How to Search for a Group on Facebook?

    Hi,

    I'm trying to find some groups to join on Facebook but the thing is that I cannot find any.
    If I go to facebook.com/groups.php I'm shown a blank page with a button to create a group.

    I don't want to create a group, just find some popular groups to join.

    Then there's an app called "Groups" - I activated the app but it doesn't do anything.

    When I try the search bar, all I can find is people and pages. For example, there's a group called "Blue Widget Appreciation Society"
    If I search for it on Facebook, it shows up as a page that I can "Like" even though it is a group. Normally, a group would have a "Join" button.

    How do you search for groups?
    Thanks!

    I think this problem is temporary, later you will get your group by general search, for now use advance search option in Google.

    Thank you for the response. I do hope this is temporary. Good idea about the Google search. I get some decent results with this query:
    Keyword inurl:facebook.com/group.php
