Moderation assist facebook is leveling up content moderation for creators with a new feature called Admin Assist. Using the tool, page admins can set criteria for comments that will automatically be hidden. This can save a lot of time in the long run as it cuts down on the amount of manual effort needed to review comments.
Facebook says that it uses an algorithm to rank the severity of incoming posts so they can be dealt with quickly. This is based on how widely shared the post is and whether it includes content that could cause real-world harm. It ranks more serious posts higher than less severe ones like spam, for example.

Admin Assist also lets page admins add their own criteria for incoming posts. These can include a number of different factors including content types, keywords and more. This is a great way to limit promotional content (like MLM links) in the group without needing to manually review each and every post that comes in.
There is also a new option that can hide posts containing specific keywords. This is useful if you have a list of terms or emojis that you want to exclude from your page. However, it’s important to note that this is separate from the Keyword Moderation tool and there are some potential issues with using both at the same time.
Finally, there is a new Criteria that will automatically decline any post that includes a link. This is another great way to cut down on the amount of promotional content in your group and it can help with reducing spam and other kinds of content that are not relevant to your community.
