      Hi there,

      Does anyone have any experience of creating and maintaining a closed Facebook Group for alumni? We are looking for ways to provide an online space where alumni can interact with each other and create and share their own content. In a recent survey, 60% of our alumnae said they’d join a closed Facebook Group of this kind, and several volunteered to help with moderation. For us, using Facebook makes sense as this is where the majority of our alumnae already are – rather than introducing a new bespoke platform. I’d love to speak with someone who has experience in this and can give some top tips? I’m expecting this to be quite admin-heavy…

      Warm regards,

      Holly

      Hi Holly,

      We have a public facebook page and then link closed groups for each of our decade reunions and our young old boys group since 2012.

      Happy to chat directly to you and give you the tips and tricks.

      Regards
