In accordance with a group's privacy settings
and your membership status, the element "Filter by category"
can be used to filter the groups in the middle.
The category "Mine" will limit the groups in the
overview to those where you are a moderator or a member.
The "Mine" filter category is default,
meaning you need to
deactivate it if you want to see all groups, which you're allowed
to see, in the overview.
"Recommended" shows the groups, where you aren't
already a member, for which you have received a recommendation from the
respective group members. The category "More"
shows the groups which are public or have restricted visibility and don't
already fall into one of the other categories. If more than one category is
chosen at once, the overview will show all of the groups that match at least
one of the selected categories.
