Imposter Express Tribune Facebook page spreading fake news

The impostor page has been reported to Facebook authorities


December 10, 2016

The Express Tribune has been inundated with hundreds of messages from our readers and well-wishers regarding a fake Facebook page that is impersonating the publication.

The Facebook page, which has stolen design elements from us, including The Express Tribune’s trademark red 'T', has garnered over 3,000 Facebook likes.

While we strive to remedy the problem, we thank our readers for informing us about the serious violation of our intellectual property.
We have already reported the impostor page to Facebook and hope quick action will be taken against those who have sought to harm The Express Tribune's image as a trusted news source across Pakistan and the world.

Unfortunately, there is only so much we can do at this time. The problem of fake news on social media platforms such as Facebook is a real and damaging one. In this case, it hurts not just The Express Tribune but also creates chaos and confusion among the public.

The Express Tribune's official Facebook page has a verified blue tick and nearly 2 million followers.
