Advice/Help with social media.

I am hoping that this does not offend any of the admin team or break any of the site rules.

I am after a bit of advice with regards Facebook. I would like to join a certain closed group that discuss subjects very similar to those that are found on this site (Trying to be diplomatic here by not actually naming the group).
When I search for the group using my Facebook profile nothing is found, it is as if the site is being blocked. However if I do the search using the same titles on my wife's or friend's Facebook profile the group is readily found. Do you know why this is occurring/what I am doing wrong?

I need to actually find the group so that I can submit a request to join.

I am new to this social media stuff and not finding it that easy.

I still intend to use this Forum but it would be nice to see what is also being discussed on the 'other' site.

Regards

Andy

When I click on the link I get - 'This content is currently unavailable'

So I think for some reason it is still being blocked.

Forget the link go to FB and type in rhibs that'll get you to the opening home page where you press request button.

That still does not work using my Facebook page although it works when using it on the wifes page - anyone got any any ideas why my page seems to be blocking the search?

No idea, the above link works for me on my phone (and I am not a member of that group) - takes you to a join link. if you use chrome as your browser you could try incognito mode, other browsers possibly have a similar feature.

Failing that if your wife can join can she invite you from "the inside"?
