Oh man. I thought it would be easy breezy to just change the privacy setting on my existing Facebook page from public to a closed group. Nope. After searching and searching and searching for the answer, I found it, as my granddaughter would say, ‘by my own’. I didn’t need a techie-minded millennial to help me after all 🙂 Problem is, it’s not a simple fix. What I have to do is completely delete the current PAGE and create a different GROUP. It also means that anyone who has liked or is following that page will not be automatically moved to the new group. They will have to find it and follow it again.
I don’t have that many Facebook followers to begin with and I expect it will take some time to build up a following. That translates into few people reading my very clever and well thought out 😉 posts and even fewer commenting. It’s hard to have a lively dialogue when there isn’t anyone there!! Still…I’m stubborn and intend to keep on keepin’ on by posting and asking and discussing until such a time as there are people who are reading and responding and discussing.
I’m not sure how long it takes between the deletion of the current page and the allowable start time of a closed group with the same name, but I hope you will stay with me and eventually follow my Facebook group.
