Reuters: Facebook cracks down on 30,000 fake accounts in France

Reuters: Facebook cracks down on 30,000 fake accounts in France. “Facebook Inc said on Thursday it suspended 30,000 accounts in France as the social network giant steps up efforts to stop the spread of fake news, misinformation and spam. The move, which comes 10 days before the first round of a hotly contested French presidential election, is among the most aggressive yet by Facebook to move against accounts that violate its terms of service, rather than simply respond to complaints.”
