Discord servers allow people to gather in online communities where they can chat, play games and share music. Discord can either be public or private: public servers are open to anyone while private ones require you to be invited by a moderator.

Discord server owners frequently post invite links on social media or forums so that potential members can join their community and form friendships with those who share similar interests. This makes joining their Discord server easier!

How to find a Discord server?

Discord is an audio, video and text chat platform that connects people who share similar interests into servers. There are millions of Discord servers spanning across everything from movies and gaming to sports - there is even an entire directory dedicated to them! When looking for one you may also consider following social media influencers in your niche as an additional resource; or check the Disboard "Discord Server Reviews" feature to gain more of an idea what the experience will be before joining!

If you want to find a Discord server that fits your interests, try browsing social media communities or searching Twitter or Reddit hashtags or subreddits for them. Also take note that Discord's Discover page features public servers verified by moderators - once you find one you like simply click "Join Server" button to join it!

Types of Discord servers

Discord servers feature channels that enable members to communicate among themselves. This may involve text or voice communications and can include media such as images, videos, music files or Internet links. Furthermore, Discord servers often include forums and announcement channels as well.

Many servers offer specific topics or games with large communities of people that share similar interests, for example a server for one specific video game may provide multiple channels for discussing multiplayer tactics; other servers offer general content across an array of topics.

Certain servers are more organized than others and use categories to group channels for easier management. One of Discord's hallmark features is its category capability - one which stands out against similar platforms such as Slack or Reddit. Plus, category settings can even be linked directly with roles so server owners can more efficiently oversee channel permissions.

How to join a Discord server

Discord servers are online communities for text and voice chatting. Most are public, allowing anyone to join, while some private ones require an invite link in order to join. You can search the Discover homepage list or use the search bar to join.

To use Discord's Discover feature, click on the green compass icon and select "Explore Public Servers." From there, you can search or browse public servers categorized by category; or narrow your search further by scrolling through game listings or entering keywords into a keyword field.

If you have an invite link for a Discord server, enter it into the prompt that appears and click Join Server to join it. Alternatively, you can enter its invite URL directly into either Discord's web app or desktop app and join that way.


Discord is an increasingly popular communication platform among video game enthusiasts and college students alike, providing voice and text chat functionality on private servers for voice chat as well as text. College students have taken to using Discord for peer support in online learning environments when instructors are unavailable.

Discord has the ability to drive engagement, yet there may be privacy concerns with its use. Users can track their activity on Discord including which games they're playing and servers they belong to - although users have the option of disabling this feature if desired.

Discord servers that generate public links for attachments pose an exposure risk, since anyone with the link can reshare it. Furthermore, Discord servers without robust malware scanning can serve as free file hosting for threat actors; enterprises can avoid this danger by leveraging Netskope's cloud security solution to detect threats and enforce DLP policies.
