5. Customize your welcome message with the desired image, text, or video and hit post.

Note: As per Facebook’s latest update, you can welcome only 100 members at a time as opposed to the previous ability to welcome 300 members.

A good practice is to welcome new members at least once every week. We do the same in our Facebook group.

However, suppose you have a large number of people joining your community daily. In that case, you can choose to welcome new members once every two or three days. This way, you’ll be able to welcome everyone easily, no matter the new FB update and increase your Facebook group engagement.
