Facebook Announces New Features for Admins to Grow Their Groups

Facebook has just introduced a handful of new tools for group admins, helping them keep their groups safe and healthy, and to make it easier for them to manage and grow their groups with relevant audiences.


Group admins can now automatically decline incoming posts that have been identified as containing false information. Facebook is also expanding the functionality of “mute” and updating it to “suspend,” so admins and moderators can temporarily suspend group members and participants from posting.

The new Admin Assist feature helps automatically approve or decline member requests. Moreover, admins can efficiently manage their group with new updates to Admin Home, including an overview page on the desktop to quickly review things that need attention.

Lastly, admins can now easily grow their Facebook groups by reaching the relevant people.

  • To help make sharing groups and connecting with a specific community a more seamless experience, we’ve added QR codes which admins can download or copy and paste from the Share menu and share as they like.
  • We’ve also added the option for admins to send invites via email to invite people to join their groups.

More information about the new features is available on the Facebook Community website.
