With the aim to put online communities at the centre of Facebook, the social networking giant is testing the expansion of its Groups feature.
According to the reports coming in, the social media giant is testing a Groups section in its smartphone app that will see it appear alongside the main notifications, friends requests and news feed areas. The Groups feature which is usually hidden in the app’s settings will be brought to the forefront with this move to enable the Facebook experience to centre around online communities.
The new Groups section prominently features a “Discover” page for finding new communities. Facebook started a limited test of Discover last year but has been expanding it to more users recently. The section also features a third page for creating your own group, as well as a special search bar for finding them.
