All Facebook groups by default have an address. However at the end there is a long number at the end which makes it difficult to remember. You can set the own group’s address which can be accessed by everyone easily.

An example is given below on how the group address of Facebook looks. It is not possible to remember the link and you would not be able to access it without any exact link.

The custom link is readable as well as can be remembered easily.

You can set the group’s custom address:

You should be the group’s admin to set link.

You can log in to your Facebook account and choose the group for which you want to set a custom URL on the left side of the page. Several groups are hidden by default in order to keep the list organized. You might have to hover the mouse over group area as well as click more button if you want to see all the groups.

Now when you are in the group click gear icon at top right of the window and choose edit group settings from menu.

You can find group address option in the Group Settings page and click on the Set Up Group Address button. You are setting up an email address for your group; the name of email would be used in the web address for group.

You can enter the desired group name in the field. Try to keep the name short as well as related to the group. Other people can remember address easily. When done click ‘set address button’. You just note that you can set the address once. Just be careful with choice. Once it is set you cannot change the name.

The Facebook group email would be in the format:  your-custom-name@groups.facebook.com.  The email which has been sent to this address would reach all group members.

The group address would be in the following format: facebook.com/groups/your-custom-name. This address can be sent to everyone and the group can be reached from any browser.
