    New facebook FAQ:

    To avoid group takeovers and prevent abuse, we no longer allow group members to become the admin of an "open" group after the original admin has left. The privacy setting of your group can be found in the "Info" tab, under the "Basic Info" section.

    If you are unable to become the admin of a "closed" or "secret" group, please submit a report here.

    "Control your info" team is destroyed this great option with become admin button of thousands of groups without administrator.
    What now people? this is forever? :(

    I have lost many high ranking groups like this, I'm glad its stopped, as now there wont be people reporting groups just to get their hands on them.

    I lost a very nice group only 2 days ago it had 480,000 members and made me thousands, lol oh well i will just have to make another one :)

    lol but most of the groups i have lost have been taken over by normal people who for some reason did not edit anything so i still get a handful of hits from each one every day

    Yeah, I highly doubt they ever put it back. It really is pretty ridiculous to just swipe up a group with so many members, but I guess that's over with.
