The best Viennese facebook groups


Facebook is the most popular social network with over 1 billion users. Nowadays, almost everyone in every age has a facebook profile and might be considered "dead" or "non-existent"  if not... 



But now all jokes aside. Facebook may either make you waste a lot of time, or... waste a lot of time BUT ALSO get some benefits. You can use it to gather information, to promote something or to meet people with similar interests. Every facebook user can create a group and many English groups exist for Vienna too. Let's talk about those which are useful for residents of Vienna as well as for newcomers.




Everyday life in Vienna; Support for foreigners 


Foreigners in Vienna  - with over 13 000 members and only 1 admin makes the biggest and most popular Viennese facebook group. According to the official description it's mainly for "those new to the region & living here whether it be Creed, Colour or Race. We are after all one human race."
Foreign in Vienna 2  - founded in 2008 and renewed in 2011. Their aim is "to bring people in Vienna together - foreigners, locals and everything in between". As a member you can participate in events such as brunch, or "after-work-get-together" ("Stammtisch"). Besides, it's managed by 10 admins what makes it one of the best organized groups.

  4. I joined "foreigners in Vienna" for two weeks but nobody reply me. Therefore, I can't post anything on the group. Does anyone know what I can do? Thanks.

    1. Try to send request again and all posts have to be accepted by the admin, what sometimes can take a few hours. For more information please, contact the group's admin.
