Facebook a moment ago confirmed that a group which is not known is conducting a propaganda war against the U.S. midterm elections. Utilizing images and contest invites to rallies in Washington following week, the attackers are trying to spread discord into the American political landscape.
Facebook has not recognized whether Russian intelligence organizations were responsible, like with their 2016 election attacks, as this operation was more enlightened than earlier strategies that Facebook has applied safeguards to thwart.
At present, Facebook has eliminated 32 pages and accounts related with the group, involving “Mindful Being” and “Resisters,” few of which shared psychedelic memes in a try to cultivate themselves with receptive users.
