After uncovering a coordinated campaign to influence the November US Congressional elections, Facebook adds approval page approval.
A total of 32 accounts were removed over Facebook and Instagram, including Facebook profiles and Pages and Instagram accounts. Now Facebook adds requirements to pages with a large audience. Facebook did not say what it regards as a "big crowd" but explained the changes and said that similar updates come to Instagram.
Accounts that manage Pages must use two-factor authentication and confirm their primary country location. Sellers who require additional authentication will receive a message at the top of the news feeds. The accounts will not be able to enter until they complete the authentication process. Facebook said it will start later this month.
Aside from the additional approval requirements, Facebook Pages will begin to show additional information, including whether a page has merged with another page and shows who controls the pages and primary country locations. [1
