Facebook now blocks ads from pages that repeatedly spread fake news!


Facebook added an additional defense today against the spread of viral hoaxes and false news or scams. 
"Over the past year we have taken several steps to reduce false news and hoaxes on Facebook. Currently, we do not allow advertisers to run ads that link to stories that have been marked false by third-party fact-checking organizations. Now we are taking an additional step. If Pages repeatedly share stories marked as false, these repeat offenders will no longer be allowed to advertise on Facebook." 
Thats a quoted post from the newsroom Wordpress site
In that same post, the company says it is cracking down on the “instances of Pages using Facebook ads to build their audiences in order to distribute false news more broadly.” This latest effort is aimed at keeping these false scam pages from fooling facebook users while making money. But if an offending page stops sharing false news, may become eligible to run ads again after Facebook approval.
