Facebook is going to provide location data for popular pages and accounts on both the social network platform and Instagram. The location markers have been so far introduced for the US users.
By doing this, the company seeks to provide users with more transparency over the content they see on the platforms. Now, it will be easier to check the authenticity of content which is extremely important for protecting the integrity of the upcoming US elections. Some outside influences have been reported that tried to impact voters’ opinions in the past, so the social network tries its best to prevent cases of misuse of the platform.
