I didn't read the link yet but I posted something on a friend's FB post of a WaPo article (below) that I think is germane

It's easy to think that Facebook implemented these downsides deliberately. Before these added emojis, someone would post something sad or wrong and people would click "like," then immediately explain that they didn't "like" it but wanted to respond somehow, "I wish there was a sad face" etc. I think it's unfair to Facebook that we blame them for our own response to things. Certainly I click "like" on a joke or post mostly as an acknowledgment of the person's post or comment as often as I do to indicate that I actually like what they posted. If I click one of the others, it is indeed more of an endorsement of the post. So... facebook's five points is probably valid. The fact that they then show us content that is likely to elicit a similar response is also a user requested feature: "I don't want to see this sort of thing on my timeline!" used to be something people said every single day. They took years to study the emojis and implemented them. Other features got a trial for a year or so then quietly went away. Even if FB sees something going haywire, they can't just wish it away and revert to some earlier system because that had problems they don't want to return to.But it's good to understand that by clicking a "sad" emoji, I'm likely to see more sad posts. Which is not what I want from my user experience. But come to think of it, I use the other emojis sarcastically as often as not.

Five points for anger, one for a ‘like’:

How Facebook’s formula fostered rage and misinformation

We are not to blame, much in the same way we've come to appreciate the use of opioids.   FB prays on individual weakness and exploits users on a scale unavailable without machines.  They are the drug dealer on the playground....handing out samples and ramping up the "high" over time. 

Sure, we are not all addicted, but enough of us are to create problems.

Yay, another moral panic!

Rain of drones to be expected at nightfall.

"multicopter drone 'fireworks' show goes wrong when the drones lose connection to their controller and on some models they default to 'immediately land' if they lose connection"

Yes. There is this thing called the " offer you can't refuse" filter. Refuse it...

Laughter of the day: An Instagram user filed a lawsuit against Facebook because the app had activated the camera without asking.
That wasn't the laugh yet. The laugh is Facebook's lame excuse:

Facebook denied the allegation, claiming that it was merely a bug in the software that falsely issued a notification that the software had accessed the camera.

Oh the camera was on? * Whistle * * flute * That must have been a regrettable bug!

I have a group. People like and follow it.

That group has an event (shared from another group). I'd like to invite people who like and follow our group to this event. Is there a way to do that? Seems like there used to be but I can't find it.
 

I think if you're on the group page, you have to change "posting as" from The Group to your personal profile, then try it. Maybe.

A guess:

Make sure the event you wish to share is open to 'public'.  Then, it should be shareable into a private group.

Post is public and I can invite members of other groups to the event, just not the members of the group it's posted in.
