We've all heard that parenting requires a village and for some of us, part of that village is definitely found online.

In 2022, 93% of moms reported using some kind of social media and despite a fall in popularity in the world of platforms, the majority of moms still use Facebook as a primary platform. Moms turn to Facebook and social media for everything from news to connecting with others to finding product recommendations for their lives.

A 2015 Pew Center study found that 59% of parents have "come across useful information specifically about parenting" while scrolling through social media, a number that has certainly only increased as social media has become more central to all of our lives. And 42% of all parents surveyed said they had "received social or emotional support from their online networks about a parenting issue in the last 30 days."

But parents who identify as moms especially are seeing the advantage of online networking with 66% of them finding "helpful parenting information" via social media. (48% of dads said the same.) And while social media may be ever-evolving, with more parents exploring other ways to stay connected on different platforms like TikTok, Be Real, and Instagram, Facebook groups may still offer parents who are looking for some more support a way to stay connected.

Take a look at 20 of the best Facebook groups that are worth checking out and joining for a little mom-to-mom support.
