Design+Style Pro Tip

Did you know you can now create announcements in your Facebook group? (If you can't yet, you will be able to soon! You know FB and their roll-outs.)

1) Write post as you normally would and publish.

2) Click the three dots in the top right corner of your post and mark as announcement (you can also unmark an announcement the same way).

And don't forget to check the announcements in any groups you're a part of!
