At Facebook, mere "sharing" is getting old. Finding deeper meaning in online communities is the next big thing.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg is no longer satisfied with just connecting the world so that people can pass around baby pictures and live video - or fake news and hate symbols.
So the Facebook founder wants to bring more meaning to its nearly 2 billion users by shepherding them into online groups that bring together people with common passions, problems and ambitions. Much like the creation of Facebook itself - arguably the largest social-engineering project in history - that shift could have broad and unanticipated consequences. - AP
