"Many used the same techniques to make their content appear more popular on Facebook than it really was.
Nathaniel Gleicher, Head of Cybersecurity Policy at Facebook, said in a statement “Others were ad farms using Facebook to mislead people into thinking that they were forums for legitimate political debate". Meanwhile the action is part of Facebook's new policy against Pages, Groups and accounts created to stir up political debate including in the US, the Middle East, Russia and the UK. Topics like natural disasters or celebrity gossip have been popular ways to generate click bait.

The spokesperson added.
