Facebook has finally noticed that aside from the Fan pages, it still has another facility for Facebook members to work together, collaborate and communicate – the Facebook Groups. For quite sometime now, Facebook groups has been neglected in the sideline as Facebook put more emphasis into promoting Facebook pages. Well, this is understable since it is the mostly used facility for companies to get their brands on Facebook. But now Facebook is finally improving the Groups functionality.Here are the changes that Facebook is rolling out to its Groups service.
- redesigned look and feel to make it similar to Facebook profiles and Pages
- Groups will now have a Wall that summarizes recent activities of Groups members
- Group activities will now be part of News Feed
- Sort/Filter Groups news feed like Pages and Profile updates
Obviously, Facebook wants to make its Pages exclusively for the use of businesses, organization, public figure or other entity. While establishing Groups as the official communication and collaboration channel for member-to-member networking.
The new features of Facebook Groups are being rolled out gradually to members. It will take some time before you notice Groups updates appearing on your Facebook home page. So, if you are a member of many Facebook Groups, you might want to start filtering out which of these Groups you’d want to receive Wall updates from.
