Report To Admin Tool
Facebook has begun the roll-out of new spam reporting tools to their Facebook Groups.
Now, when you encounter spam in a group, not only do you have the option to report it as spam, but as an alternative you can report it to the admin.
This helps make sure the admin SEES the post and finds out there is trouble afoot. Usually that results in faster removal of the junk.
The next time the admin visits the group directly, a small box will display at the top of the group, letting the admin know about and view the flagged entries.
At this time this feature is present in some of the groups I am in but not all of them. I’d expect to see it fully rolled out soon though as it seems to be making a rather rapid appearance.
It would be nice to see Facebook take this tool (and the report as spam tool) and extend them a bit so that any post that got more than “X” number of reports was auto-hidden from the group (much the same way spammy comments on pages get hidden) until the admin said they were actually okay.
Do you participate in any Facebook groups? What tool(s) would you love to see them add next?
