Facebook local community group - public or private?

    Hi, I run a local community Facebook "Page" for my village/area. There are around 700 followers. I have an issue where my followers can't post directly onto the page, so I'm spending a lot of admin time in re-posting their messages and posts onto the page.

    I'm looking to recreate a "group" instead of this page (evetually close the page) to allow my followers to join as members, so they should be able to interact more easily.

    My question is, should I keep this group open or should I mark it as private? I'm only concerned about getting spam and fake users trying to access it.

    Any thoughts on this?
