You need not to tag all the new members one by one. There is an automated system to tag all the members with a single click.
The simple steps to create a welcome post and tag all members with a single click.
Select the Members option and then click on the Write Welcome Post as shown below or select Publish Weekly if you want to post the welcome post every week automatically. This is a new feature of the Facebook group.
Check the later part of this article to know about the Publish Weekly option for Facebook group welcome post.
Once you have clicked Write Welcome post you will find all the new members are automatically tagged in the post.
"Let's welcome our new members" is the default text of Facebook. You can write on your own to welcome your new community members and click Post to make it live.
Schedule your welcome post and make it live at the pick hour.
You can also schedule your welcome post and make it live. It is better that you post in the group when your members remain more engaged.

The steps to schedule the welcome post are:
After writing your welcome post, click on the Calendar icon at the bottom right corner.
Now select the date and time when you want your welcome post to go live and click on 'Schedule'.
So, your post is scheduled now and it will go live in your Facebook group at the right time.
Automatically Publish Welcome Post Weekly
You can welcome the members in one week. You do not need to create a welcome post every week as Facebook is going to do it for you. With the help of the admin assist feature of the Facebook group, you can welcome new members every week with a custom message.
Let's how to use this feature
- Click on the Publish Weekly button as shown below and you will be taken to the admin assist option of the Facebook group. Or, you can go to the Publish a welcome post option at the "Admin assist" feature.
2. Click Add as shown below.
3. Click Continue to the popup that will appear. You can also see how this feature will work here.
4. This is the most important step of this feature. Here you will have the set up your welcome post. Things you will have to do-
➤ Customize the welcome message. You can write whatever you want to want to inform your new members. You can also link to the important posts of your group.
➤ Change or remove photo in the welcome post. There are four different photos added here. You can fix anyone or alternate among the photos. If you want you can remove the photo from the welcome post.
➤ Repeat frequency of the welcome post is weekly by default.
➤ Now chose the date and time of the first welcome post. You can also see when your group has maximum engagement on average. You can also choose a day and time on your own.
➤ Tick mark on the last option if you want to introduce your admins with the welcome post.
Let’s talk about the content of your welcome message. After analyzing the welcome posts of some renowned groups, I could gather some common trends in the welcome post content.
Things you should look for while writing the welcome post:
1. Easy to read
This is the first and foremost thing you should consider while writing a welcome message. You should write simple words in your welcome message so that all the members can understand.
2. Ask for an introduction
I have found most of the group admins ask the new members to introduce themselves. It’s a good practice that let the new members write about themselves and the other members can learn about that member.
3. Gift for the new members
Everyone loves to get gifts. If you have anything special to offer to your new members, you can add it to your welcome message. The gifts can be anything.
Some examples of gifts are:
- Free training or course
- Invitation to webinar
- Email templates
- Blogs or articles
- Free tools
4. Use Images or gifs
To get some extra attraction to your welcome post, you can add relevant images or gifs with your welcome post. Sometimes, group admins also use their own photos.
5. Pin the welcome post
You can also keep the welcome post pinned so that it remains at the top of your group. When a new member joins the group, he/she will see the welcome post. Old members can also the welcome post at the first go and get an idea about the newly joined members.
