DETERMINED NOT TO REPEAT PAST MISTAKES, FACEBOOK BANS PICTURES AIM TO INTERFERE

Credited with influencing the 2016 election, Facebook is determined not to make the same mistake twice.  Facebook has begun banning accounts and pages that are suspected to be influencing voter behavior. Facebook has said that it has found 17 suspected profiles on Facebook and 7 on Instagram.  That may not sound like a lot, but those 17 have already filed 9500 posts.  In all, 290,000 user accounts have followed these 17, and the 17 had purchased 150 ads on FB and IG. Be careful out there and always consider the source when reading your news.

The law prevents the use of tablets, computers, and other-Internet connected devices as well. This was a campaign promise of French president Emmanuel Macron, and after the measure was passed he tweeted, “Commitment held.”
