    Hi guys

    I was just wondering if it's still possible to change the name of a Facebook group.

    I go to one of my groups and click the link for 'Edit group settings' underneath the group picture but I can't find anywhere where you can actually change the name of the group. I know that this was possible in the past.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks guys.

    Steve.

    Facebook Seem To Have Modified This Feature.

    Some Of My Groups I Can, & Some I Cannot.

    Maybe Its The 5000 Member Rule Again?
    Below You Can Change.
    Above You Can't.

    It Seems They Are Ammending This As It Was A Feature That Let Everyone Know About The Name Change, This Had The Effect Of People Revisiting The Page.

    Well, I have a group of 300 members (for love, not money), and I can't seem to edit the name of it anywhere, so it can't be the below 5,000 members rule I don't think.

    It seems its just taking a while for some peoples groups to update with the new ruling. I expect they will eventually have changed all the groups to this option.

    I see. Well it'll provide a good question for sellers as I'm looking at buying some groups of around 5000 members, so.

    So it's worth noting that if you're looking at buying some FB groups you should ask the question.
