Do you consider your Facebook page less of a comfortable living room and more of a busy town square? 

Don’t worry!

You can turn your public page into a private one with only a few clicks. 

This guide will show you how to make your Facebook page private and create a space for selected stuff and close connections.

Steps to Make Facebook Group Private Invite Only

Although you can create a Facebook group private invite only and link it to your Facebook page, you cannot create a private invite Facebook page.

Alternatively, you can create a particular VIP Facebook group just for your most devoted followers, or whatever unique selling point you have.

From your Facebook page, you can start creating a Facebook group. You can create a private invite-only Facebook group by following these steps:

Step 1: Open your Facebook account and log in.

Step 2: Navigate to the "Groups" section located on the left sidebar, or click the "+" icon located in the upper right corner, then choose "Group."

Step 3: Name your group and add any more information you wish to.

Step 4: Select "Private" under "Privacy."

Step 5: Under "Visibility," there is an "Hidden" option, click on it. 

Step 6: On your group's page, click "Invite" to invite people to your group.

To start the group, you must invite at least one member. The Facebook group can only be joined by those invited.

After creating the group, you can post as your Facebook page and link the group to your Facebook page.

After creating the group, you can post as your Facebook page and link the group to your Facebook page.

Make Your Facebook Page Private

Step 2: Press the three bars in your screen's upper-right corner.

Step 4: Choose the page you want to unpublish from the list.

Step 5: To access your settings, hit the gear icon in the top right corner of the page.

Step 6: Select "General" from the list's top option.

Step 7: Locate the "Page Visibility" section by swiping it down.

Step 8: Instead, you should get a blue checkmark next to "Unpublish" after you tap it.

Step 9: When you return to your page, one of the options you may see is "Publish Page." You can return to the settings menu at any moment or make your page public again by tapping this blue button.
