Group Leaders

Have a new idea for a Group?
Want to start a Group to promote your business, event, or organization?
Want to start a Group to gather like-minded people in your area?
Then Go for It. See a Need, Start a Group and fill the Need.

Creating a Group on The Love 4 Life platform can make your experience here more enjoyable. Whether it is a fan club, a local meet-up with like-minded people, or an encouraging fitness and nutrition goal-setting Group to motivate yourself and others that join, what you can create is only limited to your imagination.

However, kindly recall that participation in The Love 4 Life is subject to our Terms and Conditions and Group Discussion adhering to the Forum Guideline.

And while the process of creating a Group is self-explanatory, the following is a step-by-step guide for those that need a little more details about the group-creation process.

How to Create a Group

  • Click on Groups on the Homepage or navigation bar.
  • On the Groups page under the Search Groups search bar, select Create a Group.

A new page will open, and you will see the 6 steps to creating your Group.

Step 1. Details:

  • Group Name.
  • Group Description.

Both are required to be filled out.
After filling, select Create Group and Continue

Step 2. Settings:

Here are the Privacy Options for your Group and Group Invitations. Select one of the following:

  • Public:
    Any User may view the Group details, read the Groups Forum, and join the Group. No further action by the Group Leader is required.
  • Private:
    A User can view the details of the Group, name, and description from Step #1, but cannot view information posted within the Group Forum until they have been accepted by the Group Leader to join. An email notification will be sent to the Group Leader upon request for a User asking to join the Group. The Group Leader has the task of either accepting or declining the request.
  • Hidden:
    Groups that are created as Hidden are not viewable or searchable on the Groups page, nor will the Group’s Forum on the main Forum page be shown. It is non-existent to the Users that are not part of the Hidden Group. Here, Group Leaders gain members only by invites.

Now select one of the Group Invitations options.
These options may be changed at any time.

Then select Next Step

Step 3. Group Forum:

A Group Leader can choose to select “Yes. I want this group to have a forum.”

If you want additional Forums for your Group, this option will create a Forum under Groups on the main Forum page. You and your members have access to the Forum either directly on your Group page or the main Forum page. With this option, you may create separate topics within your Group.

However, you may choose to disregard this by leaving the checkbox blank.
Your Group will still have a discussion board, which is limited to a single ongoing thread, similar to the site-wide Activity page.
If you select Public in step #2 Settings, your Forum will be viewable by all Users.
However, no User can post in Group-created Forums unless they have joined the Group, whether in Public or Private settings.

If a Forum is created, it cannot be deleted unless a request to delete a Group Forum is sent to an Admin or Moderator.

Now select Next Step.

Step 4. Photo:

Here, you can use an Avatar picture, depending on your choice. This Avatar will be viewable on the main Group page when people browse the Groups. You may upload an image from your computer or phone.
You may also leave this empty; in that case, the site will use a default image.
After the image has been uploaded, select Next Step.

Step 5. Cover Image:

This is similar to the Cover photo of your Profile page.
You may also leave this empty; in this case, only the Avatar picture will appear when a User is viewing your Group.

Now select Next Step after the image has been uploaded.

Step 6. Invites:

Here, you have the option of inviting your friends to join your new Group by selecting from your list. Nevertheless, you may choose to select none, probably if you have no friends yet.

Now select Finish.

Voila! You have now created your new Group!

As a Group Leader, you have the option at any time to send Invites to new friends you may have later on accumulated. Also, under Step #2, you have the option to let other members send Invites as well, which is also changeable at any time.

The Love 4 Life will not oppose Users who wish to create a more adult-themed Group; however, they must be set to Private or Hidden, and it is still subject to the Forum Guideline.

Content with a sexual nature between consenting adults is fine.
We Are Open-Minded – But Certain Content Is a No-Go.
Feel free to private message an Admin or Moderator for more details about this.

Group Leader Tips and How to Get Other Members to Join.

The fun part is starting your Group and getting it out there for other members to join. A little bit of time and love will go a long way in creating a successful Group.

Here are some tips:

  • Choose a good name for your Group that is descriptive and calls to people.
  • Write a good group description: people want to know what they are joining.
  • Add an Avatar image as well as a Cover image for your Group. Anything that makes the Group more eye-catching.
  • Start new discussions and create content daily: people are always looking for good discussions.
  • Tell people about your Group: friends, like-minded people – anyone who might enjoy it.
  • Be yourself and have fun with it; fun and authenticity, nothing is more important.

The Love 4 Life will also select Groups that are of good ideas, unique and fun, and will spotlight them in our Newsletters and “What’s New at The Love 4 Life” email updates.

Love Your Group. What Makes a Good Group Leader?

What makes a good Group Leader? Someone who will contribute regularly to the Group and help moderate it. It is up to the Group Leader to moderate the Groups discussions and content.

The Love 4 Life will not moderate Group content and discussions. So, as a Group Leader, we would appreciate you moderating your Group appropriately.

If you have any questions, need a second opinion, or just want our Admin or Moderators to take care of something for you because you are not comfortable handling it yourself, please do not hesitate to email us at or private message an Admin or one of our Moderators.

Enjoy your stay here. Cheers!
