Facebook bans Philippine ‘fake accounts’ group followed by millions - Tech News


MANILA: Facebook says it has banned a Philippine digital marketing group which runs hundreds of pages across the social network with 43 million followers, accusing it of “inauthentic behaviour” and using fake accounts. Facebook has stepped up efforts to root out fake accounts after being criticised for failing to tackle hate speech and misinformation on its platforms. Filipinos are among the world’s heaviest users of social media, and the country has been a key battleground for fake news.
