Creating a group on Facebook can be beneficial to you and your brand. The power of Facebook lies in the way you utilize it, and if you want to promote your brand, creating a group can help drive traffic to your business website or show the skills that you have. A group can also give you an outlet to gather a following that supports and appreciates what you want to do.
