If you are familiar with Pinterest, you might also want to check out the groups of Facebook. There are a lot of groups with a lot of beading-fans sharing their creations and give tips and advice. The advantage of Facebook is that you can easily respond to someone’s post, this isn’t possible on Pinterest. Another advantage is that people who post on Facebook usually add which technique, beads etc. they used for their creation. There are also discussions about wire, beads, storage and selling pieces.

There are a lot of Facebook groups and this is a list of the ones I follow:
- Beading, beads and beaders
- Bead weaving with a needle
- Bead chat
- Seed beads and more
- Peyote with a twist
- Beading classes/Instructions
A disadvantage of these groups is that you might get a bit addicted to checking the new creations. When you want to take a quick break from beading and check Facebook for 5 minutes, this might turn into you scrolling through all these groups for much longer! This can easily be fixed, by clicking ‘stop following group’. The posts from the group won’t appear on your Facebook timeline but you are still a member of the group.
