Depends on how the old one was set up. The people you don't know are probably alumni. Are you setting up the new page to be active only to active students or will the "new" alumni be allowed to stay on the page after graduation? |
Facebook is really a way to promote the group, not communicate directly to, so if you are after a way to reach only current members and their families I would look at a different option like Charms, groupme, etc.. You can set up so that people cannot comment but again, what is your purpose?If you want comments and you are allowing the new alumni to stay then you are one year away from "people you don't want to comment" be able to comment again. You can make private which will help keep the general public away and you can set it up so that you have to approve every member that joins.
Do you even have access to the old page? If you have access, go back and turn off comments. Maybe the alumni are proud of the group. If they are commenting or have created drama, remove those posts and moving forward, don't allow comments. If someone becomes a problem, remove them.
Personally, if I were setting one up I would probably start new and use the school email address to set it up so that it has nothing to do with your personal page. Plus, this way you can hand it off to your predecessor or task it out to an assistant to maintain the page later.
