Facebook will proactively shut down fake Groups and Pages, even if they were not found to be in violation of its Community Guidelines, the company has announced.
In a blog post on Wednesday, the social media giant said when a Page or Group is removed for violating policies, “we may now also remove other Pages and Groups even if that specific Page or Group has not met the threshold to be unpublished on its own”.
Facebook also listed other steps to handle Page content that goes against its policies.
“People who manage a Page will see a new tab that shows when we remove certain content that goes against our Community Standards and when we reduce the distribution of posts that have been rated false by a third-party fact-checker,” said Facebook.

The”To start, we’re including content removed for policies like hate speech, graphic violence, harassment and bullying, and regulated goods, nudity or sexual activity, and support or praise of people and events that are not allowed to be on Facebook,” said the post.

Facebook said it has seen people working to get around its enforcement by using duplicate Pages that they already manage for the same purpose as the Page we removed for violating its standards.
“We hope this will give people the information they need to police bad behaviour from fellow Page managers, better understand our Community Standards, and, let us know if we’ve made an incorrect decision on content they posted,” it added. (IANS)
