Can't Block Russian Spammers Because Can't Write In Russian

Discussion in 'Facebook API' started by JoeFromSD, Apr 16, 2019.

    I get these messages, or notifications from some Russians, or at least I think they are, maybe Ukrainians, asking me to like pages, all of them with beautiful sexy women. I can't block them because I can't write their name in Russian.

    • Maybe there’s a tool like HootSuite that can filter them out?
    • Or check your notifications more frequently so you don’t have to scroll so far?
    • Stop using facebook?

    They’re only notifications, if they were messages it would be a bigger problem. Fake and spam accounts are a problem on all social media sites.

    that's all Facebook has, no 'Report Spam' or whatever? Seems a pretty weak handling of our privacy.

    I think that's almost a given for a company that allowed Cambridge Analytica to happen, right?

    Facebook's moderation tools for groups and pages are ridiculously weak. They've had a decade to see what forum and blog owners need to run their sites and build it into Facebook but they've given their group and page admins none of the tools they need.
