Social media giant purges pages in connection to three operations which displayed 'coordinated inauthentic behaviour'.

Axar.az reports citing MEE that Facebook has removed hundreds of pages and accounts from its platforms that originated from countries including Egypt and the United Arab Emirates for engaging in “coordinated inauthentic behavior”, its head of cybersecurity policy said.

Three unconnected operations - one originated from the UAE, Egypt, and Nigeria, and the others from Egypt and Indonesia - have been identified by the social media giant for displaying behaviors that “manipulate” its users on Facebook and Instagram, Nathaniel Gleicher said in a statement released on Thursday.

The campaigns have been taken down based on their behavior, not the content they posted, Gleicher said. In a video published last year, he explained that coordinated inauthentic behaviour was one of the forms of "abuse" that Facebook was trying to eliminate.

“In each of these cases, the people behind this activity coordinated with one another and used fake accounts to misrepresent themselves, and that was the basis for our action,” he said.
