Changes in Facebook Application

Britain’s contest guard dog said on Friday social media company Facebook removed 16,000 accounts that were selling and buying fake reviews of different products and services, the second time the regulator had to get involved.

What said Contest and Markets Authority (CMA)?

Facebook made more changes for detecting and removing paid content which could lead astray users on its platforms, including the famous photo-sharing app Instagram, the Contest and Markets Authority (CMA) said. “We have tied up extensively with the CMA (Contest and Markets Authority) to address this issue. Fraudulent and illusory activity is not allowed on our platforms, including contribution or trading fake reviews,” a Facebook representative said.

CMA (Contest and Markets Authority)  abolition on false reviews

The CMA began a abolition on false reviews from 2019 when it first asked Facebook and e-commerce platform eBay to check their websites after it found proof of a growing marketplace for deceiving customer reviews on the platforms.

Facebook has also been under inspection by the CMA (Contest and Markets Authority) for antitrust concerns over the technology company’s accession of GIF website Giphy. It has been under coercion the world over for its data sharing practices as well as fraud news and hate speech.

CMA Chieftain Executive Andrea Coscelli said,

“The epidemic has meant that more and more people are buying online, and millions of us read reviews to qualify to make informed choices when we shop around. That’s why fraud and deceiving reviews are so harmfully,” said CMA Chieftain Executive Andrea Coscelli. CMA’s (Contest and Markets Authority) abolition on Facebook coincides with Britain’s efforts to set up a devoted digital markets unit within the regulatory sovereignty to especially look at governing digital platforms.ou
