How to Delete All Members from a Facebook Group At Once

A Facebook group is a community of like-minded people who share valuable tips. For instance, a Facebook group for doctors can discuss the medical profession’s policies and practices.

As a Facebook group creator, you may decide to delete the group for some reason. Maybe the members breached the rules, and you want to pull down the group.

Facebook doesn’t have the feature to remove and delete group members all at once. All it has is to delete members one after the other, and this manual process can be daunting, particularly with over a hundred members in the group.

So, how would you achieve this in the absence of the right feature?

In this post, I will share how to delete all members from the Facebook group at once.

But first, why should you dump your painstaking efforts into creating the group in the first place?

You should:

Considerations Before Deleting Your Facebook Group

Not all situations work as planned. Your Facebook group members disappoint you and want to get rid of the group. Why not think about how you can leverage the hard-earned members in another direction?

Because once you delete the Facebook page, it’s gone for good – all the members, content, and discussion threads. And nothing can be done to revive the Facebook group afterward.

Re-brand the Group

Change the corporate image of the group. 

A re-brand could fix the problem – change the group name, logo, symbol, and motto, add the new brand design to your cover images, and link it to a new Facebook page.

Carefully craft a post for the group, telling members the purpose of the rebrand and how it can be helpful for them.

The target audience might be different. It doesn’t matter. What’s important is that you’re able to communicate your new vision to your members, and they can decide whether to leave the group or not.

You can also ask them to invite people they think will be fit for your new vision. That way – you don’t lose them altogether.

Change the Administration

The fault in your group could be a result of leadership – admins and moderators. 

Appoint a new set of admins to oversee the activities and coordinate support so that you don’t spoil the fantastic relationship the community has already established. Look for active members in the group who might want to take on the role.

Because communication is vital, ensure that you communicate the leadership change to the members. This will help them take time to process the changes.

Archive Your Group

Deleting your group is irreversible.

Archiving it is reversible. 

If you’re hurt and think deleting the group is the option. Why not take a chill and archive it instead? Maybe after a rethink, you might have another good to do with the group.

Archived groups remain as is, with all the content, photos, and threads. And it will still be visible for members to read. Though non-members will not find it in search results, and they won’t be able to join it, it’s there in the archive.

The admins can still block and delete people and threads, but the group descriptions will be unchangeable.

Since archiving is reversible. And you wake up someday to un-archive the group. It’s all yours. Do it, and it will return to active use. 

This is a better option than deleting a group.

It hurts no one, not your members, not you. 

It would just seem that you are on vacation or on a project that doesn’t allow time for the group.

Delete Your Facebook Group

What’s your decision now?

Do you still want to delete the group?

If yes, that may be the right choice anyway. 

However, you should know that deleting a group is permanent. You’ll lose all the content and threads, and there is no turning back.

What To Do Before You Delete Your Facebook Group

Before you hit the delete button, inform your group members about your decision. These people contributed and helped in the growth of the community.  They also have built connections and nurtured relationships over time. It’s fair to inform them, so they don’t find themselves out. 

Also, tell them when you’ll delete the group and suggest other groups they could join. Advise that they download the valuable content they’ve shared if they wish. And they can send a Facebook request to friends they’ve met in the group. 

How to Delete Your Facebook Group Members At Once

1. First of all, open that Facebook group that you want to delete.

2. Then click on the members’ tab from the navigation.

3. All group lists will be visible. Now right-click anywhere and click on the Inspect element or press the F12 button from the keyboard.

4. Now Copy every code given in the below script:

[button color=”” size=”” type=”square” target=”_blank” link=”https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bEaniniqqgCPM-nUXGzW4YIUdu8DEU6I4uZbqPMoeUY/edit?usp=sharing”]Get Script[/button]

5. After that, switch to the console tab and paste the copied script, and press enter.

Congratulations. You’ve successfully deleted your Facebook group. At once.

However, this approach might be nerve-wracking for you if you’re not a techie. That’s why I’m showing you another angle to this.
