Facebook has blocked more accounts on Tuesday ‘probably linked to a foreign government’. A website that claims to be connected to the Russian government published a list of Instagram accounts that they would have made.
Facebook lets you know that those accounts are now all blocked. “We had taken most of the accounts offline on Monday, now the rest is blocked”, said Nathaniel Gleicher, head of online safety at Facebook.
On Tuesday it was announced that 85 Instagram accounts and 30 Facebook accounts were blocked by the company after a tip from police. The pages would have posted news of the mid-term elections in the United States and celebrities.
