The network, they said, shared a range of political and entertainment content, but were all sharing links to the same “advertising click farms” outside of Facebook.

Facebook, in a press release, identified 12 of the 134 total pages and accounts that were taken down.

We list down the false or misleading articles shared by these accounts and pages, which have been fact-checked by Rappler. These false stories had political content, particularly about former Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, Senator Leila de Lima, former senator Bongbong Marcos, and the accomplishments of President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration.
