Facebook Is Removing Secret And Closed Options For Groups

Just as it is today, there are restrictions to if and when an admin can change the privacy setting of a group. Group members are always notified when an admin updates the group’s privacy setting,” Facebook said in an update. The company claims this will simplify who can find groups and see its members and posts.In private groups, only confirmed members are able to see who else is in the group and what the other members have posted. Admins are able to control who discovers the group, either by making it “hidden” or “visible.” The same community standards will apply to public and private groups, though, as they have to public, closed, and secret ones before. As such, Facebook is still able to look out for “bad actors and bad content.”The StrategyThe change seems to be in line with CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s plans, which he outlined during the company’s most recent F8 developer conference. He positioned private groups as big part of Facebook’s strategy going forward, and this indeed seems like part of such sentiments. Unfortunately, while this helps people differentiate public groups from private ones more efficiently and with less confusion, it still doesn’t address the pervasiveness of hate groups on the platform.Thoughts about Facebook groups being divided into two categories moving forward?

Admins can control the visibility of their groups through a new setting.  ( Oliver Graumnitz | Pixabay ) For a long time, Facebook has offered three visibility settings for groups: Open, Closed, and Secret. But now the company is going to shift to much simpler options: Public and Private.While “Open” was pretty much self-explanatory, “Closed” and “Secret” often were the cause of confusion among Facebook users. An admin might set a group to Closed without realizing that it would still be searchable, for example.Which is why Facebook is thinning the options down to just two basic settings. Public groups can be joined by everyone and are searchable by everyone, as well. Meanwhile, Private groups require permission to access — and whether groups can be searchable are now determined via a “visibility” setting.

South Africas Eastern Cape Kwandwe Private Game R

first_imgSouth Africa’s Eastern Cape Kwandwe Private Game Reserve has grown the number of its award-winning safari guiding team to offer guests a diverse range of specialised activities, available at any time during their stay, included in their stay.Kwandwe’s guests are invited to choose between a number of different wildlife viewing activities each day, hosted by guides who reveal Kwandwe’s wilderness by open topped 4×4, on foot or by boat. At 22,000 hectares, approximately four times the size of Bermuda but with only 26 rooms split between two small safari lodges and three private safari villas, Kwandwe offers not just a personalised safari experience but a private one as well. Furthermore, with just a small number of guests on the reserve at any one time, it boasts a light environmental impact and one of the highest land to guest ratios found anywhere in South Africa.Specialists in walking, birding and photographic safaris as well as fishing, guides encourage guests to spend as much time out of the vehicle as in. They can choose a thrilling Big Five bush walk, enjoy a slow safari, pausing to learn about the reserve’s impressive biodiversity as well as the more difficult to encounter and observe insects, bird and wildlife or enjoy some quiet contemplation time surrounded by the African bush while fishing for bass.The guides’ areas of expertise are as varied as the reserve itself.Alfie Curling – Having guided for 11 years at Kwandwe alone, there is nothing Alfie hasn’t mastered. He is Kwandwe’s lead Birding Guide with expert knowledge of Eastern Cape species. A competent and informative Walking Guide, a skill learnt young following his father on trails through the bush near the Kruger, his other big passion is fishing. Alfie has worked with the wildlife team to improve the fish species in Kwandwe’s two dams and now has great fun teaching guests to catch (and release) some fine specimens.Brenden Dredge too specialises in Walking and Birding Safaris and holds a degree in ichthyology making him Kwandwe’s most learned fisherman. His formative years living in the wilds of Zimbabwe, Kenya and Malawi developed his curiosity and interest in Africa’s smaller creatures and has consequently become particularly sharp on the calls of its birdlife.A professional photographer with six years’ under his belt even before joining Kwandwe, Ruan Springorum’s initial enthusiasm for wildlife photography combined when growing up near the Kruger and accompanying his press photographer uncle on assignments. He also is a snake handler and expert 4×4 Off Road Driver.While many of the guides already hold guiding qualifications, the whole guiding team regardless of prior experience partakes in a wide-ranging training programme on an ongoing basis.last_img read more
