Facebook launched its new guideline for group admin related to group management systems. After the Black Live Matters protest, each community discussed the issue and expressed opinions. But some people blatantly publish derogatory comments and publish hateful content, which considered as a political matter by the head of the group. For that reason, they deleted several posts and ended up banning or removing that person from the group.
Guidelines based on how to navigate group members on any social issue is recent delivery to the admins. Even Facebook already addresses this political publication followed by any group, which will be prohibited, and now, they recommend that group leaders make a separate list of topics and rules, which not accepted in the group as well as follow the instruction.
In that report, they also mentioned, discussions related to a political candidate, legislation, or any specific campaign will need to follow the guidelines strictly. Along with this, it also explains admins to firstly research the social issues and think about how it would affect the group, creating fresh opportunities for diverse and new members.
Following tips are provided by Facebook to increase the better interaction between the admin and its member team:
- Make an Announcement of change in rules and regulations of the group, pin it on the top.
- Insert the post-approval feature to filter out posts according to guidelines.
- With sensitive topics, turn off the comment option.
- Set the penalty for breaking the rules by moderators, discuss ahead with your team.
- Host a live discussion session with members via Facebook live or with messenger room feature.
Things have changed from time to time, and eventually, the difference would appear as more evident than before. In social groups, everyone has the right to express what it feels. But, each Facebook group is disparate and has distinct sets of rules. Admins select the appropriate set of rules so that they can evolve their community using Facebook’s new guidelines.
