Group were introduced in in May of 2007, as of a way of letting Habbos associate with each other and show their love for various things. The first group ever created is called The Stalwart Defenders of Pie, and is owned by xXodekXx. Groups used to be able to have their own page, room, forum and badge, but now only have a page, a room, and a badge. The old group forums were removed shortly after the Great Habbo Mute in mid 2012.
Habbo Club membership is required to buy a group for your habbo room. If you have a membership you can navigate to the shop -> Groups -> Create Your Group (HC Required). A group cost 10 Credits to make and u need to have a personal room where the group will be based in.
At the end of 2011, Habbo redesigned the whole group system. Now, any new groups created must have a group homeroom. Groups can also be used to control rights in a room and allow more than one person to give/take away room rights from a user. The new groups also do not have pages and the colours set as the group's colours can be used to create customized furniture. Apart from this, the newer groups are very similar to the old groups, with group administrators being able to add and remove people from various groups. Group discussion forums also remained unaffected by the change until the Great Habbo Mute of 2012, when they were taken away and made invisible on current group pages.
Groups can be used for a variety of things, including designating personnel of a military, police force, or other organized group, promoting awareness for a cause such as LBGT, or just to have a badge for the sake of having a badge. A neat function of group badges is that the wearer can get into rooms designed as the homeroom for that badge if the room is locked or otherwise inaccessible. Habbo militaries use group badges to designate the personnel of that military. Entrance to the badge is governed by badge mods, who have the right to deny or admit someone onto the badge, thus giving that person the ability to wear that badge and gain access to the HQ. Other groups are very similar in that regard. They use it to mark winners of mazes, people who complete quests, as well as habbos who are part of special groups, such as the Habbo Council.
You could have added the following to your groups: Widgets, Stickers, and Notes. It was created under the same system as the "Home Page".
The info widget shows the group name, the creation, the date, badge, description, and its tags. It includes a guestbook to which users can leave messages. It can be locked so that members can only post on the guestbook. A widget called members lists all the members of the group. Seeing a red heart next to a player's name means that the player added the badge as a favorite. Silver stars symbolize adminship of a player.
A player must have Admin rights to place stickers if he or she isn't the owner. They are placed on the group's page, and they are earned by joining an official group made by Habbo for campaigns.
Within groups was a forum in which members could participate in a discussion.
A group badge is simply a badge symbolizing a group. The group owner must edit it to his/her desire until the icon has been made.
