Facebook Trying To Eliminate More Fake Likes, Accounts

Facebook is improving its internal tools to track down more fake accounts and fake likes. Over the past six months, the network has been fighting a like spamming operation, which it has finally shut down. That operation generated thousands of fake likes on various pages.

Those likes were part of a plan to legitimize fake accounts that could friend actual users. Just by getting rid of this particular issue, Facebook says up to 3% of likes could disappear from some pages.

Facebook is working on other ways to identify and crack down on fake accounts.
