TL;DR QUESTION: Does Facebook decrease exposure on groups made through pages versus groups made on personal profiles?
I am going to be creating a Facebook Group which is like a community associated with a particular page. The first main reason is that Groups seem to have much better exposure on news feeds now, and secondly because like I said it will be for a community of people so the Group format works well for allowing people to post and interact.
So I am wondering whether to create the Facebook Group through the page and have it linked, or whether to just have it made through personal profiles. I guess I ask because, if Facebook are choosing to make it much more difficult for pages (particularly businesses with money who use pages) and they’re going to force pages to buy ads for exposure, if this group is linked to a page will it suffer from the same decrease in exposure versus just signing up for it with a personal profile? I can’t see any major benefits of signing up with it with our page (that I know of), other than that it shows up the top the owner of the group with a link to the page. But we can overcome that by having links to our page around.
