Facebook closing down fake accounts, pages
Facebook authorities have started closing down fake accounts and pages created using names of Bangladeshi VIPs, State Minister for Post and Telecommunications Tarana Halim has said.
She confirmed the shutdowns to bdnews24.com on Sunday after many Facebook (FB) users found their accounts closed following a verification process.
“We have identified IDs of those who created fake accounts and pages using names of VIPs. Facebook has traced some as well, they are working to close them down,” Tarana Halim said.
She added that only the ‘fake accounts using VIP names’ had been listed.
The state minister, however, has not mentioned any number but said that there were many, according to bdnews24.com.
