Creating a Group

  • Groups are a way to give your analysis on more specific topics and to filter out your favorite sports and teams on the sports feed
  • To post on a group you can post via the sports feed by switching the setting and then choosing the group you want to post to or by going to that group directly and posting on that sports feed. All updates in groups will be automatically shown under “all updates” on the home page or under “groups” on the home page assuming that a member has joined said group.
  • To apply to create a group, email Alex at The Up Dawg (goldbergaj@icloud.com) or DM @theupdawg on Instagram
