Chat in Facebook Groups allows you and your members to more easily have real-time conversations.
We know that you're always looking for new ways to communicate with your group. As workarounds, you sometimes create conversations or initiate chats via other platforms which can be difficult to manage.
Last week, we introduced a new feature that makes it easier for Facebook Group members and admins to start real-time chats with each other. Chats for Facebook Groups are viewable and able by anyone in the group.
Both admins and group members can create a chat. However, group admins have the ability to limit chat creations to the admins of the group only.
ipac To get started: Tap the Chats tab in your group Tap the "Start a Group Chat" button at the bottom of your screen In this section of your group, you will find all the group chat thre listed and can even start your own thread. You can then continue chatting in Messenger The person who creates the chat becomes the chat owner and gets to name and choose an image for their chat.
Anyone can add people from the group, but group members can leave a chat at any time and the chat creator can remove people.
