It's a fact that private Buy Nothing groups using Facebook Groups can't accommodate ever-increasing membership growth without running into some predictable human nature and technological issues.

In the past, we supported BN groups going through growing pains with two different approaches, and you're welcome to learn about these and choose one of these paths for your Buy Nothing private group.
