Yes, please make this possible. I have a group formed to honor an exemplary teacher and students from all over the country are posting memories and photos, but I can only make a facebook book based on my own profile. This would be awesome if Blurb could make an addition to their facebook books by allowing users to add a whole group. THANK YOU Xs 1,000,000 in advance!
Idea: Facebook Group to Book
What is a Facebook profile or a Facebook group, but a story? Thoughts, dialogs, pictures are all strung together to tell the story of a group of people. And where do stories belong? In a book of course! Take for example my youth soccer team. It's a community of 35 families that for three months share information about games, coordinate rides, report on game results, share pictures, tell stories, etc. As great as Facebook it, it will change, upgrade, update, purge and maybe even go away. But a book.... ah, that's something that will be around that my son can show his kids someday. Business case? You want a business case? Suppose 5% of Facebook profiles and groups had 1/3 of their people order a book - that's some new revenue that Blurb hasn't seen.
So here's what I want for Christmas: I would like to point Blurb at a Facebook group or my profile, specify a date range, and tell it to auto generate a book for me. It would include all the text, pictures. I would then be able to edit the book, adding stuff like a title, maybe some intro stuff, rearrange some pictures, delete content, etc.
Listen, I'm going to find a away to do this. Just hope it's Blurb!

I too would like to be able to get photos, cute memories etc from a Facebook group page. We are trying to make a kindergarten yearbook using the photos and posts from our class Facebook page. Since blurb can already make books using Facebook I would hope this would be an easy feature to add! Please pretty please blurb!! :) Thank you!
Does anyone know whether this is possible yet? I was just searching the web with the same question.
Yes, this is the service I am looking for. I want to create a book from a FB group created to follow the experience of an individual in a foreign country for a couple of years. Would love to be able to create chronological book of this experience without much editing on my part!
I have precisely this same need - with the same parameters - which are very well described above. I know and love the Blurb interface, and want to apply it to a Facebook group which contains content that I want to self-publish for a formal presentation... Please, make this happen. Let me know how I can help!
There is another site out there that has been offering this group photo book service. I have been having problems with that site. So yes, please, Blurb, please come up with a reliable way to turn a fb group into an amazing memory filled book!!!
Agreed would love to see this become a reality. All my sons photos have been shared in a private group but I would love to be able to turn it into a book.
YES!!!!! Please allow making a book from a group. FAST!!! Another company used to do this. I made a private group for a principal who is retiring after 23 years based on the ability to turn it into a book. We were going to present the book to her on May 31st, 2015. I went in to create the book tonight on the other site and the site says, "As of April 15, 2015, Facebook is not letting them access the groups to make a book."
Exactly the ability I am looking for . . . . .
. . . . . but I assume that this won't happen since I don't see any links or instructions.
