Facebook is a place that brings people together, allows us to stay connected with our friends and family, and also discover people with similar interests to us. There are several communities on Facebook where people who share common interests and likes come together and get to know each other better. For this purpose, people create groups on the platform for like-minded people to have a common place to converse with one another and see each other’s content.
At this point, there are so many active groups on Facebook that we possibly cannot fathom. Several smaller communities of people have created these groups in order to share posts and stories and have conversations with one another.
