Facebook Testing New Option to Allow Pages to Post in Groups

Posted by @DanHinmon, Mar 28, 2017

Facebook is testing the ability of Pages to participate in Groups.

We know this because a guy named Michael Brandvold posted a screenshot on
Twitter that captures this language: “Facebook Groups let people connect with your Page and each other. Now you can interact with Groups as your Page, and your Page can be an admin of these groups”

This article does a nice job of summarizing some pros and cons to this possible move. One point to allay concerns that patient groups may be spammed:

“The risk is that this becomes a spam-fest – that businesses use their Page presence to jump into every loosely related group and push their latest and greatest deals, but Group admins will always be able to kick them out, same as they would with spammers using personal profiles.”
