Just days after the announcement made by the Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg on the change of name from Facebook Inc to Meta, today there comes a big announcement for a Facebook group tool that will make great strides for the Facebook group management. This new feature that Facebook  introduced today a new set of tools aimed at helping Facebook Group administrators get a better handle on their online communities and, potentially, help keep conversations from going off the rails

Among the more interesting new tools is a machine-learning-powered feature that alerts admins to potentially unhealthy conversations taking place in their group. Another lets the admin slow down the pace of a heated conversation, by limiting how often group members can post.

New Facebook Groups tools coming for admins and creators is therefore a tool that you ought to look for and shall allow you to customize the look and feel of groups template, add sub-groups and community chats, and support admins and the entire group through paid sub-groups, community fundraisers, and more. We'll keep building more tools to support admins.

Facebook Groups are today a significant reason why people continue to use the social network. Today, there are “tens of millions” of groups, that are managed by over 70 million active admins and moderators worldwide, Facebook says. The company for years has been working to roll out better tools for these group owners, who often get overwhelmed by the administrative responsibilities that come with running an online community at scale. As a result, many admins give up the job and leave groups to run somewhat unmanaged — thus allowing them to turn into breeding grounds for misinformation, spam and abuse.

Mark CEO Facebook

In an exclusive post by Mark Zuckerberg today, he outlined three key things that have made Facebook to undertake the recent changes;

  1. We're launching a promotional link for creators for their Subscriptions offering. When people subscribe using this link, creators will keep all the money they earn (minus taxes).  
  2. Creators will have more ownership of their audience -- we're giving the ability for them to download the email addresses of all of their new subscribers.
  3. We’re launching a bonus program that pays creators for each new subscriber they get as part of our $1 billion creator investment announced this summer. More to come.
* The email will not be published on the website.
