Human beings are known to be good at a ton of things, and yet there is nothing we do better than growing on a consistent basis. This, in turn, has allowed us to hit upon some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a major part of the stated group. The reason why technology gets to enjoy such a notable presence in our lives is largely predicated upon its unique skill-set. However, if we look a little deeper, we’ll see how the whole runner was also inspired by the manner in which we used those skills. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence, and consequentially, kickstarted a tech revolution. Talk about the ripple effects of this revolution, they will go on to enhance the human horizons in every conceivable regard, but even after achieving so much, they’ll somehow continue bringing the right goods to the table. The same has only turned more and more evident over the recent, and Facebook’s latest move has every bit of potential to make it stronger moving forward.
Facebook is officially poised to expand the user access for a feature, which is understood to enable group organizers in terms of curating live Messenger chat groups. Named as Community Chats, the feature follows the Discord blueprint, as it presents you with a chat layout that is organized by announcements, topics, events, while also offering more avenues to connect with group members beyond just feed posts and comments. Talk about these avenues on a granular level, they span from texting to dedicated support for audio chats that can, by the way, hold up around 30 members. Another interesting aspect of Facebook’s new brainchild is the moderation bit. To ensure a productive function on the stated front, the social media giant has launched an assortment of moderation tools that allow admins to remove messages and block, mute or suspend group members. Apart from the general moderation ideas, Facebook has even launched an “admin assist” feature, which will let admins create a custom criterion for their group, a criterion that will be enforced in a rather automated fashion.
“We’re building Community Chats as a new way to connect with people who share your interests,” said Mark Zuckerberg. “More than 1 billion people use Messenger to communicate with friends, and soon you’ll be able to start Community Chats from Messenger as well as Facebook Groups.”
This is, of course, not the first we have seen Meta trying to find an inspiration from other platforms’ framework. The most notable example that springs to mind is the company’s foray into reels. Nevertheless, given the progressive nature of tech innovation, we can very well expect to see more of these forays moving forward.
