Facebook is focusing on building Groups and communities right now. And one of their most successful features is called Social Learning. 

Social Learning is an amazing way to create buckets of content, and finally, put an order to your Groups and add more functionality to your community!

But how do you activate and use this amazing feature? Inside this article, we’ll show you exactly what you need to do in order to CRUSH it! Let’s dive in!

What is a Social Learning Group and how does it work?

A social learning group is like a regular group except:

  • Admins can organize posts into Guides and change the order in which they appear
  • Group members can click “I’m done” to let the admin know they’ve interacted with the Guide
  • Admins can view group insights and see details on Guides and post completion

Step #1: Activating Social Learning

Note: Use a computer to go navigate this step.

Facebook Groups are divided into different types based on their functionality. So you’ll need to change the category of your Group.

Go to your Facebook Group, and on the left side, you’ll see “Manage Group”. Scroll down to “Settings”.

Then find the section to “Add Extra Features”.

Underneath it, you’ll see a category called “Group Type”. Now all you have to do is change it to “Social Learning”. And ta daaa!

Congratulations! Now you now have a Social Learning Group!

Step #2: Using Guides

Think of Guides as the Modules you have in any learning course. The only difference is that now this is YOUR learning environment, so you can choose to organize it however you think is best.

So when you click on Guides, think strategically and ask yourself, “What would be the most efficient way for me to organize the content of my Group, so that my community gets the greatest value out of it?”

We recommend that no matter what structure you choose, your first Guide should be “Getting Started”. Why? Because you can create a Welcome Video with an explanation of how the Group works. Then you can add Group Rules (always a must!) and all of your freebies, so members can download them easily and get instant value!

After that, you can add however many Guides you’d like. And if you’re not sure about their order, don’t worry! Rearranging them is very easy! Just:

  • Click on “Guides” below the cover photo
  • Click on the 3 dots (…) next to any Guide, then select “Edit Guide”
  • In the top left corner, you’ll see the option to “Re-order
  • Drag the Guides into the order you’d like and click “Save”

Want to create a new Guide? Simply:

  • Click on “Guides” below the cover photo
  • On the right-hand side, you’ll see the option to “Create a Guide”
  • Give your new Guide a title and a description and click “Save”

Step #3: Adding Content

Now let’s get into the good stuff! How do you go about adding content to your Guides?

There are two ways.

Option #1: If your group isn’t too big, you can just scroll through it. Once you find a piece of content you want to add to a Guide, click on the 3 dots in the top right-hand corner. Then you’ll see the option to add it to an existing Guide.

Option #2: If you know the post you’d like to add to a Guide, search for a keyword. Facebook will pull up any relevant content. Then simply click on the post you want to add and follow the same process.

Want to rearrange the posts in each Guide? Follow these steps:

  • Click on “Guides” below the cover photo
  • Click on the 3 dots (…) next to the Guide
  • You’ll see the option to “Re-order posts”
  • Drag the posts in the order you’d like them to be and click on “Save”

And that’s it!

Keep in mind that you’ll need to set some time aside to do all of this organization. But it’s so going to be worth it! It was a lot of fun and the end result is amazing!

BONUS TIP: Create a cover photo for your Group with clear instructions for people to get started. It will be useful both for any new members and for older ones who’re still not too familiar with Guides.
