This week, the Goal is performing your Community Accelerator Program and the company took advantage of the momentum to announce new features for Facebook with a focus on groups. The novelties are aimed at “people connecting around shared interests” and still do not have a set date to be released.
One of the functions that the social network is testing is the customization of the section “About me” to highlight information that a user wants to share with their community. This, according to the company, will help admins and members get to know more about other people and create content with greater common interest.
In addition, users will also be able to add an indicator to let other group members know if they are open to messages (or not). For Meta, this will help like-minded people know who is willing to connect for the same interests.
Another novelty is the new way for admins to highlight the most active members of a group. According to the company, they will be able to earn points by taking an active role with responsibilities or by receiving reactions and comments on their posts.
For example, gaming communities can identify helpful tips that other members share about new features, games, and characters. By accumulating points, top members will earn badges to display on their Group profiles, making it easier for admins to select these people for roles.
There is also the Admin Assistant, a feature that helps group managers efficiently moderate. According to the Meta, the “adms” will be able to take actions based on specific criteria that they define.
This is the case, for example, with fake news. Soon, admins will be able to automatically move posts to the pending list, as long as they are classified as fake news by news agencies. fact-checking. This, according to the company, aims to ensure that the content in the groups is more reliable.
Meta also announced an extension of the feature Flagged by Facebook for the groups. When released, the feature will give some admins the ability to allow the use of additional context to flag sensitive content that should be removed, such as bullying and harassment.
Through this test, an administrator of a group of fish tank enthusiasts, for example, could release a flagged comment that called a fish “fat” with no intention of being offensive. Still, we require groups to follow our policies and we will remove infringing content that is reported to us.
Finally, who will also show up in the groups are the reels, the short videos that allow users to express themselves creatively. According to the company, admins and members of Groups can add creative elements to videos such as audio, text and filters on videos before sharing them.
