Many people think that they can take on this challenging world by themselves, never needing a support system. But if one is to look at the countries where people live the longest, the community is what keeps them together. In order to keep up with your academic goals, you may find yourself needing a place to vent, and Facebook groups are the place to do it. Okay, stop thinking, “Who even uses Facebook anymore?” Facebook usage for millennials and Gen Zers is down 5 percent as more young people head to Instagram and TikTok for social media, but there is a great sense of community that can be found in Facebook groups.
