Joining the WPS Facebook Group

First Things First

If you do not yet have a Facebook profile but would like to set up one, even if only to participate in the Society Group discussions, then follow the instructions below. It is very simply to set up a profile (and you can add as much or as little information about yourself as you like).

If you don’t have a Facebook account, you can sign up for one in a few steps:

Go to
If you see the signup form, fill out your name, email address or phone number, password, birthday and gender. If you don’t see the form, click Sign Up, then fill out the form.
Click Sign Up.

Joining the WPS Facebook Group

Once you have created your Facebook profile, or already have one, follow the link below to the Group and click on ‘request to join’.  NOTE:  if you are not already logged into Facebook you will see the Facebook login screen, first.

A notice will then be sent to one of the Group admins to verify that you are a WPS member and they will admit you.

Once admitted you will be free to post images for comment and the monthly informal competition, ask questions or start discussions, and be kept up to date on extracurricular outings and events.

The Group is for members only so please feel secure that this is a safe place to ask for constructive comments on your images or start discussions.

Avoiding a Little Confusion (Group vs Page)

The Society has both a Facebook Group and a Facebook Page.

The group is described above. The Page can be be found at the link below.

The Page is the public face of WPS on Facebook and anyone on Facebook can see anything posted here. We use the Page to post a daily interesting photography update and to promote our relevant competitions and special guest speakers to an external audience. If you are interested in receiving these updates in your Facebook ‘newsfeed’ then please make sure that you click on the ‘like’ button on the Page.

Need Some Help?

If you are not sure about all of this and would like to talk to someone about the Society on Facebook please ask one of the Committee members on a Tuesday evening.
