Creators now have the ability to search for comments using keywords, including emojis, commenter names, and dates, on their posts. They can also perform bulk actions like liking or hiding.
Facebook is making it simpler for creators to manage their conversations on the platform by introducing more comment moderation tools and controls, the company announced on Safer Internet Day. The new tools enable creators to search comments by keywords, including emojis, commenter names and dates, and take bulk actions, such as liking or hiding them.
These features will be accessible through the comments manager section in Facebook’s Professional Dashboard. The social media network is also introducing moderation statistics in the Moderation Assist’s Activity Log, enabling creators to see information on the number of comments that were hidden in the past 30 days. Inline comment preview and criteria tags are also available for creators to view which criteria are met for hiding comments.
According to Bobby Marshall, the leader of Facebook’s creator safety programs, these new tools aim to assist creators and their communities to be safe and allow creators to focus on content creation and community building. Meta continues to invest in creator support, with these new features being part of its efforts to provide creators with more comment moderation tools and controls.
