Whenever I make any comments in a Facebook group or do any activity in a particular group, all my friends get notifications for that update, even if they are not part of that group. How can I stop my updates from them?

The group needs to be private (closed or secret), otherwise they publish updates.

Something you can do, which I know isn't ideal, is to delete from your time-line the publication of the group update. Of course, if one of your friends just refreshed his stream before you got a chance to delete it, they might see it but it's better than nothing.

The group options are open, closed, and secret. Your posts to open groups are seen by your friends, but not posts to closed or secret groups unless the friend is a group member. With a secret group your friends won't even see that the group exists. – mark4o Mar 6 '12 at 21:17
