I'm a noob with FB Groups.

Just wondering if something posted in a private group is visible on my regular personal timeline and vica-versa?

I would image also people in the group couldn't see my personal profile unless I made it public?

    I am fairly sure that content posted in a private Group is not visible on your regular personal timeline.

    There are FB Groups for FB Group admins . . . ask there to be sure

    Things posted in private groups will not appear in your profile or Timeline. Don't worry about that.

    Anyone can find the group, see the members and all the publications. Closed: Anyone can find the group and see who the admin is. However, only members can see what happens in it and the publications. Secret: Only members of the group can find it and see the content

    I post in Facebook groups all the time. My friends and family don't see those posts and replies unless they are in that group too.

    Groups are also a great source of information and research too. Hope that helps.

    I would be checking it. FB does have settings but not sure they always work.

    Sometimes I visit a profile and see all their photos and that is something you could have shared in a group only.
