How to Change a Facebook Group Name (2021)

Want to know how to change a Facebook Group name?

It’s actually pretty easy… Under one condition… You have less than 5,000 members. If you have over 5,000 members there is no possible way to change the name of your Facebook Group. Facebook claims this is because “closed and public group names, members and group descriptions are visible to anyone and may be seen as part of someone’s identity on Facebook.”

So if you’re reading this blog and you’ve got over 5,000 members, sorry can’t help you :p! If you’re reading this blog and you’ve got close to 5,000 members – make a decision, either change it or forever hold your peace! 

A couple of other important things to note

  • You obviously need to be an Admin of the Group to change the name
  • You can only change the name of the Group once every 28 days

Anyways, without further ado, here’s how to change a Facebook Group name
