In a diverse world, we try to find the groups where we can feel a sense of belonging--or at least someone they could talk to about interests. Some found it in their circle of friends, families, while others found it online. Facebook Communities are everywhere and it has given people a space to share their thoughts.
There are communities that talk about careers and travel while others talk about more topics we barely come across with. Here are some of them.
What’s Your Ulam Pare
Thinking on what to eat for lunch? What’s Your Ulam Pare will help you with that dilemma. Members of this community share random food photos of what they are having for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or merienda. You can get ideas from them. Plus, there is bonus laughter via the memes members post on the group.
What’s Your Thesis Pare
If you’re cramming for your research papers and thesis, What’s Your Thesis Pare will remind you you are not alone. You can post in your surveys, conduct focus group discussion, or anything thesis or acads-related. They’ll remind you that you’ll soon graduate on time, yes you will.
Curly Girls Philippines
Curly Girls Philippines wants you to embrace every part of your body, even your curly and wavy hair that sometimes won’t stay in place. Here, you’ll find tips on how to care for your or your children’s curly locks. They aim to change the country’s standard on beauty.
ASPIN Lovers Philippines
Some people discriminate against Aspins (Asong Pinoy) because they are not pure breds. But that doesn't mean all of them are unloved. ASPIN Lovers Philippines members proudly show off their Aspin pets and how they care for each one of them. #DogLoversUnite.
Essential Oils Philippines
Are you the one who uses essential oils to improve your health? Well, Essential Oils Philippines can give you recommendations, actual health benefits, even recipes of your oils. While they advocate for these to improve your health, essential oils are not meant to replace medical advice.
Memories of Old Manila
Old photos and memories give us a moment of nostalgia--and there’s lots of nostalgia in the Facebook Community Memories of Old Manila. Check out the Manila that was even before we were born, a community so different from where we are living in.
Skin Care PH
When we take care of our physical well-being, i.e. our skin, we promote self-love. If you don’t know how to start your skincare routine, Skin Care PH would be happy to help. Find the most effective beauty tips and recommendations suitable for your skin type here.
Whatever Facebook Community you want to join in, you’ll learn something new for personal growth, or maybe just find something that clicks with your humor. Just remember to be courteous and respectful with the other members of the community.
