Is Facebook group advertising a thing?

Does someone know if it's possible to do advertising with a Facebook group like with Facebook pages? Curious to know.

No, it's not. I do know people who use the strategy of creating a friendly URL that is used in the ad, that then redirects to the Facebook group.
