We all know and understand the power of social media these days. Since I already have a personal Facebook account, after joining WA, I decided to set up a business Facebook page associated with my website.

Recently, I received a Facebook notification that someone had posted something to my business page. Normally that would have been fine, except when I looked at it, there was an unknown and unfamiliar link within the post. Because we must always be careful with unfamiliar links, I wanted to make sure my page was as safe as possible for my visitors.

At that point, I decided I wanted to approve what was being posted to my page. So, I set up a MODERATOR feature.

I will go through setting this feature up as well as the approval of a post. For approval, there are a few steps involved, but to make sure you are providing good information and a nice professional business page for your visitors, it is worth it.

SETTING UP THE MODERATOR FEATURE:

1. Click on “Settings

Thanks for the training on setting up Moderator Feature.
You mentioned you had an unknown and unfamiliar link within the post. How did you check that link for safety?

Thank you for stopping by. I didn't check the link. Because there are so many viruses, I didn't click on it. The posting had nothing to do with my niche and it was complete spam, so I didn't pursue it. I hope that is helpful.
