A Blog Community brings participating FC2 Blog Users even closer, with a community you can interact with other users through the blog administration page. Share your hobbies, etc. and talk with your FC2 Blog friends, discuss certain topics and exchange opinions, make each other laugh and make each other think.

Anyone can see communities that are set to public, but only logged in FC2 Blog users can create topics or leave comments. You can make groups with other users you meet through blog entries because your set information such as because your blog link, handle name, etc. will be passed on.

Set up topics with varying themes within the community and make your own comments and read about what the other members think or feel.
Anyone can set up their own community and become an administrator, so why not try and make your own?.

Search for a Community to Join

Go to Community on the control panel and search for a community that you would like to join.
