Facebook groups are great places for sharing topic related content like your blog posts. Automatically posting in multiple groups on Facebook at once is the key to use these channels to get your content in front of more eyeballs.

Facebook groups can play an outstanding role in your social media marketing strategy. Why? Members of a Facebook group share the same interest in a specific topic. Unlike all other marketing channels, on Facebook you can get in touch with users, who are not following you. This is why posting in Facebook groups has a great impact on your outreach.

However, if you take part in multiple Facebook groups, manually posting in multiple Facebook groups takes time and is tedious work. Time you could better spend on other tasks.

Auto-posting to multiple Facebook groups at once can actually save your time. In this article you learn how the social media automation plugin Blog2Social helps you to post in multiple Facebook groups at once automatically and directly from your Wordpress dashboard.

How to schedule and tailor your posts for multiple Facebook groups

You can automatically share your blog posts and images in all connected Facebook groups with Blog2Social. You have two general options for sharing your content. You can simply auto-post and auto-schedule your posts to multiple Facebook groups at once whenever you publish a new blog post, or you can individually tailor and schedule your posts individually for each Facebook group and then share them automatically. These are "auto-posting" and "custom sharing and scheduling".

If you want to tailor your social media posts before posting, a one-page preview editor allows you to do this in one easy step for all of your Facebook groups. You can add comments, hashtags and handles and schedule your posts individually for each Facebook group.

  • Select the format for your posts. Facebook allows different post-formats for your posts. A photo post focuses on the image and saves it in your Facebook albums. A link post links the selected preview image directly to your blog posts. Select the option that is best for your purpose.
