People who manage these Pages will be required to complete an authorization process in order to continue to post, making it harder for people to administer a Page using a fake or compromised account.

San Francisco: Battling with challenges of millions of fake accounts, social media giant Facebook has come with a new plan. Facebook has asked users in the US, who have large number of followers, to authorise their page. 

"Today we're introducing Page publishing authorization starting with people that manage a Page with a large audience in the US," Facebook said.

According to reports, people who manage these Pages will be required to complete an authorization process in order to continue to post, making it harder for people to administer a Page using a fake or compromised account.

The new measures will ask administrators of Facebook pages to secure their account with two-factor authentication and confirm their primary home location.

Last week, Facebook deleted 32 Pages and accounts from its platform and Instagram for being "involved in coordinated inauthentic behavior".
