Popular social media platform Facebook has decided to “embarrass” online accounts, pages and groups that spread false news and information.
Facebook said in a recent press release that users who regularly spread false and misleading information on social media accounts will be warned by labeling their posts instead of removing them.
It should be noted that the problem of false and baseless information from almost all social media platforms, including Facebook, is becoming more and more serious whether it is related to elections, climate change or the Corona epidemic for the last one and a half years. Why not get the corona vaccine in recent months?
Facebook management says that deleting posts based on lies has not been an effective solution to this problem, so it has been decided to change the notification after expert advice.
For example, now if you visit a Facebook account, page or group where posts with incorrect information are often posted, you will get a notification warning you that this “account / The page / group regularly presents incorrect information. “
Although the Facebook press release did not say on what basis the information in a post would be considered false, inaccurate or misleading, it did make it clear that the information would be verified for that purpose. Help has been sought from “reliable sources”.
Individual social media accounts that spread lies will have their “online status” reduced in order to be “punished.” This means that other users will rarely see posts from these account.
