How to turn on a Facebook group badge?

By default, Facebook turns these Facebook group badges on, but it will start displaying them when the number of group members exceeds 50.

You can check which Facebook badges are turned on and turn on disabled ones like so:

  1. Open the Facebook group.
  2. Click on ‘Settings’ on the left column
  3. Search for the ‘Badges’ section and click on the pencil iconturn on Facebook group badges
  4. Turn on group badges you want to be enabled
  5. Click on the ‘Save’ button

Obviously, you have to be a Facebook group admin to be able to check these and turn any of the group badges on.

How to turn off Facebook group badges?

If you don’t like certain Facebook group badges, you can easily turn them off as well:

  1. Open the Facebook group
  2. Click on ‘Settings’ on the left column
  3. Search for the ‘Badges’ section and click on the pencil icon
  4. Turn off group badges you want to be enabled
  5. Click on ‘Save’

Facebook members can also turn these Facebook group badges off for themselves.

Can’t see Facebook group badges

Keep in mind that Facebook group badges will show up for group members only if the Facebook group has more than 50 group members.

You will also not see Facebook badges in groups if the Facebook group admin has turned if off in the Facebook group.

There are also some badges that you will naturally lose after a certain period of time. For instance, obviously if you have received a ‘New member’ Facebook badge, it will disappear after around 2 weeks after you have joined the Facebook group.

Last but not least, as we have mentioned you can also turn off Facebook badges for yourself.

Should you enable or disable the Facebook group badges?

It doesn’t really make sense to disable these fun Facebook group badges.

Worst case scenario, it doesn’t have any effect on the group engagement.

But sometimes, it can help boost the group engagement, as some members will get extra motivation to be active members of the Facebook group.

So we would definitely enable the Facebook group badges in any Facebook group.
