Today I wanted to do a little video demo—how to detox your Facebook groups. I’ve been noticing as I scroll through my Facebook feed it’s been more clogged with random groups I no longer engage with and it’s become harder to find the content I actually want to see. If you’ve also been starting to see a lot more content from groups you don’t care about and its been clogging up your newsfeed, this is for you. Additionally, be sure to let us know below—it’s always interesting to find out what other Facebook users have been experiencing on their newsfeed.
Personally, I find it super annoying to have your newsfeed totally cluttered with stuff from groups that you don’t really want to interact with. If you feel the same, we suggest picking 3 to 5 Facebook groups you want to stay in. These groups should be ones that you’re going to use, or know offer an advantage to you. This does not mean groups you use solely to blast your message, advertise, or sell on, because that’s not what Facebook groups are about. No one likes it when someone does that on a group page. Facebook groups are generally for creating community and sharing knowledge with other people. Make sure to keep that in mind when selecting the groups you’re going to stay in.
Make sure the 3 to 5 Facebook groups you pick are ones that you know you can add value to and share information on. Helping people is how you’re going to build a real social network through using Facebook groups.
There are a couple different ways you can get to all of your groups. You can go over to Facebook’s navigation bar on the left side and find all your groups underneath the Explore category. From there you can see all the groups you’re in on the bottom portion of the left hand side. You can filter through them that way, but depending on how many groups you’re in, that is going to take a long time. To do it this way, you will have to click the name of each group you’re in and click ‘joined’ at the top right of the page, then select ‘leave group’ from there, which will pop up as an option in a drop down menu. Doing it this way will require you to repeat this process manually for every group you want to leave.
If you want to speed the process up, there’s also a short cut.
Instead of going to groups from your Facebook home page, go up to the search bar at the top and search ‘group’. Then select ‘groups’ from the white navigation bar that will appear directly underneath your search bar. On the left hand side of the web page you will be able to ‘filter results’. From there underneath ‘membership,’ select ‘my groups.’
All of the groups that you’re in will then appear. In the top right corner of each listing of the groups you are in there will be the ‘joined’ button, which you can then click and choose to ‘leave group.’
If you don’t want people to be able to re-add you to the group, make sure to click the little box in the window that pops up asking you if you’re sure you would like to leave this group so that other group members can’t re-add you—defeating the purpose of the entire process you just went through.
You can create stunning graphics even if you’re ‘design challenged’ CLICK HERE for a free Canva account trial.
If you’re looking for a challenge for the day—tally up how many unnecessary groups you left and let us know. It’s such a freeing feeling when you finish—we want to hear all about it. Also comment below to tell us how many groups you were in to start, and how many you ended with.
