Following up on the stupendous success of the Facebook Messenger app, the social media giant has launched a Facebook Groups apps for the 700 million people who used the service.
“With the Facebook Groups app, you can easily discuss, plan and collaborate – nothing gets lost in the shuffle of text messages or email, and you can choose how and when to receive notifications. 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,” said a release from Facebook.
In a blog post, Product Manager Shirley Sun said the app helps people share faster and more easily with all the groups in their life. “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.”
Plus there is a Discover tab, where you’ll see groups suggested to you based on Pages you’ve liked, groups your friends are in and where you live.
Facebook Groups will still be part of the main Facebook app and on desktop.
