Facebook tests Suggested Groups module on mobile

suggestedgroupsWithin a group’s mobile timeline, Facebook is testing a new module to get users to join and engage with more groups.

Some users are seeing a box for Suggested Groups, which prompts users to join groups that their friends are in. The module includes links to three groups, as well as a plus box to add in one touch. It also shows how many of their friends are members of these groups.

Similar modules have been in News Feed for a while, asking users to like pages their friends have liked.

On desktop, the sidebar for groups includes a prompt to like other groups that their friends have joined. The desktop user timeline also has a section where friends can see what public groups a friend has joined.
