Facebook's parent company says both operations used fake accounts across social media sites to promote Chinese and Russian interests
As artificial intelligence becomes more widely available, bad actors are turning to computer-generated faces in their attempts to manipulate social media networks.
Meta says it has disrupted a large Russian network of fake accounts pushing a pro-Kremlin view of the war in Ukraine and a separate Chinese campaign targeting the U.S. midterm elections.
Stanford researchers uncovered more than 1,000 of these LinkedIn profiles. A technology that has been used to promote misinformation online has now entered the corporate world.
The Chinese operation is one of six networks blocked from Facebook and Instagram after spreading false information and harassing opponents.
