Meta, formerly known as Facebook, has rolled out a new feature called Messenger Communities. This feature allows users with similar interests to connect and chat within dedicated spaces on Messenger, even if they are not part of the same Facebook Group.

Messenger Communities offer a space for meaningful conversations, bridging the gap between real-time chats and Facebook Groups. Whether you’re passionate about hobbies, causes, or simply want to connect with like-minded individuals, Communities on Messenger provide a welcoming environment.

What Are Messenger Communities?

Messenger Communities are similar to WhatsApp Communities and provide a platform for users to engage in conversations based on shared interests. Up to 5,000 people can join a community using invites. Organizations, schools, and individuals can use Communities to connect with friends who share similar interests.
