“My fiancé and I met in a group on Facebook. RapidVisa says that I need to get a form from the website admin stating that the website isn’t an international marriage broker. But if it’s just a group page on Facebook, how am I supposed to get a letter like that?” 

I believe what you’re referring to is you met through an online dating site. USCIS sometimes assumes that those are international marriage brokers. However, if it’s Facebook, you can just download and print the Facebook terms of use and terms of service and submit those instead of the letter. 

USCIS is familiar with Facebook and realizes that it is a social media site. You can just list that in your questionnaire that it’s a social media site.

However, it’s different if you met through an online dating site. At that stage, you do require a written statement from an online dating website stating that they are not an international marriage broker and why they’re exempt from the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA).
