Facebook Is Now Being Accused Of Influencing The Ontario Election - 2018-05-29
Not long after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckergberg was grilled by US Congress for their role in the Cambridge Analytica Scandal, some Canadians are accusing facebook of again letting fake users influence an election.
Facebook users are accusing the social media network of being complacent and not removing fake accounts be created with the sole purpose of sharing propaganda relating to the upcoming Ontario Election. In a Reddit thread users shared where they have seen these fake accounts, from the comment sections on CBC Facebook posts to groups like Ontario Proud.
The original Reddit poster shared all their clues to spot a phony Facebook account including generic and false work and education experience, made up addresses that don't exist in the city the user claims to live in, and having only been on Facebook for a few months.
