A group is one of the best ways to connect with people in the community around common interests. If you’re thinking about creating a group, or already created one, here are some tips and tricks to make your homeis group grow.
Being a group admin means you're responsible for group activity, privacy, content and moderation in the group. All members can, of course, contribute and post in the group. But as an admin, you can delete bad posts or highlight the good ones, determine the group rules and lead the discussion.
This guide will walk you through how to manage your homeis groups so you can work better together.
There are 3 different privacy types:
Group admins can give admin privileges to anyone they choose. Choose from members lists the friends you want to join the group management so you won't have to do it alone.
With a catchy, creative, and descriptive name, your Group will be memorable and easy to search.
Your group’s description is one of the first points of interest for potential members so it’s important to make sure your description is brief and informative.
The description of the group should specify who should join the group, why they should join and what members can expect out of the group.
Group Cover Photo
Set the tone for the group by adding a Cover photo.
Group admins can approve and decline new members' requests (in private groups) and remove members in the Group Members section.
Created a new homeis group? Here are a few things you can do to start it off now:
Reach out your homeis:
Reach out and invite other homeis members to join your group, even if you don’t yet know them very well. You can use homeis People to find users you think would be interested in joining.
Kick off the conversation:
It’s important to get the discussion going with some posts of your own. You can publish relevant content, questions, or anything else you think members would enjoy and engage with.
Keep things under control:
Discussions can get heated. As an admin, you can moderate and maintain a positive atmosphere by reaching out to members who might be breaking the group rules, and setting discussion boundaries.
Meet your homeis:
Online meet-ups and events are the best to get your group members to really connect. Host an event to get people together.
