Facebook can get a bad rap these days, but users sometimes forget that Facebook is home to countless groups that can be as broad or as specific as possible. Towns and cities often have Facebook groups where community members can post about local events, news, meetups, ask questions, and more. The North Jersey area has tons of groups that locals can join — it’s actually pretty difficult to weed out the ones worth joining. Luckily, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite groups to join for New Jersey residents.
