How to attach a document for a group in Facebook

Facebook groups provide friends, family members and colleagues with a convenient way to communicate about a shared interest. If you have a document that your fellow group members would find useful, you're going to have to do a bit of copy and pasting to share it. While Facebook does not currently have a way to directly upload documents to groups, you can create a document for the group right on your group's page.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Login to your Facebook account. Select your group from the left sidebar on the Facebook home page.

  2. 2

    Click on the "Create Doc" link on the right sidebar of your group page. This link is located directly beneath the group members' profile pictures.

  3. 3

    Type a title for your document into the "Title" field. Write your document's content into the main text field. If you have an existing document that you wish to share with the group, you can copy and paste the text. Click "Create Doc" when complete. This document is accessible through the "Docs" menu in the right sidebar of your group page.

Tips and warnings

  • The "Create Doc" tool can only support basic text formatting. If you want to share a media-rich or heavily formatted document, you may be better off hosting the file somewhere else and providing your group with a link to the file.
