When communications are enabled for a group, group members can view the news for that group that includes member posts, photos and events.

When you sign in to any of the Connect mobile apps, you'll automatically sign in to your newsfeed, which displays the most recently active posts for all the groups you participate in. You can then filter the newsfeed to show posts just from a single group, or navigate to a specific group using the Groups menu.
