Meta removed thousands of fake Facebook accounts based in China that were impersonating Americans and posting about partisan issues.

The tech giant warned of foreign threat actors attempting to influence audiences ahead of the 2024 US election.

Meta’s report highlighted an increase in Chinese online influence operations targeting global audiences.

Analysis suggests that China may be changing its interference tactics.

“There are a number of times when a tip from government has enabled us to take action … quickly” against covert foreign influence operations, Nathaniel Gleicher, Meta’s head of security policy, told reporters.

“This is the most notable change in the threat landscape compared with 2020,” Ben Nimmo, Meta’s global threat intelligence lead, told reporters.

“Some people and institutions have launched one ‘rumor campaign’ after another against China on social media platforms and spread a tremendous amount of disinformation about China,” said Liu Pengyu, a spokesperson for the Chinese Embassy in Washington, told CNN.

The Chinese government has been found to operate the world’s largest known online disinformation operation, harassing US residents, politicians, and businesses.

Despite efforts to protect elections, Meta has laid off members of its team countering misinformation and disinformation.
