Facebook Inc said on Tuesday it has removed more accounts from Iran, Russia, Macedonia and Kosovo, citing what it described as "coordinated inauthentic behavior."
513 of those pages were groups and accounts that engaged in “inauthentic behavior" as part of multiple networks tied to Iran.
A total of 2,632 pages, groups and accounts were removed from Facebook and Instagram for operations linked to the above-mentioned countries, the social media platform said.
Facebook said that they were taking down the pages and accounts because of the behavior of the accounts and not the content they posted.
