Facebook fighting misinformation on its platform following Presidential election results

Social media giant Facebook has decided it will start enforcing policies towards groups that have too many posts that violate its content rules on probation. This is the latest attempt by the company to fight the spread of misinformation on its own platform. Facebook will also start to restrict any groups that are both private and public that receive multiple warnings for violating the company’s community standards. This means that the moderators for these groups will need to approve posts manually for a 60 day period with no appeal available if a group reaches probationary status.

A spokesperson for the social networking giant spoke of the policies, “We are temporarily requiring admins and moderators of some political and social groups in the US to approve all posts, if their group has a number of Community Standards violations from members.” The actions are part of a “measure we’re taking in order to protect people during this unprecedented time.”
