Is your Facebook group getting big and you don’t have time to moderate the group discussions yourself? It is a great opportunity to add a moderator to the Facebook group.

If you prefer a video tutorial on the process of adding a moderator to a Facebook Group, scroll down to the bottom of the article.

Without further ado, let’s dive in.

What can a Facebook group moderator do?

As the name suggests, the Facebook group moderator’s primary role is to moderate the discussion in the Facebook groups.

So here is what a Facebook group moderator can do:

  • Approve and deny Facebook group posts
  • Remove group posts if they think it is inappropriate
  • Delete comments from FB group posts
  • Remove and block people from Facebook groups
  • Pin and unpin Facebook group posts
  • Approve and deny membership requests.

Let’s see what a Facebook group moderator can’t do compared to a Facebook group admin who has access to everything.

Facebook group admin vs moderator

A Facebook group admin can also do the tasks we have collected above. Besides that, a Facebook group admin can, and a Facebook group moderator can’t do the following:

  • A Facebook group moderator can’t make another member admin or moderator
  • A Facebook group mod can’t remove another admin or moderator
  • And a Facebook moderator can’t manage the FB group settings
