Guild members can now join and create guilds on BBC News, making it easier to discover and engage with BBC content.
Guilds have been an integral part of BBC News since it launched in 2012.
But the BBC has been gradually building out its digital news services in recent years, including in the UK and US.
Here’s how you can join a Guild in BBC News and more.
How to join a guild You can now access your BBC News guild through BBC News.
Simply follow the BBC News Facebook page and follow the link to join your local BBC News group.
If you’re already a member of a BBC News Guild, you’ll see a welcome screen and a ‘New Guild’ icon on the left side of the BBC news interface.
Guilds are created by BBC News members and the BBC will give you access to a range of content from its Newsroom, which has featured content from the BBC’s most trusted sources, and the World Service, which covers news from around the world.
Your guild is just a button on the BBC website and can be accessed by following the links to your local group.
You’ll need to click the link from the welcome screen or simply follow the ‘Join Guild’ link to start a new guild.
You can then add new members to your guild by clicking the guild icon in the top right hand corner of the News Hub.
You’ll need a BBC account to add members to a guild.
If you’re not already a BBC member, you can create one by visiting the BBC UK website and clicking on the ‘Create Account’ button.
The BBC News mobile app offers access to the BBC network and the app for the BBC app on Apple and Android.
If your BBC app isn’t available on either device, you’re able to create a new app and use that app to access the BBC and the Newsroom.
Once you’ve joined a guild, you won’t be able to leave it, but you can choose to remain as a member or to opt out of joining.
