Facebook on Tuesday revealed new details about a batch of Russia-linked accounts on its platform and Instagram that attempted to spread politically divisive content in advance of the midterm elections.

The accounts posted divisive content on matters like race and gender and about public figures including President Trump and rapper Kanye West.
=================================================
One of the reasons that we didn't see coordinated Russian hacking of the recent election appears to be Facebook being proactive in removing accounts that were publishing divisive content. Their security staff 'removed 36 Facebook accounts, six Facebook pages and 99 Instagram accounts for “coordinated inauthentic behavior” — the company’s term for a group of accounts misrepresenting themselves, usually to influence discourse.'

Last I heard a panel from 5 countries was wanting to bring Zuck up on charges.
