Facebook Removes two Misleading networks from Russia. Facebook has removed two networks from Facebook accounts and pages from Russia that are not related to each other.
The networks were guilty of “coordinated misconduct” by misleading Facebook users about their true identity.
One of the networks consisted of 62 fake accounts from Russia,
which were used to manage ten pages and 25 Facebook groups.
Political news about Russia, Ukraine, Europe and the civil war in Syria was spread on those pages and groups.
According to Facebook, the pages were followed by 34,000 accounts and around 86,000 users were members of one of the Facebook groups.
The other network consisted of four pages, sixteen Facebook accounts and one Instagram account.
The pages, followed by around eleven hundred people,
posted political messages and focused on Germany, the United Kingdom and Spain, among others.
The Facebook policy does not enable users to behave differently on the social network.
Facebook indicates that the accounts and pages have been deleted for that reason, and not based on the content.
