The Closed is you have to be a member of the group to see what s happening in the group.

Then the Private is by invite only.

Follow the Rules.

Depending on the type of group you have joined many don’t like people to just jump in and start pimping your wares. You need to first read the rules and follow them. If You don’t follow the rules you can get kicked out of the group. So provide value.
