Facebook group without admin

When someone creates a new Facebook group, the creator of the Facebook group will become an admin automatically. Then he can also add other admins to the Facebook group if he wants to do so.

However, it is possible that all Facebook group admins have left the group and currently nobody in the Facebook group has the admin role. This can be an issue as a lot of tasks can only be done by the admins.

Also, if a Facebook group doesn’t have an admin for a longer period of time, it is possible that Facebook might archive the Facebook group.

In this case, even regular members can take over the Facebook group as admins, by claiming the admin role in the members section of the Facebook group.

Let’s see how you can do that.

  1. Open the Facebook group

Can’t become admin of a Facebook group that has no admins

If the Facebook group doesn’t have any administrator currently, but you can’t claim the admin role, here is the most common reason for this.

When a Facebook group doesn’t have an admin, Facebook might invite members of the Facebook group to become admins. These members will be invited based on signals like previous group participation or if they have a moderator role in the group.

When Facebook has invited members to the admin role, regular members can’t claim the admin role in the Facebook group.

Why you should become an admin of a Facebook group without permission?

There are two main reasons why you should become an admin of a Facebook group:

  1. Certain tasks can only be done by the Facebook group admin:
    1. adding moderators to the group
    2. changing the name of the Facebook group
    3. change the Facebook group type or the privacy type
  2. Facebook can archive a Facebook group if it doesn’t have an admin for a longer period of time.
