Integrity is the prime ethical concern everyone faces with respect to social media. The Survey conducted in the U.S. revealed that 43% of Social Media Users choose Facebook as the source of news. Customers tend to perplex regarding the information they find here. After a thorough Research & Development, Facebook came up with a strategy 'Remove, Reduce & Inform'.
