Facebook will reveal the publications of the “troll farm”

Facebook announced that by the end of the year it would create an instrument that would allow users to have a look at the pages and ads linked to the Russian Internet Research Agency. This company, often called a troll farm, is suspected in trying to affect the US public opinion during the last presidential elections. Facebook has been reproached numerous times previously that the social network was an unwilling assistant in this propaganda machine.

“It is important that people understand how foreign actors tried to sow division and mistrust using Facebook,” according to a company statement. “That's why as we have discovered information, we have continually come forward to share it publicly.” It is assumed that the new tool will be added to the Facebook Help Center and will allow to view pages and ads (as well as Instagram accounts) linked to the Internet Research Agency and created from January 2015 until August 2017.
