How to delete a Facebook group?

On Facebook, making a group could be both helpful for finding your friends or family members -even if they are overseas- and have a nice chat with them and also participate in peer groups, to learn something new and upgrade your skills. But sometimes, some issues make you decide to put an end to all of these trends and simply quit it.


There are few things you should care about; the process of deleting a Facebook group depends on your status in that group. If you are an admin and created the page, you can delete it without facing any problem. Note by deleting the page, other members will not be notified. If you are an admin but have not created that page, you are only allowed to delete it if the original creator of the page has left the group.

Another important tip you should be informed of is that deleting a group is a permanent process and if you are only the admin of the group, you can just archive it (no new member will join).
