How To Pin Posts On Facebook Groups

Pinned posts are a useful feature for groups as they keep a post at the top of your group’s timeline/feed.

Here’s how you can pin a post.

Pin Your Group Post Tutorial:

Step 1: Head to your group.

It doesn’t matter how you get there, so long as you do 👌

Step 2: Create or Select Post you want to Pin.

This step is pretty self-explanatory.

Either create a new post or select the existing one you want to pin to the top of the group.

Now, before doing anything else head to the next step.

Step 3: Click the dropdown to open the post menu

At the top right of your post, there is a little down arrow, this is the post options menu.

Click it once.

Step 4: Mark as announcement.

This is an additional step you need to take before the pin post option becomes available.

Your group can have multiple announcements, but only a single pinned post.

So the extra step is also a useful management feature to know about for your group.

But it’s also a key part of the functionality of how pinned posts work and display.

More on this in a minute.

Step 5: Pin it

Reselect the dropdown on the top right of your post.

Now you’ve marked the post as an announcement, you can pin it.

Now underneath Mark as announcement you should have a new option called Pin to top.

Click it once.

Voila! You’re done 🥳

Note: once you’ve done this the post will be marked under ‘Announcements’. This doesn’t mean it hasn’t been successfully pinned.
