Facebook removed nearly 3.4 billion fake accounts in 6 months.

Facebook chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg, pictured earlier this month in France, told reporters on Thursday that the tech giant is making nice strides in fighting hate speech and crime online.

The new Stories ring hasn’t formally been announced yet, therefore it may be a part of a bigger feature release coming this week.
