Facebook shuts down accounts, pages linked to Duterte, Imee Marcos


Facebook said it had taken down scores of pages and accounts in the Philippines, including those linked to President Rodrigo Duterte and Imee Marcos, daughter of dictator Ferdinand Marcos, for violating its spam and authentication policies.

In a statement on Tuesday, Facebook said a total of 95 pages and 39 accounts were “encouraging people to visit low quality websites that contain little substantive content and are full of disruptive ads.”

“These pages ranged from political to entertainment content, but all were sharing links to the same advertising click farms off Facebook,” it said.
