Joining a facebook community is a great way to connect with a specific network of people. Here I share four amazing reasons to join a facebook community like the Balanced Mommies group, a community for mothers with young children. In a group like this, you will gain support, discover resources, have an opportunity to share what you know, make friends and more.
Four Amazing Reasons to Join a Facebook Community
1. Gain Support
Within facebook groups, like the Balanced Mommies Community, you will find a dedicated group of people with similar interests. This community is a great place to find support, ask questions, and have a safe and friendly place to discuss topics like parenting.
2. Find Resources
Because you can choose the topic of interest for each Facebook group, you will be able to find resources targeted specifically for that topic. In the Balanced Mommies Community, we have several discussion threads, in addition to questions and comments written by members. Some of our monthly discussion threads include: free parenting resources, easy toddler activities, yummy recipes, deal of the week, best of Pinterest, schedules / routines and more.
3. Share What You Know
Each Facebook community dynamic is determined by its members. In the Balanced Mommies Community for moms of young children, we love to share with others. If we find a great recipe, or a trick for getting a toddler to listen, or even something as simple as sharing a parenting win, we can learn from each other and share what we’ve learned along our parenting journey.
4. Make Friends
Facebook communities are wonderful for making new friends. As you share in weekly threads, you have a chance to get to know other members. In the Balanced Mommies Community, you will find many caring members who are parents of young children. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with people in the same phase of life as yourself.
