Facebook pages have been a great place for not just the brands and websites to broadcast to ‘fans‘, but also allows members to post content among themselves. While this is good on most counts, the number of spammers making use of this feature is on the rise as well. Facebook appears to have taken note of this as they have recently launched a ‘Spam filter‘ for fan pages.
An explanation of the service notes,
“Facebook is now helping Page admins ensure that the most valuable content posted by users on their Page wall is more visible to anyone viewing the Page. We are now offering automatic content filtering on Page walls that will ensure that posts soliciting spam are removed from public view as well as ensure that posts containing good content remain more visible.”
This is a good way to encourage genuine discussion among people with similar tastes and ideas on a page. What do you think?
