Facebook launches new feature for billions of users across the World
Facebook has started testing a new feature to allow users to discover conversations in 'public groups' on their news feed. The social media giant has also introduced new tools to help group administrators moderate posts in the groups more efficiently. "More than 1.8 billion people use Groups every month, and there are tens of millions of active communities on Facebook where people come together to talk about their interests, learn new things, be entertained and make connections," Facebook said in a blogpost.
It added that the company has also "made changes to reduce harmful content and misinformation".
To help more people find and connect with communities, the social media platform is going to start testing new ways for people to discover conversations in public groups on and off Facebook, it said.
It added that users may see 'Related Discussions in News Feed' when someone posts a link or re-share a post on Facebook. "This will let you dive deeper and see what other groups are saying about the same content," it said.
