Facebook will now verify suspiciously popular accounts

May 29, 2020 18:57 IST

Social media biggie Facebook has announced that it will now begin to verify the identity of suspiciously popular accounts on its platform. The firm says it will now authenticate the identities of people being profiles that have a "pattern of inauthentic behaviour" and whose posts go viral quickly in the US. Reports say the move is a way for Facebook to deal with misinformation on its platform, and find out if a popular account is authentic or part of a propaganda campaign.
