    Is there a shortcut for this? as some people know, if u visit a group without an admin, you can decide to become the admin.
    also, is there a way to merge groups together (to become one super group)?

    As far as I know: groups cannot exist without an admin. If an admin decide to leave the group as admin, the second member (based on joint date) will be chosen for the adminship.

    lol what happens is this
    if an admin leaves a group, when you click on the group, a popup shows saying 'help this group, would you like to become an admin?'

    i have taken over 8 groups this way (i do a lot of group spam)
    I just want to know a way to instantly know, or maybe run a script that shows groups without an admin...
    (one thing however, is that you do need to be a member of a group, and you have to click on the group and be on the groups page to get this blue pop-up to show)

    PS: i would advise against posting in groups alot. facebook has tracked me down and banned my account until i show them id

    Wow, I didn't know that. So to make your question clear to me: you're looking for a nifty tool that offers you groups without an admin? Never heard of it before.

    yes, same here. it's pretty useful to get a niche market with a couple thousand members

    i had 11 groups prior. all niche, 1000 - 10,000 members....

    got 8 more just by clicking all the groups i was in, and seeing if the blue popup came. it is very rare to come accross.

    if u have an account that you have joined many groups with ... and u have like half hour to kill, i'd say click on each group (open new tab) and see if u can become an admin in any. as soon as u click on the tab for the group, the blue thing will popup within the first 2 seconds of being on the page.....

    luckily i was able to change all of the names of the groups. its a good starting foundation too if u wanna make a group ... cuz if u get lucky, there are already 2000+ members in the group and it looks legit

    Definitely not true, it will not choose a random person, someone needs to want to be an admin, something along the lines of 'help this group, would you like to become an admin?' . Also got a group like that before, totally random I might say, I was just browsing my groups and saw this popping up :) nothing too amazing, though it was a nice find.
    Can't say I heard of any bot to find this, maybe there are private bots out there doing this all day long though..
    As for merging the groups from what i know they need to have related names to do that...or that might have changed...

    I believe the current admin has to choose a new admin before leaving the group or deleting his/her facebook account.

    nope, they can just leave. if a group is heavily spammed, admins usually just leave .. because they are not marketers.

    I can confirm that current admin can just leave, and the group will be withOUT an admin until someone steps up to the platter.
    I've managed to get 4 small groups like that myself, less than 100 ppl.

    I've never seen or heard of any situations where fb auto approve the next person to be an admin.
    To the OP, merging groups isn't possible. Each group has its own "id". I suspect that fb does not make this possible (like with pages) because then that would probably be an entirely different headache for fb to deal with, as groups would prob grow from mergers to over 10 million very easily. My 2 cents tho.

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but I found a group without admin, but there is no option to become an admin. How do you do it?

    You can do it only with public groups. And I think you need to be already a member.

    One day I took one with 1500 members in a good neach :) I clean all the spammers out (like me), and it was a good deal. lol

    WOW, got something new to know today. :p

    I am already a member of 100+ groups but all have a admin. LOL. :p

    It's a very rare case to find a group with no admin. :(
