Facebook has introduced more comment moderation tools and controls to make it easier for creators to manage conversations on the social network.
Creators will now be able to search comments by keywords, including emojis, commenter names and dates, on their posts and take bulk actions, such as liking or hiding.
These new tools will be available through the comments manager section in Facebook’s Professional Dashboard.
Facebook introduced the feature to mark Safer Internet Day.
“Today is Safer Internet Day, and we are sharing a few updates we’ve made to continue to keep Facebook a safe and supportive platform for you and your community,” stated the firm.
The Meta-owned social media network is also rolling out moderation statistics in their Moderation Assist’s activity log.
“The Moderation Assist proactively moderates new comments on creators’ posts using criteria they set in advance. With this new addition, creators will be able to see statistics about certain things, such as the number of comments that were hidden in the past 30 days.”
Creators can now also view which criteria are met for hiding comments with the inline comment preview and criteria tag in the activity log of Moderation Assist.
Meta says the rollout is part of its efforts to support creators and ensure that they can safely interact with their communities.
Last year, the company expanded access to its live chat agent support to eligible creators and rolled out moderation features within a professional mode.
Meta says it’s focused on providing creators with more comment moderation tools and controls.
