Facebook Tackles Leftist Agitprop

Believe it or not, Facebook made a move this week that conservatives might cheer.

Believe it or not, Facebook made a move this week that conservatives might cheer, however mildly. “Today we removed 32 Pages and accounts from Facebook and Instagram because they were involved in coordinated inauthentic behavior,” Facebook said in a statement. “This kind of behavior is not allowed on Facebook because we don’t want people or organizations creating networks of accounts to mislead others about who they are, or what they’re doing.”

According to The Daily Caller, “Many of the named pages and accounts seem to espouse progressive or left-wing political messages.” Even NBC admitted, “Most of the campaign focused on left-leaning issues such as women’s rights, the rights of indigenous people and general resistance to the Trump administration, according to a sample of about a dozen posts released by Facebook.” One page was called the “Resisters,” and it was trying to schedule protests in DC.

Then again, this wasn’t exactly a massive effort. Those 32 “bad actors” accounted for just $11,000 in ads and a following of 290,000 people. A proverbial drop in the bucket considering Facebook’s billions of users and billions in value.
