My Facebook group can’t be found in search, how to fix it.

Facebook

If your group can’t be found in Facebook search results, it may be because;

  • Your group is hidden from search.
  • You may have accidentally misspelled your group’s name in search.
  • Your group may have been removed for going against our Community Standards.
  • You may have been removed or blocked from the group.

Your Facebook search results are based on things like your Facebook activity and Facebook community activity.

Difference between a visible and hidden Facebook group and how do I change it

Group admins can choose to make their group visible or hidden.

  • Visible: Anyone can find the group in search and other places on Facebook.
  • Hidden: Only members can find the group in search and other places on Facebook.

NOTE: public groups can only be visible. To hide a public group, first change the group’s privacy from public to private, and then hide the group.
