    So I was managing a FB group I have, and was looking at the URL when I was approving join requests. The end of the URL was
    requests/?notif_t=group_r2j

    When I got a notification that a friend has requested to join a group I was a member of, BUT NOT AN ADMIN, I added that bit to the end of the groups URL. Sure enough, it let me add my friends to the group, even though I'm not an admin.I tried this with several groups, and it worked each time.

    So a Groups url looks something like this:
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/1234567890/

    Change it to:
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/1234567890/requests/?notif_t=group_r2j

    and you can add everyone that has requested to join the group. Looks like it only works with groups you have already joined. I'm sure some of you guys can do something with this :cool:

    If you are a member of a group you can add your friends (auto approve) and not need to be an admin

    Are you sure that works for every fb group? No matter the permissions that are set for it?
