How to Make a Group Thread Message for Facebook

By Alexander Poirier

In the past, the admin and members of a Facebook Group were able to create a discussion thread where members could discuss a particular topic related to the group. When Facebook redesigned their Group pages, however, they removed this feature as a separate section. Now, discussion topics are instead posted on the group's home page, where members of the group can respond to the topic through comments just as they would in any other thread. Furthermore, when these topics are posted, any and all group members with group notifications enabled will receive a message regarding the discussion.
