Facebook has announced that it has deleted pages, collections and accounts linked to Iran because of the use and coordination of false accounts directed against many countries, including France.
The social networking site said the calculations were aimed at individuals around the world, but more so in the Middle East and South Asia.
Facebook said it had removed 783 pages, collections and accounts that reproduced Iran's official position on sensitive issues such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Syria and Yemen in targeted countries, under cover of local accounts or pages.
"Although the people behind these activities tried to hide their identity, but a manual check allowed us to link these accounts with Iran," the website said in a statement.
These activities have been discovered in 26 countries in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and South Africa.
