Midterm elections: Facebook removes 115 suspicious accounts as US voters head to the polls

FACEBOOK says it has removed 115 accounts from the site and Instagram for suspected "co-ordinated inauthentic behaviour" as voting begins in the US midterm elections.

He added: "Our very early-stage investigation has so far identified around 30 Facebook accounts and 85 Instagram accounts that may be engaged in co-ordinated inauthentic behaviour.

“Almost all the Facebook Pages associated with these accounts appear to be in the French or Russian languages, while the Instagram accounts seem to have mostly been in English - some were focused on celebrities, others political debate."
