Facebook plans to remove all fake videos from you News Feed

30. 8. 2017

In its quest to combat fake news and clickbait content, Facebook now targets fake videos.

Facebook has recently announced its plans to combat fake and/or misleading information and this time they will be focusing around: a) images that display a fake “play” button, giving the user that what upon clicking he or she will be viewing a video. Instead of video users are directed to the spammer’s website  and, b) videos that contain only a static image, making users think it’s your browser that is stopping you from viewing the video

Page owners that utilise any of the above two strategies will be experiencing a decrease in their reach. In the case of a repeat violation of Facebook’s posting guidelines can lead to the Page to be removed entirely.

Are you relieved that Facebook is tackling this upsetting trend?
