As part of an effort to curb the use of the fake Facebook account in its social media platform, Facebook announced on Tuesday that it has taken down hundreds of these fake accounts. This account they said was linked to a government agency and they have taken them down for misleading people about their identity. This is a part of Facebook’s plan to stop account misinformation.

Reuters reported that this account was linked to the election that was conducted which saw President Yoweri Museveni who was being re-elected with serious alligator of voter fraud. Of which Facebook does not stand for and they have removed about 220 Facebook accounts, 32 Facebook Pages, 59 Facebook groups, and 139 Instagram accounts. These were all targeting users in Uganda early last month for political and election fraud. 

Facebook before now has been seriously security conscious because there has been severe security risk around the work. With Facebook taking down fake accounts monthly. Facebook Nathaniel Gleicher who is in charge of Facebook cybersecurity said “Tackling this type of deception is a security challenge. We know that these actors are going to continue to try to manipulate and deceive people on a range of platforms in any media that they can access,”

Finally in Palestine due to issues in politics, Facebook also remove a number of fake accounts, pages, groups, and even Instagram accounts. A total of 206 Facebook accounts, 178 Facebook pages, three Facebook groups, and 14 Instagram accounts were all taken down for posting things about politics.

This is a good measure Facebook has taken and it’s nice to know that fake accounts are been removed from the Facebook playroom. And we hope they continue the good work no matter how hard it gets.
