How to Block Suggestions for Groups on Facebook

Facebook Groups give users the ability to connect with their friends and others in smaller networks tailored to specific interests, organizations and even local social circles. The users who create these groups can send out invites to friends connected on their profiles. These invites to old groups appear in the invited user's requests and invitations menu, but the system for new Facebook groups does not use suggestions or invite confirmations. You can still decline suggestions to old groups.
