Difference Between Admin and Moderator on Facebook
Understanding the admin role and moderator role is critical for effective group management.
An admin of a Facebook group has full control over the group settings, including adding or removing members, approving or denying posts, and assigning admin or moderator roles to other members.
Admins can also change the group name, privacy settings, and group description.
Moderators, on the other hand, can approve or deny membership requests and posts, remove posts and comments, and remove or block people from the group.
They don’t have the ability to change group settings or assign roles.

- Open the group in which you want to view the admin and moderator list.
- Tap the “Members” section.

This information helps members know who to contact for group-related queries and is an important transparency aspect of group management.
Remember, whether you are adding an admin or moderator, or just checking who currently holds these positions, it’s always a good idea to be sure that these individuals align with the group’s common interests and are willing to help manage the community according to the group rules.
