Facebook has been under a lot of heat lately for not taking action against posts that incite violence on its platform, in response to which CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a note that said that the platform will be reviewing its policies.
But that's not the only thing it plans on doing, the company has now shared some recommendations for groups when it comes to discussing race and social issues there.
The recommendations were posted to The Verge, in which the social media giant has suggested that groups should include administrators from affected communities. Moreover, they should make clear rules for members and consider restricting specific topics and enabling the post-approval option. Facebook has also suggested that group leaders should take input from members and accept that their group might grow into a different group.
The decision goes to show the acknowledgment of the growing anti-racist posts and discussions on the social media platform. This comes after the tensions in groups increase after the killing of George Floyd and the ongoing protests over it. Facebook group managers want the company to be more responsive to rising problems and focus less on the sidelines.
