Facebook groups have a relatively new feature that lets you tag "everyone" in a post. This will notify all the members that they have been mentioned. It's an action that can be helpful sometimes, but it can also be a nuisance or a problem if misused. Here are some tips on wisely using the "everyone" tag and disabling it if you don't want to receive these notifications.
- Use the "everyone" tag only when you have something important or relevant to share with the whole group. For example, if you are the admin of a group and you want to announce a new rule, a change in the group settings, or a special event, you can use the "everyone" tag to make sure everyone sees your post.
- Don't use the "everyone" tag for trivial or personal matters, such as sharing memes, jokes, opinions, or questions unrelated to the group's topic or purpose. This can annoy or offend other members who may not be interested in your post or who may have different views or preferences. You can use other tags, such as @friends, @family, or @colleagues, to target specific people who may be more interested in your post.
- Don't use the "everyone" tag to spam, harass, or bully other members. This can be considered as a violation of Facebook's community standards and can result in your post being removed, your account being suspended, or your group being deleted. You can report any abusive posts that use the "everyone" tag to Facebook by clicking on the three dots icon on the top right corner of the post and selecting "Report post".
- If you don't want to receive notifications from posts that use the "everyone" tag, you can disable them by following these steps:
- Go to the group's page and click the "Notifications" button in the top right corner.
- Select "Manage notifications".
- Under "What notifications do you want?", select "Off".
- Under "Do you want to be notified when someone tags everyone?", select "No".
- Click on "Done".
Following these tips, you can use the "everyone" tag in Facebook groups respectfully and responsibly and avoid unwanted notifications.
