A small group of fake Facebook accounts has been removed, after trying to disrupt political activity in the United States, as well as a few other countries.

According to WILX, these accounts originated out of China.

The activity that had gone in the U.S. had no following, according to Facebook. The content posted on those Facebook pages had been both for and against Presidential candidates Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, and Donald Trump.

Another group out of the Philippines had also been removed.

The people behind this had attempted to hide behind the network and conceal their identities with a virtual private network.
