Facebook puts down multiple pages for ‘Inauthentic Behavior’ across the globe

Author at TechGenyz Facebook
Facebook Inauthenticated Behavior

Facebook on Tuesday announced its action against the inauthentic behavior. It had removed 652 Pages, accounts, and groups linked to Iran and Russia that it says are engaged in “coordinated inauthentic behavior” on its site and on Instagram.

Today we removed multiple Pages, groups and accounts for coordinated inauthentic behavior on Facebook and Instagram. – Facebook Newsroom

As for Facebook authenticity matters so that people are able to trust the connections they make on these sites. And while it’s an ongoing process for Facebook to uproot these abuses they faces challenges as well because the people responsible for such activities are determined and well funded. But Facebook confirms that “We constantly have to improve to stay ahead.” By this Facebook meant building better technology, appointing more people, bringing law enforcement, security experts and other companies.

Facebook finds that the Iranian entities had mostly targeted the Facebook users of Middle East, the United Kingdom, Latin America, and the United States, but it did not mention any specific examples of what the organizations had attempted to do.

Facebook in its Newsroom blog post mentioned about an unnamed group allied to Iran which had shared indefinite “content” about “Middle East politics in Arabic and Farsi.” It is the same organization that also shared “content about politics in the UK and US in English,” hence providing misleading content to Facebook users.

For Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of the company “2018 is a very important election year” and so he reiterated some of the steps the company needs to take to prevent bad actors from sowing frictional content on its service.

In early July, Facebook said it removed 17 Facebook profiles, 8 Facebook pages, and 7 Instagram accounts that were engaging in “coordinated inauthentic behavior.”

Facebook is now trying to make clear its image and improve the overall security of its service after facing intense criticism for failing to prevent the spread of misinformation in the prelude to the 2016 U.S. Presidential election. Let’s see how far Facebook is able to take this for its global users.
