Groups are a great way to see new content inside of EveryoneSocial. You can join Groups based on interest or an Admin can automatically assign you to a Group when you create your account.

But what do you do if you find yourself in a Group that doesn’t interest you any more or is no longer relevant?

Should this become the case, you may decide to leave a Group. 

🔸 This is accessible to all roles and permission levels.

How to Leave a Group

When you decided that you no longer want to be a member of a Group, follow the steps below to leave a Group.

  1. Go to Groups.
  2. Select Following.
  3. Click Leave.


Once you’ve successfully left the Group, the gray Leave button will be gone and a blue Join button will take its place. You can rejoin whenever you like; just follow the steps in our article on joining a Group.


Why don’t I see the Leave button beside some Groups?

There are a few reasons why you might not see a Leave button beside the Group you’d like to leave. Those are:

  1. Group membership is required.
    You can not leave required Groups.
  2. You're the Group Owner.
    Group Owners must delete the entire Group in order to leave it.
  3. You're assigned a Moderator role.
    Moderators must go the the Group's Timeline for the Leave button to present itself. 


If you don’t see the option to leave the Group, please contact your Admin.

Can I leave a Group I created?

In order to leave a Group you created, you must first delete the Group. Go to the Group's settings and scroll down to click Delete Group.


All members of the Group will instantly leave the Group and data. Data will remain but will be considered in the "removed" state.
