How to Make a Group Account on Facebook

Any user with a personal Facebook account is permitted to make a group account on the social networking site. Use a group to communicate with a small sector of your friends, or people on Facebook with the same interest. Once you create your group, it is quickly accessed from your Facebook homepage. While you are able to add friends to the group without their approval, a friend always has the option to leave if she does not want to be a part of it.

      Enter a name for the group in the empty field at the top of the page. Click on the arrow immediately to the left of the name to select an icon that will appear at the top of your group's page. Icons include a soccer ball, television and tree --- choose the icon that best fits the theme of your group.
