Facebook announces community pages

Bookmark and Share

by Darren Allan

Facebook has announced a new feature ahead of the site’s annual F8 conference which is happening tomorrow in San Francisco.

The social networking giant has unveiled community pages, spilling the beans about them on the company blog.

These are a step on from organisation and celebrity fan pages, and a broader category which brings together like-minded people who have similar interests.

So, for example, there’ll be a cooking community page, for all the budding chef Facebookers out there.

They’ll be able to browse around the community to pick up information such as cooking tips, recipes, and where to buy those big puffy white hats.

Community pages will be set up on many varied topics. To begin with, they’ll be bare bones affairs with basic information pulled over from Wikipedia.

The idea is that community members will get on board and contribute their own nouse. A bit like Wikipedia, in fact.

This project isn’t live just yet, but will be rolled out over the next few days, so expect to see it before the weekend.

  1. So if Facebook is slowly becoming the internet, why don’t people just use the internet. I’ve been using the entire web since 1996 and nobody knows anything about me. Authorities and ISPs might. But people I know and the guy next door don’t.
