Has anyone found a real answer to this? I deleted my facebook group that was "secret" and I was the only admin of at the time. I also had the setting to where I had to except people that were invited. I'm pretty sure it is deleted since I have messaged a few members and they cant see it either. How do I recover it: I didn't want to delete it. How do I recover it? I don't want to hear that I can't. There has to be away. Now I suggest you Create facebook group new.
