Connection & Controversy
Six years after it rocked the world with friend requests and profile pics, Facebook launched what's become one of its most revolutionary and iconic features: Facebook groups. But what inspired the idea of exclusive or interest-based subgroups?
In his 2017 manifesto, Zuckerberg expanded on Facebook's goal to "develop the social infrastructure to give people the power to build a global community that works for all of us."
He wanted Facebook users to have the autonomy to create communities that were civically-engaged, supportive, and inclusive. It was also a means to shift from friend-centric interactions to user experiences with an axiom of authentic communication in group discussions.
While we can't speak to how supportive or deep Facebook groups are or aren't, Zuckerberg's success with the initiative speaks for itself.
According to SellCoursesOnline, between 2016 and 2020, a Facebook report found that "the number of active members in Facebook Groups almost doubled from 1 billion to 1.8 billion users." As of 2022, that accounts for approximately 60% percent of the platform's 2.93 billion users.
