How To Delete A Group On Facebook

Need to know how to delete a group on Facebook? If you are a Facebook user, you have no doubt seen some of the many groups that users have created.  Maybe you even created a group yourself.  If you created or joined a group and no longer visit the group or don't want it showing up on your profile, you can delete it.  There are two different processes, depending on whether you are the group's creator or if you are only a member. 

Delete a Group You Created

  3. Leave the group.  Click the "Leave Group" link located in the sub-menu on the group's main page.  A box will pop up with a warning telling you that if you leave, the group will be deleted; click "Remove" to verify that you want to leave the group.  You can check to see that the group was deleted by searching for it; the group will be removed from the group listings.
