Facebook revised its rules; Fake users may face a setback
San Francisco: The world’s largest social networking site Facebook on 10 August adopted necessary steps which make it difficult to run fake or compromised accounts on its platform as it demanded for authorization from its users who are having larger number of followers in the United States.
As per the version of Facebook officials, the company is organizing Page publishing authorization beginning with people that manage a page with large number of audience in the US. According to this revision of rules, people those who manage these pages would be required to satisfy an authorization procedure in order to continue to post which makes it difficult for users to maintain or administer a page using a fake account, opined the California based social media enterprise.
The revised provision would ask the Facebook Page administrators to secure their account with two-factor authentication and to confirm their primary home location. The users would witness more details in the Info as well as Ads section of Pages after a new section is added to show the primary country locations where those Pages have been managed from. These revised rules are also applicable for other Facebook platforms such as Instagram in the coming weeks onwards.
Facebook has deleted over 32 pages and accounts from its platform and Instagram as it found to be involved with inauthentic behavior reportedly.
