Facebook cracks down on 30,000 accounts for spreading fake news

At the end of last year, Facebook announced plans to start dealing with accounts that spread false news on social media.
Now, Facebook has just cracked down on 30,000 accounts found to be spreading fake news stories or spam in France ahead of the country's presidential election.

Facebook's security manager Shabnam Shaik says, 'our priority, of course is to remove the accounts with the largest footprint, with a high amount of activity and a broad reach. The purge will not remove all accounts that are spreading fake news, but we know we have to keep getting better'.

The spread of fake news has raised concerns in France ahead of the the country's national elections.
