    That’s really not an answer to my question. I’m asking which is the better way to share, not whether or not to share.

    It’s going to be a relatively even split between the two choices.

    You’ll get more traffic to your site if you share the link to your site. Facebook Group -> Blog will lose less traffic along the way than Facebook Group -> Facebook Post -> Blog.

    However, Facebook’s algorithm gives far more weight to Facebook content. So, for those using the Top Stories feed instead of Most Recent, a shared Facebook post will be more visible than a shared Blog post.

    All of that to say, do whichever you want to do or whichever is easiest for you, because sadly both have pretty much equal pros/cons.

    Which is what I though I answered. Let me try to be clearer.

    Sharing a Blog Post Directly on the Facebook Group

    Pros: Less likelihood of losing visitors along the path of simply Facebook Group -> Blog Post.

    Cons: Less visible to people using the Top Stories view due to Facebook algorithm.

    Sharing a Blog Post your Facebook Group, then sharing that Facebook Group post on other Facebook Groups

    Pros: More visible to people using the Top Stories view due to Facebook algorithm, Facebook items are given more weight than external items.

    Cons: More likelihood of losing visitors along the longer path of Facebook Group 1 -> Facebook Group 2 -> Blog Post.

    Got it! Thanks for all the input!!
