Admin Can't Add Facebook Members To Group Solved 2016

If you’re an admin of a Facebook Group and can’t add new members in 2016, I’ve solved this problem for you. It’s actually quite simple.


Step 1. Go to write post as if you were going to write a new post but simply tag the members name using the @ symbol.

Step 2. After their name shows up, click on Post and you will see their name is greyed out.

Step 3. Highlight (DO NOT CLICK) their name in the new post and you will see a box pop up that says “Add To Group”. Go ahead and click there, and they are now members of the group.

Step 4. Go back and delete the post to make things normal.

  1. I was COMPLETELY stumped on this one. Your suggestion worked but I think it's dumb I have to do that for every member. I don't even have an option to invite via email. Just a button that says "Invite" and when I click it, it has maybe 20 people I can select from. The list isn't even alphabetized.

  2. Man I was so happy to find this video, but, alas, didn't work for me. There is no Add to Group option for this one guy. A bit of history, I think he was in the group years ago and left (by accident) and now it seems I can't add him back. I tried this with my wife's account indeed I get the Add to Group button. Any ideas on how to get someone back into a secret group? Thanks for the video – this is a problem many people have and your solution is easy.

  3. Thank you so much!! It's been giving me a headache all day trying to figure this out. I think this will only work for people who have permissions in their own page to be tagged or added etc. Basically they need to have more public permissions. This worked for only 2 of the 4 people I tried to add. The other two have more private settings on their personal fb pages. Cheers!

  4. Just received this from FB Groups Team:We're making some updates to how members are invited to your group, and we wanted to share these changes with you. To help ensure that people join Facebook Groups that are relevant and meaningful to them, you'll see the following changes:• Updated group invitation – Now, when people are invited to a group, they can accept or decline the invite. Before, people could be added to groups by friends who thought they might be interested in them, and they'd immediately become a member. Some people may have been added to your group, but have never visited it.• Invited section – In the next few weeks, people who've been added to your group – but have never visited it – will appear in the Invited section of your Members list, which only admins and moderators can view. They won't be considered a member until they've accepted their invite. This means they will no longer be included in your group's total member count, so you may see a decrease in your group's total member count.• Reminder notification – As you're an admin, in the next few weeks, you'll be able to send one notification to invited people to remind them to accept or decline the invite to your group.

  5. I've had a couple of people trying to get added into a group that I'm the admin for, and I've even tried adding them, and it just keeps saying they've been added to the group, and yet they're not. 🙁 Very frustrating.)
    I've tried this method that you shared here now, and it's still not working. Help??

  6. Thank you x 100!! I’ve been banging my head against my computer all dang it day and finally ran into your video! You have no idea how relieved I am…. or maybe you do lol?! Will continue to follow you!
