  • Australia’s Fashion Blogger Community
  • Digital Marketing Freelancers in Australia

In this Facebook group setting, all Facebook users including the non-members will be able to see your group name, description, location, tags, members, and discussions.

Closed Facebook Group

This is the most advisable Facebook group type – if you are selling an online course, building a filtered online community with qualifications, creating a distributor group for your product resellers, and more.
