It’s one of the biggest news stories of 2017.
A year ago, a massive data breach revealed that a massive number of Facebook users had their private information stolen and that the company had been spying on them to target advertising revenue.
Facebook has said the breach had nothing to do with the botnet it uses to spy on its users, but the company has been trying to keep people’s personal data safe since then.
Its main strategy has been to protect users from spam and bots.
Now, it seems, it’s coming up with a way to block all that spam.
This week, the company announced it’s working with an outside company to create a new “bot blocking tool” that blocks bots and malicious websites from using Facebook’s services, including its News Feed, Facebook News Feed and its Messenger apps.
Facebook also said it’s creating a new privacy tool that will allow users to opt out of receiving spam, as well as allow Facebook to track users and their online activity.
“This is going to be a huge win for users,” says Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who’s been a vocal proponent of using bots to combat spam on Facebook.
“People are using bots and spam to get around these restrictions on what you can see and do on Facebook.”
It’s also a big win for Facebook, which is a big business.
A big part of the company’s business is selling advertising on its platforms, and Facebook has spent $20 billion since the company was founded in 2004 to get its ad business growing.
Its stock price has skyrocketed in the past year, and the company now makes up over 70 percent of the U.S. market for mobile ads.
Facebook is also spending a lot of money on ads on its News feed.
“If you’re an advertiser, you want to know where the most click-throughs are and where the users are,” says Kevin Kelly, the head of ad strategy for ad tech firm Kantar Media, which recently launched a new research company called AdWords.
“And if you’re a business, you know, ‘How can I get the most clicks?'”
But Facebook is finding it hard to convince advertisers that bots aren’t spam and that Facebook isn’t spying on their business.
Facebook doesn’t have an official list of what it calls “spam bots,” which is used by millions of sites to spam users with adverts.
“It’s a little bit like spamming a cereal box,” says Kelly.
“But it’s not a cerealbox.”
Zuckerberg says that bots have been a problem for Facebook for a long time.
The company has blocked bot accounts and has had to pay $20 million to get rid of one.
But the company hasn’t always been able to stop them.
“When Facebook was first launched, a bot would pop up,” Kelly says.
“Now we have the bot-banning tool that we’re working on.”
Zuckerberg and his team have been working on this bot-blocking tool for a while, and they say they have already identified a few dozen spam bots that Facebook has blocked.
“They’re really good at it, they’re really bad at it,” says Mark Mahaney, Facebook’s head of global communications.
He says that the team is also looking into a new way to filter out bots that spam Facebook users’ News Feeds and Messenger apps, as they have been doing since 2016.
“We’re not blocking all the bots,” Mahaney says.
But he says the company is looking at ways to block bot accounts that are not spam.
Facebook’s bot-stopping tool will be in a new version of its Newsfeed app, which was launched last year.
It’ll be updated on a daily basis, which means it won’t be available for all users, including those who don’t use the app.
“The News Feed is really important,” Mahays says.
Facebook says that users will be able to opt-out of receiving “spammy” ads and “malicious” content.
It will also be possible to opt in to a third party program that will filter out “spammers” and “spoofers,” a category that includes bot accounts.
But Facebook says it’s only going to block “malvertisements” that have been sent to a specific user or specific user’s phone number.
“These are ads that have never been paid for,” Kelly explains.
The Bot-Banning Tool Will Block “Spam Bots” and Spoofers, but not “Spammy Ads” source Hacker Report title Facebook’s ‘spammy’ ads are fake, Facebook says article Facebook is rolling out a new bot-fighting tool to block spam bots and other “spyware” from using its services.
The new tool will allow Facebook users to decide whether they want to be notified when a spam bot appears on their News Feed.
But, it will also allow Facebook owners to opt into a program that blocks “spies” and other fake or malicious ads.
