People use Facebook Groups every day to stay in touch with family, collaborate on projects, plan trips and offer support to friends.
Today, Facebook introduced a new Facebook Groups app that helps people share faster and more easily with all the groups in their life. The company built this app with the people who use groups the most in mind, like:
- Students from Donda’s House, an arts nonprofit in Chicago, who use groups to stay in touch during and after a 12-week music program.
- A class of dental students in Brazil who use a group to post notes and reminders about upcoming tests and due dates.
- Nine best friends spread out across Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and England who use a group to keep connected.
Here’s how it works:
When you open the app, you’ll see all your Facebook Groups in one place. Groups you use most frequently are at the top, and you can quickly move between each group.
Easily start a new group by tapping Create.
You can also track notifications and easily control which notifications you want to see.
In the new Discover tab, you’ll see groups suggested to you based on Pages you’ve liked, groups your friends are in and where you live.
You can still use Facebook Groups in the main Facebook app and on desktop, and over time we’ll continue to make those experiences faster and better, too.
Facebook Groups, part of Facebook Creative Labs, is available in all countries on Android and iOS today.
