There is now a simple and intuitive way to access all the tools, settings, and features that administrators need to manage Facebook groups.
Admin Home is a new one-stop destination for admins where they can:
- See what needs attention across posts, members, and reported comments.
- Find key tools through a clearer, reorganized layout that shows what’s available under each category.
- Access new features that are rolled out in the future.
Admin Assist is a new tool that can help ease conversations and potential conflicts.
Allows administrators to set standards to automatically review posts and comments.
Using these new settings, admins can:
- Restrict group participation based on several options, such as how long a user has had a Facebook account or how long they have been a member of the group.
- Reduce promotional content by declining posts and comments with specific links, with the ability to provide feedback for the author telling them why the content was declined.
- Use suggested criteria from Facebook to help defend the group against spam, maintain positive discussions and resolve conflicts within the group.
Facebook is introducing a new member summary feature that allows administrators to view a comprehensive summary of the activities of each member in the group.
The member summary can include information such as the number of times a member posted and commented, or the time when a post was deleted or muted in the group.
A new tool will allow administrators to resolve conflicts between them.
Administrators of Facebook groups can now appeal against content posted by them or other administrators or content approved by members, as well as content from members.
Facebook will review the appeal to ensure that the correct decision is made.
Tag Group Rules
Group administrators and moderators can now mark group rules in comments and posts to easily share and enforce rules.
Members can also mark specific group rules when reporting posts and comments to the administrator.
