The website's members have been able to send private messages and create secret events for some time, but now the social media network is introducing private Facebook Groups.

Within the global online community, users with similar interests can establish and enlist in secret societies in the form of virtual spaces, permitting communication via group chat, messaging, wall posts, photos, events and all of the standard Facebook Group applications. Private Facebook Groups will be well-received by members with controversial interests, though hopefully these closed communities won't become scenes for suspicious behavior.
