Post to Your Group’s Feed

If you want to say something to your entire community, create a post in your group’s feed.

Note: You can create a post on your activity feed or you can create a post in a group of which you are a member.

You can control who sees the posts in your activity feed by changing your account’s Visibility settings.

If you create a post in your group, it will be visible to anyone who is a member of your church group and (depending on how your group is configured) to any member of the general public who visits your church’s activity feed.  When you create a post, make sure you’re posting in the right place, and that you’re comfortable with the content you’ve posted and the visibility it will have.

 

Post - Write a post when you want to notify your group about something.

Media - Use the media post type when you want to post an image or video to your group’s feed.

Prayer - Use this post type to ask your community to pray for something.

For Sale - Use this post type to offer an item for sale. For sale posts have additional text fields allowing you to set a price and location of the item for sale.

Announcement - Use an announcement post to let your community know about an upcoming event. When you create an event announcement, that event will also be added to your church group’s calendar.

Article - Use this type when you want to create a longer post and/or make use of more text formatting options and embedded images.
