Imagine being in a room where every stranger feels like your friend. Random faces framed in tiny circles, sharing your favorite memes, music, and the in-between randomness of life. Facebook has helped redefine the conventional concept of communities, and has allowed individuals to find common roots through the rise of Facebook groups about various-almost-weird anythings that one can easily be a part of.
Below, we’ve created a list of some of the many, many, MAAAAANY online communities that you can join on Facebook:
music recs without context
While you can easily post your favorite song or playlist on your Instagram story, posting it on this group will connect you with strangers who share the same music palate as yours. Members of the group generously share their favorite songs, from nostalgic Fleetwood Mac tracks to the sunshine tunes of rising OPM bands like Any Name’s Okay.
In this group, there is no such thing as bad music taste. Everyone’s free to post about their music recommendations, and you don’t need to explain why you shared it. And that’s fine.
Your music’s safe with us.
subtle asian traits
Asians just have their own cultural language, you know? With over 1.6M members, this group talks about everything Asian. Need memes about Asian parents who high-key pressure you to excel in everything especially mathematics, or maybe, funny posts about milk tea and anime obsessions? Subtle asian traits is a group that talks about common Asian cultures and characteristics that aren’t too subtle, but definitely, relatable enough for other Asians (and sometimes, non-Asians) all over the Facebook community.
We Pretend It's 2007-2012 Internet
Somehow, this group is stuck in the days of Party Rock Anthem, Pet Society, and bejeweled Motorola flip phones, and all you need to do is follow one simple rule: Post memes and popular trends from those years, and generally act as if it is that era.
The group also takes you back to your awkward, pre-pubescent days of young and wholesome Internet discovery.
Who’s your pupper, senpai?
Anyone and everyone should join this group because who doesn’t like dogs? The group’s all about giving boops to adorable dogs and sharing funny pupper videos that serve as mood lifters for the community of dog lovers.
There’s a ton of Facebook groups for your different interests and hobbies, and now, belonging to one takes one click (and sometimes, answering a few questions to become an official member). Take your most random interests, give it a search and who knows? A Facebook group might be waiting for you to join their growing community.
