Six changes to Facebook Groups have been announced by Meta, enabling administrators to effectively manage their communities and enabling users to post new forms of content.
Facebook Groups now provide six new tools and capabilities, including the following:
- Share reels in Facebook Groups
- Add Instagram Stories events from Facebook Groups.
- Make Facebook Group profiles your own
- Recognize participants in Facebook Groups
- The Admin Assist tool has been updated.
- Permit group members to publish content that Facebook has flagged
Share Reels in Facebook groups:
Users of Facebook may now solely share and create Reels within groups.
Before, posting a Reel somewhere else on Facebook & then sharing that post with the group were the only ways to share it with them.
For private communities, the ability to upload a Reel directly to the group has been added.
On Instagram, you can share the Facebook Event!
Facebook Group events now you can share on your Instagram story.
This accessibility to group members and administrators might help communities expand.
Create Individual Facebook Group Profiles
You may now edit the “About Me” part of your Facebook group to share any information with the members.
Additionally, admins and users now have the option to add a message-openness indicator to their profiles. It lets other members know that you’re eager to make personal connections.
Identify members of the Facebook group community!
Facebook is piloting a new method for group managers to recognize the top contributors. Members can participate by taking on an active position in the community & carrying out a certain set of duties or simply responding to and commenting on posts.
Facebook is developing a method for admins to recognize group members who go above and beyond to help others feel welcome in a similar test.
Admin Assist Updates
Facebook is adding new tools to regulate and manage material to its existing Admin Assist tool.
The option to automatically transfer posts with material deemed erroneous by outside fact-checkers to awaiting postings is now available to group administrators. It enables administrators to examine posts before deleting them.
With a new daily feed, Facebook will make it easier for group administrators to understand how Admin Assist helps them manage their community. A list of the actions Admin Assist has done in a community based on standards established by the admins is included in the daily digest.
Permit Group Members to Post “Flagged By Facebook” Content
Facebook has a testing feature. It gives group admins the discretion to accept or reject information that has been reported by the social network’s auto-moderation system.
An admin for a group of fish tank aficionados may use this tool to approve a flagged comment that incorrectly referred to a fish as “fatty,” even though it was not meant to be hurtful.
The admin of a group must not have previously served as the admin of a group that was removed as one of the many factors used by Meta to determine a group’s eligibility for this feature.
