Facebook Group New Tools & Features to offer better control on Communities
Launched a few days ago, the new post control options for Facebook Groups will make the communication easier and safer for all the members by giving the admins & moderators liberty to decide what kind of posts should be shared in their groups.
As screenshots shared by social media expert Matt Navarra, Group admins can now access the simple toggle to switch on or off the various options to manage what type of posts they want to allow in their groups.
The new post control options will be displayed as shortcuts at the bottom of the composer panel in their group to provide more control over the post types group members can share, like, comment and interact with. These options will help Group admins and moderators to manage interactions better.
Using these tools, Group admins and moderators can limit how often specific group members can comment and how often comments can be made on specific posts that admins select.
Also, Facebook is working on another feature named conflict alerts that will notify the Group admins if there may be any contentious or unhealthy conversations taking place in their group to take action accordingly.
In the future, the Group admins and moderators will tag group rules in comments and posts. Not only admins and moderators but also members will be able to tag specific rules when they report posts and comments to admins to make it easier for admins to take action.
