Now you have learned about the top Facebook group for mastering WordPress.
And, don't forget that every group comes with a set of rules, that are meant to be followed. If you want to advertise something, get in touch with group admins to get permission. Or find groups, that offer a separate place for promotional content. Otherwise, you will get banned and will be less likely to get your hands on the free ad helpful information these groups offer.
So, most importantly, always try to participate in the groups. That is the only way that we can build the WordPress community and grow our websites!
