Facebook Vice President of Integrity, Guy Rosen has launched a move against misinformation through addition of trust indicators on news feeds.

The leading social media network will disable inappropriate content in groups, especially that which is likely to cause or promote abuse and violence.

In addition, Facebook will have a “group quality” feature which will provide information on any post that has been removed due to false content.

“This involves removing content that violates our policies, reducing the spread of problematic content that does not violate our policies and informing people with additional information so they can choose what to click, read or share,” Rosen said.

As of Wednesday, 10th April, Facebook will ensure zero impersonations through use of a ‘verified badge’ on messenger to avoid scammers who pretend to be prominent people.
