New Delhi, March 18, 2021: The social media platform Facebook has taken a new decision. Facebook’s decision is very important for people sending messages, photos, and videos to groups. In fact, Facebook has created new rules against those sending harmful content to groups. Facebook will now close groups that break the set rules associated with the group platform. The company will also take action against the members of the group who have been repeatedly breaking the rules of the company.

Facebook also stated in a blog post that it would stop offering potentially harmful groups to people. The company also said that members of groups who violate the rules will only be given access to limited features on Facebook. Facebook further stated, “We know that we have a huge responsibility when we recommit our content to people.”

Actions to be taken against rule-breakers

Facebook had earlier said in its statement that it will ban the people posting guideline violating content in any group for a limited time. Its time limit can be anywhere between 7 to 30 days. With this, such users will not be able to add new members to the group and create new groups on Facebook.

On the other hand, if there are many members in a group who are repeatedly posting such content, then Facebook will temporarily take approval from moderators and administrators for all posts. The content of such groups will not be shown to viewers until it is approved. If the group administrator approves the offensive post, then the entire group may be banned.
