How to get your Facebook Group ID

This post was written for those who need to retrieve a Facebook Group ID for our WordPress Plugin, Feed Them Social. These instructions also apply to anyone trying retrieve your Facebook Group ID for anything.

  1. Go to the Facebook Group you want to display.
  2. Look up in the url of your browser for your group ID.
  3. Copy string of numbers between /’s (be sure NOT to get either of the /’s in there) or copy your group name from the url, just your name not the whole url as depicted in the photo. FYI If you are trying to get the group name or ID for our plugin please note, you cannot show closed groups with our feed them social plugin.

Or you can simply copy your facebook url and paste it in this site to retrieve your ID.


    • No it does not work on closed groups. Group must be open to be able to view posts. You can open the group but just not accept members if you still want to use plugin. Thanks for asking.

  1. How can I fix the mis-spelling of “permissions” on posts that load like this?
    This user’s persmissions are keeping you from seeing this post. Please Click “See More” to view this post on this group’s facebook wall.

    • We will fix this in todays update, thanks for the heads up. You will now be able to add shortcode to your widgets area too with this update.
