Facebook makes it easier to control large Messenger groups

Admin Privileges will also be rolling out to Facebook Workplace Chat, the firm's slack competitor. "Since 2.5 million new groups were created on Messenger every day past year, we're excited to start rolling out new, widely requested Messenger features that make your group chat experience more robust and seamless", Drew Moxon, Product Manager, Messenger, wrote in a blog post on Wednesday. Today, the social networking giant has pushed a new update to the Messenger application, which added two new features to the Messenger Groups. "Admins also have the ability to remove members if needed, and promote or demote any other person in the group chat as an admin".

The first of the tools is aimed at group admins, allowing them to essentially vet new members of group chats before they can join in. "You'll have the option to decide if you'd like admin approval for approving new members, but this preference is off by default in your group chat settings", says Moxon. It is a good addition to group chat, and even better for large group chats, especially with new people you may not have previously had contact or connected with. You need to approve new members from your side to let them start catching up with other members of your group. And if the admin privileges are turned off, users will be automatically added to the group by just tapping the joinable link. All members of a group chat can create a custom invite link and share it with someone of they would like to join the group/conversation.

Drew Moxon, the Messenger Product Manager added that it is optional for Messenger groups and they may not opt for it if they do not need that level of control for managing that group. The second feature is the joinable group links with which a user can easily join a group using a link.
