I found a Facebook group showing groups "Recommended by the admins". I would like to use it, but I do not understand how.

The feature "Recommended by the admins"


To quote the Facebook Help Center:

If you're a group admin, you can recommend other groups by linking them to your group. You can only link groups you admin.

To link a group:

  1. Go to your group and click below the cover photo.
  2. Select Link Existing Group to link a group you already admin, or select Create New Linked Group.
  3. Search for the group's name then click Link. If you create a new linked group, choose a group name and privacy setting and then click Create.
  4. After the group is linked, you'll have the option to write a post about it.
  • When I posted the question, this was not available for my 3000 members group. Now the feature is available. – Michele Dorigatti Jan 25 '18 at 16:03

Click on "Link existing group" in the dropdown you posted a screenshot of above. When you link your group, it will show in the "Recommended by the Admins" section.


It is available for some groups, but I don't know based on which criteria:

Group should have at least 5000 members before you can have that function. Cheers

  • People who downvoted: can you explain me why? – Michele Dorigatti Aug 14 '17 at 8:56

It appears this feature was removed.

  • You're wrong about your answer, it still exists. And it would be better for next time if you'll improve your answers and add references when needed. – arieljannai Mar 17 '18 at 16:53
