Facebook tool informs users who 'liked' Russian fake news pages

The Internet Research Agency is a troll farm with ties to the Russian government.

Since then, revelations from multiple investigations into Russia's attempts to influence the US election have led Zuckerberg to change his tune.

Facebook said that it'll roll out a new tool later this year that will help users determine if they've liked or followed a Russian propaganda account. Facebook has since deactivated the accounts.

Facebook said on Wednesday, Nov. 22, that it will roll out a new tool later this year to help users determine if the pages they like or follow on Facebook or Instagram is secretly being run by Russian trolls. "And it's also why we're building the tool we are announcing today".

"During our open hearing with Facebook, Twitter and Google earlier this month, we asked them to notify their users if they had been targeted by or seen content as part of the Russian active measures campaign", Schiff said in a statement.

Some also argued that Kris could have some to give to some of the grandchildren on the Jenner side of the family. The nine pajama sets are labeled with names of her grandchildren.

Before the 2016 election in the USA, the company's security team also reported to US law enforcement officials indications that a group called APT28 had targeted employees of American political parties.

USA lawmakers called the announcement a positive step. Facebook posts that quickly receive a lot of likes are more likely to be placed higher in other people's feeds, meaning users buoyed by fake likes can ultimately generate significantly more real attention and influence.

The announcement comes after prodding by lawmakers and critics urging Facebook to give users a clearer understanding of whether or not they were exposed to Russia's disinformation campaign and how.

Shortly after the 2016 presidential election, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg dismissed the burgeoning claim that Russian-backed propaganda on the popular social-media platform played a role in Donald Trump's shock victory over Hillary Clinton.

"It's a much more challenging issue to identify and notify reliably people who may have been exposed to this content on an individual basis", Stretch told congressional investigators.
