How to See What Groups Your Friends are in on Facebook

Facebook groups are a great way for people with similar interests to get together and discuss a topic they’re passionate about. They’re also great for meeting new people and involving yourself in a community of other like-minded individuals.

When looking for a group to join, you might be unsure of where you should even start. As with many things in life, your friends might be able to help! Like you can see what your friends on Facebook like, you can also see what groups they’re in.

In this article, we’ll show you how on your Android, iPhone, or PC.

How to Find Groups Your Friends are in on Facebook

You can find Facebook groups your friends are members of in the Communities (Groups) page on Facebook. Below, we’ll show you step-by-step instructions on how on your Android, iPhone, or PC:

August 2022 Update

Unfortunately, it seems that this feature has been stripped from the latest version of the Facebook mobile app. You can still find groups your friends are in on a PC through the Facebook website however.

The mobile instructions for Android and iPhone below will remain in the event that Facebook returns the feature to the mobile app at a later time, but they may no longer work.


  1. Open the Facebook mobile app and sign into your account.
  2. Tap the 3 bars in the upper right corner and then tap the Groups button.

  3. Tap Discover at the top of the Groups screen.
    Facebook Mobile App Discover Tab on Groups Screen
  4. Scroll down to the Friend’s Groups section (you may have to scroll far) and tap See All.

Groups your friends have joined will be listed on this page. Simply click the group’s tile to learn more about it, or click the Join Group button to join it.

Finding Which Groups a Particular Friend is in on Facebook

There’s some articles out there that suggest that you can use Facebook’s Graph Search to find groups particular friends are in. Unfortunately, these articles are outdated as Facebook has largely removed Graph Search’s functionality due to privacy concerns. It’s no longer possible to list all groups a certain friend is a member of.

You can see the members of a group though, and which friends have joined, as long as the group is public:

  1. Use the method above to find groups your friends are members of.
  2. Click or tap the name of the group to see the group’s page.
  3. On mobile, tap See All in the upper right of the About section and then See All to the right of Members. On Desktop, click the More tab and then Members.

Which friends are a member of this group will be displayed on the following page.

  1. What a bummer to find a article that seems so promising and apparently FB has changed the algorithm yet again so this does not exist or work. Bummer
