Meta Rolls Out 6 Updates To Facebook Groups

Meta announces six updates to Facebook Groups that allow users to share more types of content and admins to manage their community efficiently.

The six new tools and features available in Facebook Groups include:

  1. Reels in Facebook groups
  2. Share Facebook group events to Instagram stories
  3. Customize Facebook group profiles
  4. Get to know the members of the Facebook group community
  5. Admin Assist updates
  6. Allow group members to post content that has been flagged by Facebook

1. Reels in Facebook groups

Facebook users can now create and share Reels exclusively within Groups.

Previously, to share a reel to a Facebook group, you had to first post it elsewhere on Facebook and then share that post with the group.

You can now upload a Reel file directly to the group, which is ideal for private communities.

2. Share the Facebook event on Instagram

You can now share Facebook Group event links to your Instagram story.

This feature is available to group members and administrators and can be an effective way to grow communities.

3. Customize Facebook Group Profiles

You can now customize the About Me section of your Facebook group to highlight any information with the community.

Additionally, there is now an option for admins and members to add an indicator to their profile that they are open to messaging. This signals to other members that you are interested in one-on-one communication.

4. Get to know the Facebook group community members

Facebook is testing a new way for admins to highlight group members who are the main contributors. Members can contribute by taking an active role with a range of responsibilities in the community or by receiving feedback and comments on posts.

In a similar test, Facebook is working on a way for admins to identify which group members do their best to make others feel welcome.

5. Updates to help the administrator

Facebook is updating its existing Admin Assist tool with more ways to moderate and take action on content.

Group admins now have the option to move posts containing information labeled as false by third-party fact-checkers to suspended posts. This allows administrators to review posts before deleting them.

Facebook will help group admins understand how Admin Assist is helping them manage their community with a new daily digest. The Daily Digest contains a summary of actions taken by Admin Assist in the community based on criteria set by administrators.

6. Allow Group Members to Post Content “Facebook Flagged”

Facebook is testing an option that allows admins of eligible groups to use their own judgment when it comes to allowing content flagged by Facebook’s automatic moderation system.

Using this feature, an administrator of an aquarium enthusiast’s group could allow a comment tagged “fat” fish, which was not intended to be offensive.

Meta uses a variety of criteria to determine group eligibility for this feature, including that an admin should not be the admin of a previously removed group.
