Discord is the leading platform for bringing together as a community. You can easily manage a group on Discord thanks to its many features.
Anyone with a Discord account can create a Discord server, join people, create different roles, and assign members roles.
Besides, Discord allows the creation of multiple servers, meaning you can add different friends to different servers.
The easiest way to group members in Discord is by using Discord servers. If it’s a smaller number of people, like ten, you can create a Discord group instead of a server. Open Discord, click on “Friends”, tap the “Direct Messages” option, add friends, and click the “Create Group DM” option. For a server, click the plus symbol and tap the “Create Server” option. Add members to the server, name it, and finalize creating the server and adding its details.
