It is no longer news that almost every country affected by the dreaded coronavirus has initiated a lockdown protocol, in order to halt the spread of the virus.
People’s lifestyle have been tremendously altered, as some of the only ways to prevent oneself from contracting the virus, as prescribed by the World Health Organisation, (WHO), include social distancing and regular washing of hands until a vaccine can be developed.
To effectively ensure that, people stay at home and still have a meaningful conversation, with people around the world, social media giant, Facebook has initiated new ways of ensuring group admins, effectively, manage their page and online communities.
The social media giant has initiated new educational contents, with free online workshops, to give community admins integral insight into, how best to foster group engagement.
Also ensuring that, everyone participates in everything going on in the group, which will ultimately lead to less boredom and more connectivity/creativity.
“We’re hosting an online event, to help community leaders manage their communities, during this challenging time.
We designed this event, to help you engage your members, manage conflict and bring members together online”, reports Facebook’s spokesperson.
According to Facebook, the time and date for the workshops, will be held between Tuesday, April 21, 2020 and Thursday, April 23, 2020, in different languages, e.g., English, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, German, Italian, French, Bahasa, etc., according to the time zone of each country.
This move by Facebook has been applauded, by many social enthusiasts, who have seen it as the right way to go, in order to help people combat the growing desire to disobey the lockdown and social distancing protocols, put in place, by various governments.
The number of active users on Facebook is huge, with many groups. Groups help people to stay connected, thus, the need to have group admins properly educated.
The new education sessions, will definitely enhance community management knowledge, as well as, provide more insights, from experts on how best, to manage groups and generate more engagement.
