Momiji Social Media Workshop Student Questions Answered


>For forgotten Facebook password (associated email and username known)

How do I reset my password?

If you can't log into Facebook and need to reset your password:

>To find out if your Facebook account still exists:

If an account you created is still on Facebook, we can help you find it. You'll need to know an email address, a phone number or the username associated with your account. You may also be able to find the account using your name and the name of someone you're friends with on Facebook.

Once you find the account, you can reset your password. You can then continue using your account or delete it.

How to re-activate a Facebook account you have deactivated:

If you've deactivated your account, you can reactivate it at any time just by logging in. If you can't remember your password, you can request a new password. Learn more about how to reactivate your account if you can't access the email address you listed on it.


>What to do if Facebook has disabled your account:

My Account's Disabled

If your Facebook account has been disabled, you'll see a disabled message when you try to log in. If you don't see this message then you're probably experiencing a login issue. Get help logging in.

>How to create an event:

How do I create an event?

To create an event: (From your personal Facebook account)

  1. Click Events on the left side of your homepage.
  2. Click Create in the center or on the left side under My Events.
  3. Fill in the event name, details, location and time, and then choose your privacy settings. Keep in mind that you must include an event name and time.
  4. Click Invite Friends to add friends to the guest list. Check the names of the people you want to invite and then click Save.
  5. Click Create.

You'll be taken to your event where you can share posts, upload photos, invite more guests and edit event details.


How do I create an event from my Page?

To create an event from your Page:

  1. On your Page's Timeline, click, Event + and select Event
  2. Fill in the name and details of your event
  3. Click Create

You can also add targeting so that only the most relevant people can see your Page's event in their News Feeds. While creating your event, click Add Targeting at the bottom to target your event based on gender, location, age and more.



Many Facebook help links to questions about groups can be found here:

The link above includes how to create a group.

And here:

This link (above) has help topics for Group Admins and settings.  My guess is that the privacy settings either for the group members or for the photos etc., posted themselves.


>Groups vs Pages:

I found this excellent article (linked above) comparing the pros and cons of groups and pages.

The bottom line is: Pages have more options to personalize the timeline (like a personal/basic account) and to create events. Groups allow for better direct communication between members.
