Facebook for Bloggers | What you need to know

Here is the reason why Facebook blocked blog post or bloggers. I have come across this query or question before writing this blog post multiple times.

At that time there were a lot of fake contents promoted and share which is why Facebook received backlash from Governments

The was the main reason behind this is to stop curb fake news or content. where it became difficult to share your contents on the platform
