Hence stopping the Facebook page from posting in the group.

Recently Facebook rolled out a handy feature of linking Facebook groups and pages. Linking Facebook pages and groups meant that it was possible to post as a Facebook page in groups. This allows users to give their page more exposure and build a community around it. Everything about the feature from linking, posting in Facebook groups as a page to unlinking the group and page is mentioned in my earlier article. However, I faced an issue while removing the page from the group.

At first, I ignored it thinking that it might be some sort of glitch in my account. But one of our readers(Erin) encountered the similar issue where even after unlinking the group the Facebook page was showing up in the group toggle menu while posting and it could still post.

Unlink Facebook group and page

Even after unlinking the group and page, Facebook page can still post in the group

After looking at Erin’s comments I knew that there is something to it. After digging deep into it I found out an interesting thing that you should also know.

Unlinking Facebook group from page only removes the page as an admin of the group. The unlinked Facebook page still remains the group member. You can verify the same using the following procedure.

After unlinking the Facebook group from the page by going to that particular Page > Groups > clicking on the down arrow against Group name and selecting Unlink Group. Navigate to the group which you just unlinked from the Facebook page. Under that group, click on Members. In Members, you will see that particular page listed. On selecting Admin tab, you won’t find that particular page because you unlinked it.

As the Facebook page is still a member of the group it shows the up as a profile that can post to the group in the toggle menu.

You can follow the method below to remove the Facebook page from the group and hence removing it from showing up in the toggle menu while posting in a group.
