How do I set up a group in Facebook that only allows the members to either like or comment on a post but not create new post themselves?

I want to restrict the posting to admins only.

  1. Go to http://www.facebook.com/groups/GROUPNAME/edit/ or click on the wrench button in the top right of your group's page & then click on Edit Group
  2. In the section Posting Permissions (the last one), select Only administrators can post to the group.
  3. Click Save

I do not think this is currently possible. There are no available settings within the Groups feature to do this.


It is not possible to allow comments but not posts. It's an all-or-nothing setting for members.
