A Facebook Group is a way for a group of people to privately share information on Facebook. When you first set up a Facebook Group, the Group URL contains a long string of numbers. You can access a Group anytime via your Facebook homepage. However, with a customized URL in the form of "facebook.com/groups/groupalias" (with no quotes and where "groupalias" is whatever you designate), members can easily access the Group from the address bar of a Web browser. You can customize the URL for a Facebook Group by customizing the Group email address handle.
