Facebook Groups To Join, Depending On Your Interests and Sense Of Humor
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.

these sheets that exactly remind me of how I gushed in between my pillow and space you filled in the longing of my burned sorrow put smile to my sober face just like how a three year old receive her lollipop
i searched you everywhere and here you are laying down beside me in my imagination the walls that our screens built a boundary and an obvious message that says i can never have you because you wear clerical shirt and obviously you loved someone else before me
oh god, do I really want this forbidden love? that only exist in my imagination? that only exist through my words? would you, meine liebling, notice me and my art one second? because I am dying to say I love you.
A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender
Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.
Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.
It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.
Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
Dear me in six years, I wonder how life will treat you when you’re already 26 years old. Will you be financially stable? Will you be working in an advertising agency while pursuing everything about the arts? Will you be doing freelancing and living in a condo by then? I don’t know since things are very uncertain. I hope by the time you graduate from college and face the real meaning of the world, you’ll know what the real purpose of doing and living in the art will be.
I know it’s been so tough ever since you turned 20 but that’s how life works, I guess. There will be a lot of hopes and trials, breakdowns, and breakthroughs but I have high hopes of you becoming the better version of yourself. You always do, though. You were never a quitter. Making decisions is getting harder and harder as you grow but I hope it doesn’t make you stop doing what you really love to do. You will face different people with different perspectives. You will feel like a stranger once again, it’s like you were back in your freshmen year. It’s going to be tougher than you’ve expected but you can do it. I believe you can.
Most of the time, people's perception of us as a strong person makes us feel that we are not entitled to be vulnerable because they might be disappointed for seeing our weak spots. And so when we are hurting, we are often scared of extreme emotions and so bury our feelings. We deny them, trying to avoid the pain we feel.
But by doing that, we are just allowing it to come back to us and haunt us. And when it comes back, it might be stronger and it will be harder for us to get over it than when we faced them first. I realized it just now that facing those emotions will scare them until they're gone. The saying 'Let it hurt until it hurts no more' goes true. Admitting your pain to yourself doesn't make you weak. It only proves that you are strong enough to acknowledge such extreme emotions without avoiding them. We are humans and it's okay if we hurt sometimes.
