Facebook and Multiple forums


Active member
Fishing for suggestions here.

Let's say you run multiple forums and you want to tie them to Facebook, do you create multiple FB groups (a group per forum where the thematic focus strongly varies) - or do you (can you) have all your forum properties hooked up to the same ONE FB group?

To simplify, how did you connect your multiple forums to FB? What has your experience been?

Thanks for sharing!

Actually, instead of groups, what I did is create a bunch of pages relevant to the niche sites I run.

For each niche site, I drove traffic from that particular FB page to my forums. Groups do not have the power to drive traffic to your forum, instead... it does the opposite of what you want to do because those group members will treat that group as if it's a forum, and not a magazine where they can see what you have posted over at your forums.

How to drive more traffic to your site via facebook or Google+ can be found here.

If you want examples of niche traffic forums with FB pages, here ya go:
