TechCrunch: Meta just erased a Proud Boys network stealthily organizing on Facebook and Instagram. “Meta disclosed Thursday that it recently removed a network of activity affiliated with the violent extremist group after it detected members making inroads back onto Facebook and Instagram. The company says it removed around 480 Proud Boys accounts, pages, groups and events through a strategy it calls ‘strategic network disruption’ — basically neutralizing a network of activity linked to a banned group in a targeted, simultaneous sweep.”
