      Hi – I’ve just started a new group on Facebook. Someone has just signed up to Facebook with an new account. When you send this account a link to join a Community chat it just goes to the main group page. Everyone else in the group has buttons on the main group page to join the chat but with this new account the button have disappeared. Even if you make this account an Admin the Community chat options are missing from the Admin Tools. It seems impossible to add this account to the chat but there wasn’t any problems with the other accounts.

      Hi John! It sounds like you’re encountering an issue with adding a new account to the community chat in your Facebook group. Here are a few steps you can try to resolve this problem:

      • Check Account Settings: Make sure that the new account’s privacy settings are properly configured to allow interaction within groups and chats. Sometimes, new accounts have more restrictive settings by default.
      • Wait for Account Verification: New Facebook accounts might have limitations placed on them until they are verified. Encourage the new member to complete their profile, add friends, and engage in some activities on Facebook. This might help in lifting some restrictions.
      • Contact Facebook Support: If the issue persists, consider reaching out to Facebook’s support. You can report the issue through the “Help Center” or “Support” options on the platform. They might be able to provide assistance or insights into the problem.
      • Use a Different Device or Browser: Sometimes, issues can arise due to compatibility problems. Ask the new account holder to try accessing the group and chat features using a different device or browser to see if the buttons appear.
      • Temporary Glitch: It’s also possible that there’s a temporary glitch on Facebook’s end. Wait for a while and check again to see if the issue is resolved.
      • Community Chat Settings: Facebook’s interface might change over time. Check the group settings and chat settings to ensure that nothing is inadvertently restricting the new account’s access.
      • Add Through Group Members: If the new account is connected to friends within the group, try having those friends send an invitation or add the new account to the chat. Sometimes, a direct invitation from a member might work even when the regular options don’t.
      • Review Group Rules: Some groups have specific requirements or rules for joining chats. Make sure the new account meets any criteria set by the group administrators.
      If none of these steps work, it’s best to continue seeking assistance through Facebook’s official support channels, as they will have the most up-to-date information and solutions for any technical issues.
