On Friday, Facebook announced that it had removed yet another batch of pages and accounts from its platforms that pretended to be U.S. activist groups. These Facebook and Instagram accounts were made in Iran, like the more than 600 pages and accounts that the company removed in August. Unlike that earlier batch, Facebook has not linked the newly disclosed accounts to Iranian state media, though the company says it is still investigating. Whatever these pages’ provenance is, it’s clear from looking at the kinds of content they shared that they had a political motive.
