New Delhi [India], June 23 (ANI): Social media giant Facebook has finally set up its new 'Group Insights' feature to enable proper administration of groups administrators (admins) to hold a more stringent check of the content being posted online. Under the new feature, apart from assessing real-time metrics around growth, engagement and membership - such as the number of posts and times that members are can also be engaged. Being the brainchild of CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the few feature was rolled out at the first-ever Facebook Communities Summit (FCS) in Chicago, entirely dedicated to group admins, and leaders who have built safe and supportive communities on Facebook. In lieu of this, the company also introduced its new mission, 'Give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together,' in support of these admins. As part of this mission, the company rolled out a host of other features to assist the admins in understanding and ideating the purpose of these communities. Facebook enabled an option to filter membership requests according to common categories like gender and location, and then accept or decline all at once. Apart from this, 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. Another important feature is the group-to-group linking, which allows group admins to recommend similar or related groups to their members. In these minor yet significant ways, Facebook aims to integrate communities and sub-communities from across the globe. (ANI)
