The idea is that by giving users access to such information, Facebook can expand the pool of people keeping an eye out for potentially malicious actors. While not everyone will bother to check the details, it only takes one report on a suspect account to alert Facebook or Instagram’s security teams, and they can then review and remove questionable Pages and profiles before they have a chance to do any damage.

Worth noting too, Facebook recently removed a cluster of 652 Pages, groups and accounts which were found to be engaging in coordinated, inauthentic activity, likely designed to manipulate public opinion. Such misuse is difficult for Facebook to stay on top of, but by adding in new tools like these, they broaden their detection capacity, which could help them avoid future interference.

But there is one particularly interesting note in Instagram’s tool which isn’t available on Facebook – especially for social media managers. See that last measure on Instagram’s list?

    Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.

    The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

    There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable.

  6. Social Stream says:

    If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable.

  7. Social Stream says:

    It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters

  8. Social Stream says:

    The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

  9. Social Stream says:

    The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested.

    Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

  11. Social Stream says:

    Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old.
