Talking specifically about the roles and responsibilities of Facebook group admin, it is really very imperative as it is a social media platform and one careless action may lead to various adversities.
Roles And Responsibilities of Facebook’s Group Admin
The group admin has to be very careful regarding the activities that are going on in its group and if founds a member violating the rules, it should take the action immediately.
Let’s see what all roles and responsibilities admins possess and to carry out which are as follows –
Removal And Addition of the Admins And Moderators
When the group is created, the person who creates or frames the group is actually known as ‘admin’. The admin has the right that it can make some other admins as well and the same right is been enjoyed by the other newly created admins. There are also some moderators that get assigned by the Admins. But you have to be clear with the concept that the moderators can never assign other Admins as well as other moderators. If you want to make someone admin or moderator, all you need to do is tap on the three-dot icon which is situated next to all the members of the group and opt for the admin or moderator. The same procedure needs to be followed when one has to remove the admin or moderator.
Manage the settings of the group
Admin relishes the privileges and possesses an authority to do various types of group settings like that of altering the group name, privacy settings, the cover photo etc. But moderators are not authorized for doing such settings.
Pending Member Questions
If you have enabled the membership approval, then the admins could frame certain questions that are primarily pending member questions. These questions actually help the admins so as to make a correct choice so as to approve or deny the users who have put on the request for joining the group.
Blocking Or Removing People
This right is been enjoyed only by the admins or the moderators. If they find that a member of their group is doing certain inappropriate activity in the group or found violating the rules, then an admin could straight away remove the member or could block him. If some other member of the group is facing some problem with the other member who is doing annoying things then he has to inform the group admin, who can take action and could remove or block the member at fault.
Directly Delete Posts As Well As Comments
We know that the user who has posted something could anytime delete the post or comments. But the group admins and the moderators if they feel that the post or comment is against the rules of the group, they can straight away delete the post without intimating the responsible person or anyone.
