Facebook: How To Search for a Group
Log in to Facebook and type the Group name, or keywords for the Group you're
searching for, into the Search box and click See More Results at the bottom.
You'll arrive at a landing page featuring what Facebook thinks are the most
relevant results for you. Filter the search results by clicking Groups on the left.
Available Groups with the exact or similar name will show.
Once you ﬁnd the Group you’re searching for, click the name to ensure it's the
correct Group. This will allow you to view content on the Group, such as the
Wall and Info.
If you want to join the Group, click the Join button at the top of the screen.
Note that there are three levels of Groups:
Open Groups: Anyone can join and invite others to join. Group info and
content can be viewed by anyone and may be indexed by search engines.
Closed Groups: Admins must approve requests for new members to join.
Anyone can see the Group description, but only members can see the Wall,
Discussion Board, and Photos.
Secret Groups: The Group will not appear in search results or in the proﬁles of
its members. Membership is by invitation only, and only members can see the
Group information and content.
Once you've joined a Group or your request has been approved, you can visit
the Group's page to connect with other members. Updates from Groups will
appear in your News Feed, but will come from the Group Admin rather than
the Group itself. Or the Group Admin can message you directly.
