I’m currently administering two Facebook groups: “Karakallio”is for the village we live in and “Rastaalan koulu tänään” for my son’s school. Because the first has 342 members and the latter only 26, I decided to upgrade the smaller group first.

Old group before the upgrade:

New group after the upgrade:

What changed?

So far I haven’t noticed anything I like about the new group. Following things I don’t like:

– You can add your friend to the group without asking permission from the person.
– There are ads – there were no ads in the old groups.
– The group’s profile photo is smaller than before.
– It’s not as clear as before, that you are on a group’s page, because you have your own profile picture at it’s usual page in the upper left hand corner.
