How to Find Groups in Facebook

By Laurianna Callaghan

Facebook is a prominent website where people and businesses get together for social interaction online. This interaction takes place in the form of comments and replies on personal pages, selecting the "Like" button on business and fun pages, and discussions in groups. Anyone on Facebook can form a group, an avenue to get people with similar interests together to discuss a topic. To find a group, you can search for it either by name or by keyword with Facebook's search function.
