Facebook recently announced a new safety measure to keep Facebook pages secured. Any page with large U.S followings has become hard to administer due to the compromised or fake accounts running the page. Now, few Facebook Pages will have to get across a “Page Publishing Authorization” process. This will necessitate the Page managers to protect their accounts and verify their current location.
Facebook says the procedure will take only a few minutes to be completed. Only if a Page needs this authorization, the respective Page admins will obtain a notice at the top of their News Feed which will guide them to begin the verification process. When the Page owners click done, a message will inform them the reason why this process is being done and what are the steps they have to take in order to be safe. In order to secure the account, Facebook requests the Page manager to safeguard the respective account by means of a two-factor authentication. Which makes it more difficult for hackers or third-party to hijack their account. It is the best exercise that all the Facebook users and not just Page admins must follow.
If the Page admins choose to not- submit the Authorization, they will not be able to post to their Pages, until they do so. The company says that the enforcement will begin this month.
Distinctly the Facebook Page administrators will need to confirm their location. This will then be set on the Page as the Page’s primary country and show in the display of the new Page Info tab, which Facebook introduced in the month of June.
Now, Facebook will also display an entire list of the countries of the people who bring about the Page, and the number of managers that hail from each country on the list. Also, in addition, under the Page History, Facebook will now display when a Page has been merged with another.
The company believes that this brand-new policy will originally roll out to Pages only with large U.S. viewers and followers, and Instagram will soon be following the similar procedure to secure & safeguard the page visitors interest.
