Facebook Groups app removal notice

On April 22, 2024, Zapier’s current Facebook Group app will stop working due to Meta’s announcement of sunsetting the Facebook Group API. As a result, the Facebook Groups Zapier app will no longer be available to use on Zapier from April 22, 2024. 

 

To prepare, here are a few dates to note:

  • Beginning April 22, 2024, you won’t be able to create any new Zaps using the Facebook Group app.
  • Your Zaps using Facebook Groups will stop working on April 22, 2024.
  • You can access Zaps using Facebook Groups with view-only access until May 22, 2024.

View which of your Zaps use Facebook groups.

 

Alternative solutions

Zapier understands Facebook Groups have been integral to your workflows. It’s important to note that the new Facebook Groups API v19 does not include direct replacements for the triggers and actions you may have been using. This means adjustments to your current workflows will be necessary.


Facebook groups API v19 does however offer support for private relies in Facebook groups. Allowing a business to send a single message to a person who commented on a post or comment on a business’s Facebook Group. There isn’t a timeline for when this new functionality will be available on Zapier.
