New Security Measures of Facebook Inc.


A week after the Facebook identified on its platform a new coordinated political influence campaign, which can mislead users ahead of November’s U.S. congressional elections, new security measures comes up this week.

Last week 32 pages and accounts have been removed from platforms of Facebook and Instagram.

On Friday, the world's largest social media with more than 2.5 billion users, in seeking to enhance security measures, declared that an authorization process will be require from users who manage Facebook pages with the large U.S. following.

The new measures will require the administrators of Facebook pages to secure their account with two-factor authentication and confirm their primary home location.

Facebook will also add a section that shows the primary country from where a page is being managed.

Facebook-owned photo-sharing app Instagram will also roll out similar features in the coming weeks.

As about the debate around access to the gun in the United States intensifies, yesterday the Facebook spokesperson said that the company is removing content related to instructions on 3D printing of firearms.

“Sharing instructions on how to print firearms using 3D printers is not allowed under our Community Standards. In line with our policies, we are removing this content from Facebook,” the social media spokesman said.

Facebook did not clarify if it would remove only the related posts or the host pages and accounts as well, but said it would soon share an updated policy on restricted goods.
