Facebook may restrict accounts that repeatedly spread false information.

The US-based social media giant is introducing penalties to tackle offenders by restricting their accounts.

Misinformation on social media is a raging issue and these companies have taken several initiatives to curb its spread in the past. But with misinformation around Covid-19 seems to have alerted their resting senses, given the seriousness of the issue.

Facebook said in a blog post “Starting today , we will reduce the distribution of all posts in News Feed from an individual’s Facebook account if they repeatedly share content that has been rated by one of our fact-checking partners,” it added.

This means Facebook will be cutting down the reach of those posts shared by a person who has a history of sharing misinformation as per the fact-checking partners of the firm. So, the reach of the flagged post is lower from that individual on users’ News Feed.
