In his humanitarian manifesto, Mark Zuckerberg announced the new mission for Facebook: giving people the power to build community and bringing the world closer together.
An important part of delivering on the mission is supporting group admins, who are real community leaders on Facebook. Facebook is adding several new features to help these people grow and manage their groups:
With Group Insights they are now able to see real-time metrics around growth, engagement, and membership — such as the number of posts and times that members are most engaged.
Metrics that will be available:
Filtering membership requests
Admitting new members is one of the most time-consuming things ever. So there is a way now for group admins to sort and filter membership requests by 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.
Group admins and moderators can easily schedule created posts for a specific day and time.
Group to group linking
Facebook is beginning to test group-to-group linking, allowing 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 groups for Online Learning
If you are an admin of a Facebook group listed as school or class you may have recently noticed that you can add course units that link to one another.
As group members work their way through the units, their efforts are tracked by a progress bar.
