Facebook guidance, please

So, I have this "Save DNA Lounge" Facebook group. Dear Lazyweb, please tell me how to use it properly.

I wanted to send out an update to the people who joined the group about recent press (basically the same thing I just published in my DNA blog.)

I used "Message All Members" to do this.

Apparently what that does is, makes something show up in everybody's facebook "Inbox". But it doesn't show anything in their news feed, and it doesn't send them email about it. I think.

I guess my other options would have been to just post a "link" to the group (would that have shown up in the news feed? Who can tell?) or to edit some text into the "Recent News" field. (That appears also to not show up in the feed. I think.)

Is "Message All Members" the done thing? Or should I have done something else?

It's also infuriating that I can't type HTML anywhere on Facebook.

And that there is no place on the profile of the main DNA Lounge Facebook page to link to the "Save DNA Lounge" group, or even to include a sentence about what the hell DNA Lounge is.

"Facebook: At Least It's Not Myspace."™
