Our District’s Facebook Page and Group: What’s the Difference?

Toastmasters District Facebook Page vs. Your Facebook Group: What’s the Difference?

District 53, like many other districts, has both a Facebook page and a Facebook group. We plan to utilize these resources differently when promoting our members, clubs, and the district as a whole. As the PRM, I worked with our Social Media Chair, Heather Turner, to rename our Facebook group. The new name helps us all to better identify it as a group and distinguish it from the Facebook page. Our group is now named “D53 Toastmasters – A Place to Share,” while our page is called “District 53 Toastmasters.”

So, what’s the difference between the two?

The Toastmasters district Facebook page is a public page. Anyone can view our district’s Toastmasters page, regardless of membership. District leadership will share news, upcoming events (such as open houses), resources, and achievements of clubs and members. We encourage readers to like and share our posts to help spread our message.

The District Facebook group. Group members can view and engage with posts. This is a great place to connect with other club members, ask questions, receive feedback on speeches, and support each other in their public speaking journeys. We will also share upcoming events here that are intended for members of the District. If you are not a member, please follow the link below to join and participate.

So, which one should you use?

In short, both! If you want to stay up-to-date on District 53 news and events that are relevant to your Toastmasters journey, join our group. If you have news and events that may be of interest to the public, reach out to me and our social media team to publish a post on the District page.
