Maintaining Group Safety and Reducing Misinformation

When communities are safe, they may thrive as places to connect. These new features will assist administrators in preventing the spread of disinformation and managing group interactions:

  • Adding the option to automatically deny incoming postings that have been flagged as containing incorrect information using Admin Assist. Incoming postings with content marked false by third-party fact-checkers are refused before they are visible in the group, reducing the visibility of disinformation.
  • Extending the functionality of "mute" and renaming it "suspend," so admins and moderators can temporarily prevent group members and participants from publishing, commenting, reacting, engaging in a group chat, and creating or entering a Room in a group.
