People on Facebook said they were interested in attending anti-Trump rallies hosted by a group that Facebook banned last week, including a sing-along in front of the White House and a protest in Rome when the president was meeting with the pope last year, according to archived pages.
At least three groups that Facebook banned this week for spreading disinformation shared similar names and traits with Twitter accounts that had been linked publicly to Russia six weeks earlier, underscoring the challenges of swiftly shutting down malicious influence campaigns even once strong hints emerge of who is behind it.
The social media company said that it couldn’t tie the activity to Russia, which interfered on its platform around the 2016 presidential election. But Facebook said the three dozen profiles shared a pattern of behavior with the previous Russian disinformation campaign.
