Accordingly Facebook Inc said it has removed more accounts from Iran, Russia, Macedonia and Kosovo, citing what it described as "coordinated inauthentic behavior."  Meanwhile the social media platform said a total of 2,632 pages, groups, and accounts were removed from Facebook and Instagram for operations linked to the above mentioned countries. Facebook said 513 of those accounts were tied to Iran, while 1,907 were linked to Russia.



Meanwhile the accounts tied to Russia were largely removed for spam with a small portion of those engaging in coordinated inauthentic behavior, according to the statement. Reportedly Facebook also said the pages and accounts were removed for their behavior and not content.
