An update has it that Facebook is bringing out a new update that will simplify models which comprises two groups type which are Public and Private group. From the current updates, Public groups allow anybody to see who runs the group, the group member, along with all the posts shared there, while private groups limit the visibility of members and posts to others outside the group.
This new update will also provide more control for admins and members of a group, giving admins more features and moderation tools while the members will now get the option to see the group’s history and preview its content before accepting or declining an invitation.
“We also heard that people wanted more control over how their groups can be discovered,” Facebook said. “So now admins will be able to clearly choose whether or not the group can be found in search and other places.”
A group that was formerly a secret group will now be private and “hidden while a group that was formerly closed will now be private and visible. The groups that are public will remain public and visible. An Admin of a group can find the new controls in their Group Settings.
