Facebook allows you to browse community chats, which are divided into many different categories.

Maybe there’s an event that needs a community or a theme – such as favourite game or TV show.

These community chats can be set up by people running Facebook groups.

Each community chat can have many different sub-chats.

For example, one channel might be for announcements only, while others might be for off-topic discussions and general socializing.

“Rather than navigating through multiple topics in a single Messenger group chat, the person creating the community chat can organize chats into categories so group members can easily find what’s most interesting to them,” said Loredana Crisan, Head of Messenger at Facebook at Meta.

“For example, a band’s fan group might have a ‘Breaking News’ category with chats related to new albums, tour dates, and group activities.”

You can have event chats for specific moments, view-only broadcast chats, and admin-only chats.

And there’s the option for audio channels so members can talk to each other via voice.

Group admins can moderate the chats with new tools in the app.

That means it’s possible to block, mute or ban users – as well as remove spam or offensive messages.

“We are committed to creating messaging experiences that help people connect with their communities, friends and families,” said Loredana.

“As community chats roll out to more people and groups around the world, we’ll continue to explore new features and ways to make it easier to connect with one another.”
