for suggesting your Facebook group. I requested entry, and I am excited about joining.

  7. Robbie Cheadle

    Great advice, Janice. I have joined a few and will see how it goes. Shared on twitter @bakeandwrite.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Robbie,
      Thank you so much for sharing my article. Definitely do what you have time to do. I generally try to see how active the group is. If they are active, I know I am getting exposure to more people. Let me know how it goes.

  8. Bren Pace

    Hey Janice! Fabulous list of groups! Just when I left a bunch of them, you share more goodies! I requested a few on a list and will see how it goes. I know some of those groups are really time-consuming. I just can’t keep up. Thankfully some of these are quite as demanding.

    See ya around!


    • Janice Wald

      Hi Brenda,
      Thanks for writing. I realize promoting in all these groups can be time-consuming. However, can’t you copy-paste? Only if there is a marketing group I might tweak the content a little.

      • Bren Pace

        Oh yes, for dropping my own content. But some groups that I have been in have you do daily threads. I just don’t have the time available for that especially when there could be over 100 shared.

        • Janice Wald

          I agree. I don’t have time for those either. I didn’t recommend any of those since I don’t participate in those groups.

  9. Jen Monks

    Thanks for the recommendations. Some of the FB groups I am in now are not a great fit for me. It’s nice to have a few alternatives.

    • Janice Wald

      May I ask why they aren’t a good fit? Are there criteria you can share?

  10. Pat

    Thanks for the tip, Janice. You are so generous with your wealth of knowledge.

    • Janice Wald

      You are kind Pat. Thank you for reading what I wrote, commenting, and your compliments.

  11. Jen Dodrill

    Awesome “non” article! 😉 Thanks for linking to my blog post too. I appreciate it! I’m excited about exploring the groups you have listed!

  12. Marsha Ingrao

    Great post, Janice. Thanks for including our group, Networking Bloggers. Groups are a great way to make friends, get advice and promote your work. You are an amazing promoter, and do provide a great service to bloggers. Thanks for your work and your friendship. Marsha 🙂

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Marsha,
      I appreciate your friendship too, which is why I am really embarrassed to say: I didn’t mention your group in the article. Honestly, I didn’t know about it.
      I promoted the Blogging Network group. However, I did click the link and asked to join. I hope you’ll have me, LOL! Thanks for letting us know about it.
      Here is the link for other interested parties:

    Thank you for this fabulous advice, especially the point about searching for groups. I’m already in a couple of groups but I never thought to look for any that might be regional in nature.


  14. Edward Thorpe

    Hi Janice,

    For a blogger looking for connections and exposure, this informative post is G-O-L-D! Thank you for the list. I’ve already asked to join a few (don’t wanna over-extend my abilities).

    I already belong to one FB group that’s very supportive, as well. You’d be a natural fit. (I’ve shared this post to one of the group’s sharing pages)

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Edward,
      “Gold,”– high praise! I am glad I could help with my Facebook group list. Thank you for sharing my article with the group. Much appreciated. May I ask for the link of the group you’re in? You said I’d be a good fit. I’d love to join! Please return with the link so we can see.

  15. LaShon Renee

    Very nice list! I’m afraid to join any new FB groups since I’m already in about 100. Lol ?

    • Janice Wald

      Hi LaShon,
      Isn’t that where you and I met, a Facebook group? Thanks for writing.

      • LaShon Renee

        Yes, we met in SoCal Lady Blogger. So far I’ve requested to join two of the groups you listed.

  16. John Mulindi

    Thanks for sharing this information. This is very helpful to many bloggers out there like Me!

    • Janice Wald

      HI John,
      So glad you liked my article. Thanks for writing to tell me the Facebook groups are helpful to you. See you there!

  17. Anonymous

    As always very useful advice. I will bookmark this. At present I am very much involved in groups on G+. I mostly use FB to see what my friends are up to and to like their pages. However once I can crop some groups I will think about perhaps joining one group at first.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Rasma,
      I haven’t received substantial traffic from G+. Any tips? I used to promote in groups but it wasn’t worth my time. Thanks for writing.

  18. Rasma Raisters

    I’m sorry I forgot to add the information that comment about G+ groups is mine.

    My absolutely favourite list ever .These Facebook groups look perfect.I joined all if them except 3.Those 3 links are broken.The second one I am sure is showing an error code. Thank you for your help.Visiting from my favourite linky At Bloggers Pit stop

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Amrita,
      Thank you for clicking my link over at the Pit Stop.
      I am glad you found my list valuable. I was not aware any of the links were broken. I have a plugin that shows me broken links by crossing them out, and nothing is crossed out.
      Do you recall which ones didn’t work, so I can check?
      Thanks for letting me know.

    Hi, Janice. Last year when I did a “which traffic methods work” experiment, I was in a number of groups, some listed above.

    They are time-consuming, YES, but there are V.A.s who will do your “social chore threads” for you. Many of the larger bloggers have a few V.A.s doing it for them.

    So, if your blog is dependent on page views for ads, I suggest investing in a V.A. to help you out or buddy up with a few bloggers who can support you.

    I believe it was in a FB group that I found YOU and your lovely Blogger’s Pitstop. ^_^

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Sara,
      Can you recommend an affordable VA that might help me with my social media management? That would be much appreciated if you know anyone. Thank you for writing.

      • Sara

        Yes, I can. Just give me a little bit of time. (adding it to my task list)


        The traffic stats are here https://saraduggan.me/traffic-map-2016/ and the results are in an Excel sheet. I haven’t published it,

        As far as page views, FB groups trumped all methods for Stumbles. Your Linky was one of the top referrers as far as getting comments and ViralContentBee was the top app to increase Retweets.

        • Janice Wald

          Wow! Why didn’t you publish your findings? Do you plan to ? I sent your nice comments about Pit Stop to Kathleen, the head of our linky.
          Thanks for the help with the reasonable VA.

        • Janice Wald

          I could not find ViralContentBee at the app store. Did you mean site?

    • Janice Wald

      I would be curious the results of your experiment. Which traffic worked best? Do you have a link to a post you wrote up?

      • Michelle Williams

        No, not yet…….however, I do plan on reviewing your info again and take action. I will post my results upon completion. I’m looking forward to this. However, please let me know if I need to create a business FB account or can I use my personal one. Thanks. 🙂

        Michelle W.

        • Janice Wald

          Your personal one should be fine. I’m looking forward to reading your results as well. Be sure to send me the link whenever you finish your research.

          • Michelle Williams

            HI, Janice,

            Great, thank you – I just noticed your previous reply below; it did not come up when I clicked on the notification link the first time – I am sorry, I missed it when I replied earlier! 🙁 Anyway, I plan to post my results, thanks again! 🙂

  27. Michelle Williams

    Hi, Janice,

    First, congrats on your numerous page views for your article, “18 Facebook Groups You Need to Join Today”. Great info. 🙂 I would like to know:

    1. I only have a personal FB page. Will I need to create a FB business page in order to post on the FB blog links that were mentioned?

    2. Does it matter whether you have a few blog posts (two – four) in order to promote your blog? Or would a blogger need more?

    Thank you for your time. Again, congrats! 🙂

    Michelle Williams

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Michelle,
      Thanks for writing.
      1. Although some FB groups require you have a FB page for your blog or business, these groups don’t.
      2. As long as you have one post you can promote your blog!
      3. Thanks for the hearty congratulations and for writing me.

  28. Sudipta Kr Maiti

    Hi Jenice,

    Amazing list. Except Writer’s Accountability Group ( some error showing) I have just joined all the FB Group you listed above. Thanks a lot for sharing.

      Exciting to hear! You will love the exposure and ultimate traffic. I guess I’ll see you there! Sorry about the error with the Writer’s Accountability Group. I was just there this morning without a problem.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi again Sudipta,
      I was wondering where you found the Facebook article. I like to know what promotion methods work for me. Thank you for reading what I wrote, by the way.

    Hi Janice,

    I reach here from the interview on PAC. And I am glad to reach here. As you have mentioned Facebook groups is a great way to meet like-minded bloggers and increase traffic to your blog. Through Facebook Groups I was able to meet you. So I always looking for more groups to join.

    Thanks for sharing this list.

    One side note is that when I clicked on crazy4blogging and Writer’s Accountability Group I received an error that link has expired or not visible to me. I am not sure if this is end error on my end.

    Also if you can add the Stumble and Pin group to your list that will be helpful to grow the group and get more traffic.

    By the way, I have linked to this article from my blog post.

    Thanks Again for sharing.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Qasim,
      1. Thanks so much for the link! Much appreciated!
      2. Here is the link to Writer’s Accountability Group. It works for me fine: https://www.facebook.com/groups/967345996719669/ They will share your post on Twitter, too.
      3. Crazy4Blogging must have folded. Thanks for letting me know.
      4. Per your suggestion, so I’d still have 18 groups, I replaced it with Stumble and Pin.
      Thanks for commenting and again for the link.

      • Qasim

        You are more than welcome Janice. The Stumble and Pin group have great potential. And I hope it grows very quick.

        • Janice Wald

          When I write my next post about Facebook groups, I’ll give Stumble and Pin even more promotion. That should be in the last quarter of the year.

  47. Mr Kevin Edward Piggott and Mrs Patricia Anne Piggott

    What is the story with Adult sites? Most of them seem to be for schoolies. Are there any real adult sites on face book at all. Why is nudity banned on all “adult” facebook sites? As much as anything I am just wondering although if there are some which are genuinely adult that would be better. thanks

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Kevin and Patricia,
      Perhaps I am using “adult” as a synonym for “mature.” In this case, “mature” means sexual content not appropriate for younger people. Are you using “adult” to mean serious as opposed to being silly?
      If so, I don’t know if there are any “adult” sites. To be frank, there are Reddit communities that are serious. If you’d like to check them out, you’ll find information about all sorts of Reddit communities here: https://www.mostlyblogging.com/r-nsfw-gif-hot-subreddits/. You’ll find both the serious and the silly.
      Thanks for commenting and giving me a chance to make sure my terms were clear.
