Facebook removes nearly 200 accounts linked to white supremacy groups

Breaking News

Facebook has removed nearly 200 social media accounts linked to white supremacy groups that planned to encourage members to attend protests over police killings of black people – in some cases with weapons, company officials said Friday.

The accounts on Facebook and Instagram were tied to the Proud Boys and the American Guard, two hate groups already banned on the platforms. Officials were already monitoring the accounts in preparation for removing them when they saw posts attempting to exploit the ongoing protests prompted by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

“We saw that these groups were planning to rally supporters and members to physically go to the protests and in some cases were preparing to go with weapons,” said Brian Fishman, Facebook’s director of counterterrorism and dangerous organizations policy.

The company did not divulge details of the account users — such as their specific plans for protests or where in the US they live. It said “approximately” 190 accounts were removed overall.

Both the Proud Boys and American Guard had been banned from Facebook for violating rules prohibiting hate speech. Facebook said it will continue to remove new pages, groups or accounts created by users trying to circumvent the ban.

Earlier this week, Facebook announced the removal of a “handful” of other accounts created by white supremacists who had been posing on Twitter as members of the far-left antifa movement.

Facebook announced two other actions on Friday to root out networks of fake accounts used in attempts to manipulate public opinion in Africa and Iraq.

  12. Laser engraving was invented in the 1960’s by scientists who realized that they could make lighting sources, redirect it’s energy,
    and also have a tool strong enough to impact many
    different materials. Laser etching is a term used for laser engraving.
    Lasers are employed in the current engraving industry.

    They’re known as CO2 lasers for the gases used to create
    the illumination source. They can be used to mark or
    engrave almost any material. Laser marking can also be called
    laser etching, but unlike traditional etching, it doesn’t require any chemicals or masks.
