Facebook removes accounts linked to Georgia, Vietnam

Facebook Inc. shut down two unconnected networks of accounts, pages and groups for engaging in "foreign and government interference" on its platform and on Instagram LLC's photo and video-sharing social networking service.

Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebook's head of cybersecurity policy, said in a Dec. 20 blog post that the social media company removed 39 Facebook accounts, 344 pages, 13 groups and 22 Instagram accounts that originated in Georgia. Individuals behind these networks posed as news organizations and impersonated political parties.

Gleicher said that the company also removed 610 accounts, 89 Facebook pages, 156 groups and 72 Instagram accounts that originated in Vietnam and the U.S. Some of the individuals behind these networks "used profile photos generated by artificial intelligence and masqueraded as Americans" to join groups and post certain content.

Facebook recently took down accounts, pages and groups involved in similar activities.
