Create a BBM channel
When you create a channel, you can share your perspective and connect with a wider community in BBM about a variety of subjects through posts, comments, and chats. You can update your channel profile picture, name, and status to let people know what's happening.
You can create both public and private channels. For each channel, you control how subscribers can interact with you by specifying chat hours or restricting comments.
- Tap > > > > Next.

- To control who can join your channel, set the Private Channel switch to On. You can't change this option later.
- Tap Save.
