Facebook has secret private HSV HPV local and support groups

HSV and HPV groups in Facebook

Facebook has herpes and HPV??


That’s right!  Facebook has herpes and HPV!  Ok, let us rephrase that….Facebook has smaller, secret and private HSV and HPV groups.  If you scroll through the pages of local groups and events, you may have noticed the words “Private Facebook Group” where the URL should be.  You may also have asked yourself, “Hey!  What’s up with that??” So, we thought it would be a good idea to explain.

Most local groups  and National Event organizers put up a website or create a group in Yahoo.  Now, some are just creating their stuff on Facebook.  These groups are private and the only way in is to be invited by a member.  These are also secret groups.  These groups do not show up on your Facebook page when your friends view it.  In other words, unless Facebook changes their privacy rules, none of your friends can see that you belong to one of these groups.

While their functions are limited, it is convenient to be able to check in from your Facebook page to see what your local group is doing.

The next question is, “How do I find these groups if they are secret and private??”

Many of our members are also members of these Facebook groups.  Once inside of HWerks, just ask and members will point you in the right direction!

Don’t worry, nobody will ask you for any personal information to join their group, just being a member of HWerks is good enough!

    Hi Ed!

    That is one of the problems with Facebook groups…they are private. You have to be invited by somebody from a private Facebook group to their group. This is understandable as people in the group will see your Facebook page, name, pic…etc.

    We can’t add people to private Facebook groups. You have to be invited by somebody you know or one of our members once you are inside.

    Hi Danielle,

    Unfortunately, we cannot add you to one of the groups. Since these groups are people’s real FB page, you have to be invited by someone already in a group for their privacy. If you are a member, however, other members may invite you into their respective FB group.

    Hi Rachel!

    Since people use their FB page to join the private groups, you have to be added by someone you know. Once inside HWerks, other members can get you into the various private FB groups that are out there.

    Hey all!

    We just opened up our own secret FB group for our members.

    Stephanie – I totally apologize that I missed your reply. They will ask you if you want to be added to a group, usually a local one. You would then have to be friends on FB and go from there.

    Cody, Gary, Steve – We have no way of adding you to these groups. As a member, you can join our secret group and then you are in the network and get into them all.

    If you are already a member, click the link on the home page once you log in.

    Hey, I need support. I just had an outbreak and the workd started spinning out of control. Im really depressed. I feel alone and dont know who to talk to. I know i could go to a therapist/counselor but would like to know the experience of others that have succesfully get out of the funk. It sucks. I know its not the end of the world but it feels like it. Even had bad thoughts about doing harm to myself.
    Im just need support and people to talk to. Specially face to face. Im scared and really dont know what to do. HELP

    Hi Robert!

    We have forums and chat inside with members who can answer your questions and give support. You can also go to the Groups section and see if there is one in your area.
