No More “Chats” In Facebook Groups-
Notice anything on Friday in your Facebook Groups? A little feature recently introduced within Groups that let members start chats with each other by clicking on “Start Chat” tab has been disabled.

“While Facebook acknowledges that “it’s really valuable to communities on Facebook to be able to communicate in real-time,” its “current product infrastructure doesn’t support Chats in Groups directly in the Facebook app,” and “can no longer support the feature.” – George Carey-Simos, writing for WERSM
