Leaving A Group On Facebook

Facebook allows users to create groups based on common ideas, interests, and locales. You can either join a group with permission from the group admin or be added by a contact who is already a member. Unfortunately, you may find a Facebook group uninteresting or some of the group posts irrelevant.

Furthermore, sometimes we may find it annoying when some member adds us to a Facebook group without first informing us. The best solution: Leave the group. Here’s an easy tutorial on how to leave a group on Facebook via desktop and mobile.

Steps (via desktop):

  1. Access your group by clicking its name. You may find it at the left pane of your homepage.
  2. Click the gear icon at the right portion of your group page. This can be found just beside the Notifications tab.
  3. From the dropdown menu, choose Leave group.

Steps (via mobile):

  1. Access your group by clicking its name.
  2. Locate the Info tab. This is usually found below the group profile pics.
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the Info tab, click Leave group.

Things you need to know:

  1. You can leave a Facebook group anytime you wish.
  2. Other members of the group will not receive a notification if you leave the group.
  3. The group will be deleted from your group list. Consequently, your name will also be removed from the member list of the group.
  4. You can no longer access the group’s news stories in your News feed and get notifications from the group.
  5. Even if you have viewed a group post while you were still a part of the group, other members will no longer know when you’ve seen a group post.
  6. Once you leave a group, other members can’t add you unless you explicitly request to be re-added.
