Facebook Groups - October 25th 2017, 12:38 AM

So, I created a Facebook group and added some people from my friends list on to there. However, I am unable to add anyone who isn't on my friends list to the group. I checked the help page on group settings, and it said even secret groups should allow you to add anyone. So, I don't understand what the problem is. Why can't I add anyone not on my friends list? I checked this one person's profile, they don't have me blocked and they're friend of friend... so what's the problem here? Am I missing something?

sadly, i have no idea how facebook works since i am not a part of it.
maybe try contact the support might help fix your issues. like those search support things they sometimes have on other websites to see if a similar problem as occurred somewhere else.

also you could try look over all of your setting again, like maybe you've set something wrong in them.

Have you tried it again since posting this? I know that sometimes Facebook will act weird. Also, if you are using the Facebook app there is an even bigger chance that it will act up.

I'd suggest trying it again, if you have not. If it is still not working maybe you could ask one of the friends in the group to try adding people who are friends of a friend. If they can't do it then it might be am indication of a problem going on with Facebook. If they are able to do it then maybe you are doing something wrong, even if it's a really slight change, and they might be able to help you figure it out.
