Our private Facebook groups are pretty active, so you might find they take over your Facebook news feed.

Don’t worry, there’s an easy solution.

Find a post from the group that’s taking over your news feed and click on the little triangle in the upper right corner to reveal a menu.

By “unfollowing” a group, you’re still a member of the group, but posts from that group won’t appear in the news feed anymore.

In order to participate in the group conversations, you can add a shortcut. Go to the group you want to create a shortcut for. In the upper right there’s a button with “…” that will reveal a menu. Choose “pin to shortcuts.”

Now a shortcut for the group appears on the left side of your Facebook account.

When there are new posts to your group, a number will appear next to it. This way you can stay a part of the conversation without getting constant notifications or filling up your Facebook news feed!
