Additional measure introduced to curb fake accounts on Facebook

Additional measure has been introduced by Facebook to make the continuous use of fake accounts difficult to run.

The social media giant said Friday that it it demanded authorization from its users who have a large number of followers in the United States.

“Today we’re introducing Page publishing authorization starting with people that manage a Page with a large audience in the U.S.,” Facebook said.

People who manage these Pages will be required to complete an authorization process in order to continue to post, making it harder for people to administer a Page using a fake or compromised account, said the California-based social media company.

The new measures will ask administrators of Facebook pages to secure their account with two-factor authentication and confirm their primary home location.

Facebook said the requirement will be enforced soon this month, which will be applied to other Facebook platforms such as Instagram in the next few weeks.
