Since my main Facebook page was hacked, I only have my local groups that I can access.  Techincally, they were also hacked.  Only “Bargain Believer” was kicked out, but my personal page “Juli” is still able to post there.

FYI, I also have groups that aren’t very active (join and help make it active/valuable if you’re nearby), but I won’t be giving away tickets there.
