Facebook Friday - group housekeeping

How many groups on Facebook do you belong to?  Don't think you belong to any?  Think again!

Earlier this week, I was looking at the groups I belong to  - there were nine.  Where did they come from?  I guess someone asked me to join their group and I thought it was a good idea at the time.  But how long ago was that?  I decided to see what they were all about.  You can do this too. 

You should have a group icon below your avatar in the left column.  If you don't see it, click "More" and it should be there (if it's not, do a search: groups)  Surprise!  There's another page, listing all your groups!  If you place your curser on top of a group name, you'll see an X at the right hand side pop up - an easy way to wipe your name off the group's list.  I went through my groups to see if I really wanted to stay with each one.  If you do the same, I'd suggest at least making a comment, while you're there.  After all, why be part of the group if you're not participating.

I had three groups that hadn't had a visitor in over a year.  Decided to say goodbye to those.  Want to find some new groups on your own, without waiting for them to find you?  You can type in anything of interest in the search box.  I actually thought there'd be more groups I would be interested in, but there weren't.  And some are quite old.  I wonder if Facebook is thinking about a Spring Cleaning themselves, to get rid of all the inactive accounts...

In different articles throughout the net it seems to indicate that groups are not working. It discussed what you found--old, inactive pages.
