In September, code was discovered hidden in the Messenger app that referenced a feature by the same name, which also offered some explanation of how Rooms worked.
At the time, text found in the code stated that “rooms are for public conversations about topics and interests.
Our senior forum based sections allow you to join in the discussions or even start your own.
The limited launch is meant to serve as a test to see if Facebook’s messaging platform could encourage broader, more public conversations focused on specific topics.There were already hints that Facebook was planning to trial Rooms on Messenger in the near future.You have a list of your friends on your profile page and can invite others to be friends with you.Do please email me at [email protected] if you would like to know more or have any problems joining the site.Each Room has a link that can be shared so anyone on Messenger can join the conversation.” Users could also create their own Rooms via the Messenger app, invite members, approve new members, set a nickname for themselves, configure notifications and more.
Facebook said then Rooms was a small test, but offered no further comment.
There are also a plethora of message boards if you don't prefer real-time chatting.
They allow you to find topics that interest you, then post your thoughts on them and read what other teens have to say.
It may take a few seconds for the room to appear, but it shouldn't take more than a minute.
You can fill out a profile, but just put things that can't identify you outside the site. This site has many different rooms you can join in such as Singles, Flirt, Gay Les Bi, Advice, Party, Hottub, Zone, Christian, Seniors2008, Lounge, Military, Café, Dorm, Hangout, Lobby, Palace, and Park.
