Introduction

Facebook Groups make it easy to find other people on Facebook who have similar interests. If, over time, the group either becomes no longer active or you just no longer want to participate in it, you can leave a Facebook group. In this article I’ll show you how to leave a Facebook group on both the Facebook mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices, and also the Facebook.com website. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in both the YouTube video above and the image collection located beneath the steps.
