Community chats are chats created specifically for Facebook groups. Note that they are not available to all groups (example: commerce groups) or people at this time.
You can turn notifications off for all of your Facebook group’s community chats, or you can choose specific activity you want to receive notifications for. You can also manage notification settings for a single community chat in your Facebook group.
To mute and remove one of your Facebook groups from appearing on Messenger entirely, learn how to hide community chats on Messenger.
