Facebook Groups go live



Facebook recently announced its Groups app designed to help users easily and quickly share information with friends, family and colleagues. SHIRLEY SUN, Product Manager at Facebook gives us some more information on the app and how it works.

People use Facebook Groups every day to stay in touch with family, collaborate on projects, plan trips and offer support to friends. We’re introducing a new Facebook Groups app that helps people share faster and more easily with all the groups in their life. We built this app with the people who use Groups the most in mind, like:

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 iOS and Android today.
