Is Facebook Spreading Itself Too Thin?

Posted on 11.18.2014

After the success of their standalone Messenger app, Facebook decided to give another feature its own app.

The social network has recently announced the introduction of a standalone Groups app.

When users enter the new app they will see all of their groups laid out in thumbnail form with their most frequently visited groups at the top. Like the timeline on the main Facebook app and website, users can not only view notifications from their groups but also control which notifications they do not want to see.

One of the most interesting features of the app is the Discover tab. Here, users can find and join new groups based on their interests. In the tab groups are displayed with a short summary below their names and number of users.

Interestingly, unlike when Facebook Messenger separated into its own app, Groups will still work on the regular Facebook app so users will not be forced to switch.
