New Facebook Group admin tools come to the world’s largest social network, providing more insights, membership request filtering, scheduled posts, and more..
Facebook just released five new Group admin tools to improve communities on the social platform. These new options include Group Insights, membership request filtering, deleted member clean-up, scheduled posts, as well as group-to-group linking.
New Facebook Group Admin Tools Introduced
Facebook states its new mission is to provide superior support for group admins, who act as real community leaders on the site. Starting today, the company is rolling out five different group admin features. Here is a list of the new Facebook Group admin tools, quoted directly from the announcement:
- Group Insights: group admins have told us consistently that having a better understanding of what’s going on in their groups would help them make decisions on how to best support their members. Now, with Group Insights, they’ll be able to see real-time metrics around growth, engagement and membership — such as the number of posts and times that members are most engaged.
- Membership request filtering: we also hear from admins that admitting new members is one of the most time-consuming things they do. So, we added a way for them to sort and filter membership requests on common categories like gender and location, and then accept or decline all at once.
- Removed member clean-up: to help keep their communities safe from bad actors, group admins can now remove a person and the content they’ve created within the group, including posts, comments and other people added to the group, in one step.
- Scheduled posts: group admins and moderators can create and conveniently schedule posts on a specific day and time.
- Group to group linking: we’re beginning to test group-to-group linking, which allows group admins to recommend similar or related groups to their members. This is just the beginning of ways that we’re helping bring communities and sub-communities closer together.
Facebook also released a video, showing the new group admin options:
Back in May, Facebook Groups introduced a new membership screening tool. Earlier in the year, during the month of March, a Facebook Pages Groups posting option went into testing.
