Step 4: Since I am in the USF (University of S. Florida) network, Facebook is giving me the option of creating a group inside or outside that network. Decide which network to use, if you have that option and then click “create new group”

Step 5:  A window will pop up asking you to name the group and pick members to invite. Once you do those two things, your Facebook Group will be created. You can now add more people by going through the “Suggested Members” on the right side or you can add people directly by typing in their tame in the “Add people to group” section right above the suggested members section.

Step 6: Now that your group is created. You can start posting and your  members will see it. That was easy right?

Step 7: Edit your individual notification settings. These settings are on a user by user basis, not settings for the group as a whole.
