New Tools will prevent Unwanted Request and Messages: Facebook

 

The social networking Giant Facebook is known to improve its security tools every now and then to help users get the most secure and comfortable social media experience. Recently Facebook announced some new features to help prevent unwanted friend requests and messages.

Facebook Global Head of Safety Antigone Davis wrote on Facebook’s blog,” “We’ve heard stories from people who have blocked someone only to encounter the same harasser using a different account. In order to help prevent those bad encounters, we are building on existing features that prevent fake and inauthentic accounts on Facebook.”

With the help of these new features the user can avoid any unwanted messages and requests from people. When the user blocks and unwanted person and the person tries to contact the user again with a new account, these new tools will help prevent such cases by using signals, like IP addresses, to recognize when someone has created a fake or inauthentic account.
Earlier Facebook had introduced a feature to ignore conversations, which disables notifications from the conversation and moves the conversation into the user’s filtered messages folder. Once in the filtered messages folder, the user can read the conversation without the sender being able to know if he read it. This is currently available for one-on-one messages and will be available for group messages soon.

Talking about the new feature Davis wrote on the blog, “The person who blocked the original account is in control, and must initiate contact with the new account in order for them to interact normally.” He also said,” The Company has worked with the National Network to End Domestic Violence and worked to learn more about the experiences of journalists on Facebook.
It is noteworthy that Facebook continues to work with experts in a variety of fields to offer maximum safety resources for people on Facebook.

Facebook has a strong stance against against bullying and harassment. Recently it unveiled its own internal policies around harassment and bullying. Facebook also outlined its investigation process in response to reports of harassment or bullying.
