Facebook changes – June 2021
Like all the other social networks, Facebook’s joining in with the Olympic excitement. There’s now a dedicated games hub, containing articles, results and posts by your friends about the Olympics – arguably one of the most useful features out of all the social networks for those following the action.
Facebook Messenger now has an emoji search bar, allowing you to find the perfect emoji even quicker. That’s not all – much like the iOS keyboard, Messenger now has a ‘recent reactions’ section for emojis, letting you select your more frequently used emojis more easily.
In response to the horrendous racist response towards the England football team after the England v Italy final of the Euros, Facebook has released a new overview, explaining what they’re doing to combat racism across its platforms. It’s updated its protocols to capture emoji use as an abuse element, and has reiterated its stance on hate speech.
Groups are continuing to get more support as Facebook rolls out more functionality for the feature. Admins are now able to designate Group Experts, giving those experts the chance to better showcase their knowledge, and there have been updates to post types, too – if you post a question in a group, members will receive a notification asking them to come along and answer it. You can read more here.
