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.

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 Unfortunately, these articles are outdated as Facebook has largely removed Graph Search’s functionality due to privacy concerns.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:
- Use the method above to find groups your friends are members of.
- Click or tap the name of the group to see the group’s page.
