- Some pages showing their support to President Duterte have been deleted by Facebook
- Even other entertainment pages were taken down as well
- Facebook assured the users that spam behavior and abuses will be strictly observed
It has been reported that some fan pages and accounts have been shut down by Facebook. Some of these are those that show their support to President Rodrigo Duterte and even Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos.
KAMI has learned from GMA News that Facebook released a statement that 95 pages and 39 accounts were taken down on Tuesday. These are pages like DDS, DU30 Trending News, Duterte Phenomenon, Duterte Media, Duterte sa Pagbabago Bukas and even a page called Manang Imee.
According to Facebook, “We don’t want this kind of behavior on Facebook — and we’re investing heavily in both people and technology to keep bad content off our services.”
“We’re monitoring for a range of abuses on Facebook, including spam behavior, and will remove any account or page that breaks our rules,” they added.
Celebrity centered pages were deleted as well like Bossing Vic, Hot babes, Karlo ang Probinsyano and Like and Win.
“This is some of the most important work being done at Facebook. This take down is a small step in the right direction, and we will continue working to find and remove more bad content,” Facebook stated.
Around 15,000 people are working to review the content of Facebook pages and accounts to enhance the security on social media.
Weeks ago, almost 50 million Facebook users were affected by a security issue. Facebook forced to log out those accounts that could possibly affected by the attack.
According to Facebook, the attackers took advantage of the site’s vulnerability and its “View As” feature. In that way, the attackers could take Facebook access tokens which are keys allowing users to be kept logged in. Therefore, Facebook has reset the access tokens and temporarily disabled the “View As” feature.
As previously reported by KAMI, there are few steps to secure one's Facebook account so that it will prevent the hackers to access their information.
