Facebook Uncovers Fake Accounts Ahead of Midterm Elections

Facebook删除试图干预美国中期选举的虚假账号

Facebook says the company has removed 32 pages and accounts from its social media sites ahead of midterm elections in the United States.

Facebook表示,该公司在美国中期选举之前删除了该社交网站上的32个账户和主页。

In a statement July 31, Facebook said those removed had violated company policy barring "inauthentic coordinated behavior." The policy is in place because, the statement continued, "we don't want people or organizations creating networks of accounts to mislead others about who they are, or what they're doing."

Facebook在7月21日的一份声明中表示,这些被删除的账户违反了该公司禁止“协同性造假行为”的政策。声明还表示,该政策已经落实到位,因为“我们不希望创建网络账户的个人或组织就他们的身份或行为误导他人。”

Facebook said it does not know who controlled the accounts but that they appeared to be fake. The company also did not directly suggest the pages were aimed at influencing the U.S. midterm elections in November. But it did compare the accounts to those set up by Russian-based Internet Research Agency, or IRA. It is facing criminal charges of illegal interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.

Facebook声称不知道谁控制了这些账户,但是它们似乎都是虚假账户。该公司也没有直接暗示这些页面旨在影响11月份举行的美国中期选举。但是该公司确实将这些账户同俄罗斯互联网研究机构创建的账户进行了对比。后者正面临非法干涉2016年美国总统选举的刑事指控。

The social media company said it is still early in its investigation of possible fake accounts. It also said it has shared the information with U.S. law enforcement agencies, Congress, and other technology companies.

这家社交媒体公司表示仍在调查可能的虚假账户,并称已经向美国执法机构、国会以及其它科技公司通报了这一信息。

The first of the pages was created in March 2017. The other removed material included eight Facebook pages, 17 Facebook profiles, and seven accounts of the photo-sharing site Instagram.

其中第一个主页是在2017年3月创建的。其它被删除的材料包括8个Facebook主页、17个Facebook账户以及7个照片共享网站Instagram的账户。

Facebook said one of the pages had 290,000 followers. The most followed pages used names like "Aztlan Warriors," ″Black Elevation," ″Mindful Being," and "Resisters."

Facebook表示,其中一个主页拥有29万粉丝。最受最捧的这些主页使用了类似Aztlan Warriors、Black Elevation、Mindful Being和Resisters等用户名。

The accounts also spent about $11,000 for 150 ads on Facebook and Instagram. The money was paid in U.S. and Canadian dollars from April 2017 to June 2018. The account also created about 30 events since May 2017.

这些账户还花费了大约1.1万美元在Facebook以及Instagram上投放了150个广告。这笔钱从2017年4月到2018年6月用美元和加元支付。从2017年5月以来,这些账户还发起了大约30个活动。

Facebook said since the company has increased efforts to prevent abuse, the creators of fake accounts have begun to employ trickier, more secretive efforts. For example, "they used VPNs and internet phone services, and paid third parties to run ads," the statement said. VPNs are virtual private networks.

Facebook表示,自从该公司加大力度防止网络滥用以来,虚假账户的创建者就开始使用更狡猾、更隐蔽的手段。例如,在该声明中提到,”他们利用了VPN和互联网电话服务,并通过第三方投放广告。“VPN是指虚拟专用网络。

However, the company added that it had found some connections between these fake accounts and the removed IRA accounts. One of the IRA accounts shared a Facebook event hosted by the "Resister" page. And the two also briefly had the same administrator.

该公司补充说,然而它们已经发现了这些虚假账户同被删除的俄罗斯互联网研究机构的账户存在一些联系。俄罗斯互联网研究机构的其中一个账户分享了由Resiter用户在其Facebook主页发起的一项活动。而且这两个账户还一度拥有同一个管理员。
