Introducing the Facebook group up
People use Facebook Groups every day to stay in touch with family, collaborate on projects, plan trips and offer support to friends.
Today, weâ€™re introducing a newÂ Facebook Groups appÂ 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:
Students fromÂ Dondaâ€™s House, an arts nonprofit in Chicago, who use groups to stay in touch during and after a 12-week music program
A class ofÂ dental studentsÂ in Brazil who use a group to post notes and reminders about upcoming tests and due dates
NineÂ best friendsÂ spread out across Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and England who use a group to keep connected
Hereâ€™s how it works:
When you open the app, youâ€™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, youâ€™ll see groups suggested to you based on Pages youâ€™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 weâ€™ll continue to make those experiences faster and better, too.
Facebook Groups, part ofÂ Facebook Creative Labs, is available in all countries on Android and iOS today.
