Share Reels in Facebook Groups
Now reels can be created and shared within groups on Facebook. Before, posting a Reel somewhere else on Facebook and then sharing that post with the group were the only ways to share it with them. Now, Meta adds a feature to upload reels directly to the Facebook group for private communities.
Share Facebook Group Events To Your Instagram Story
Now you can share Facebook Group events links to your Instagram story. This feature is accessible to group members and administrators. It helps to expand communities.
Customize Your Facebook Group Profiles
You may now edit the “About Me” part of your Facebook group to share information with the members. Additionally, admins and users now have the option to add a message-openness indicator to their profiles. It signals to other members that you are interested in connecting one-on-one.
Identify Facebook Group Members
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 and performing any task or simply responding to and commenting on posts. In a similar test, Facebook is working on a way for admins to recognize group members who go out of their way to make others feel welcomed.
Updates On Admin Assist Tool
Facebook is adding new tools to regulate and manage material to its living 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. Admins can then review the posts before deleting them, thanks to this.
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 group based on standards established by the admins is included in the daily digest.
Permit Group Members To Publish Content That Facebook Has Flagged
Facebook is testing a feature that permits admins of eligible groups to use their decision when it comes to allowing content flagged by Facebook’s auto-moderation system. Meta employs a variety of standards to specify a group’s eligibility for this feature. The admin of a group must not have previously served as the admin of a group that was removed. It is one of the many factors. Through this feature, an admin for a group of fish tank enthusiasts could permit a flagged comment that called a fish “fatty,” which was not intended to be offensive.
