Hence, the article is about Meta Removed Over 600 Facebook And Instagram Accounts.

This violated Meta’s policy against coordinated inauthentic behavior. Meta reported, “We discovered this network after verifying information about a little portion of such activity initially suspected to have originated in China by investigators at Clemson University. Although the people behind it tried to conceal their identity and coordination, our investigation found connections to the Royal Malaysia Police.” 

“Typically, their online activity accelerated during weekdays, lunch break. Their fake accounts were underdeveloped, and some used collected images. They were detected and disabled by our automated systems,” the company confirmed. Meta stated that many fake accounts were said to have spent up to US$6,000 for promotional advertisements on Facebook and Instagram, which were paid for primarily in Malaysian currency.

To date, 596 Facebook accounts, 180 pages, 11 groups, and 72 Instagram accounts have been removed in connection with the case. “Around 427,000 accounts followed more pages, around 4,000 accounts joined several groups, and about 15,000 accounts followed Instagram accounts,” Meta claimed.
