Malacañang on Wednesday expressed support for the decision of social media giant Facebook to shut down over 100 fake accounts allegedly linked to the Philippine military and police due to “coordinated inauthentic behavior.”

“Facebook’s recent action of taking down over 100 fake accounts is a matter we leave to the sound judgment and discretion of the popular global social networking company,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a statement.

On Tuesday, Nathaniel Gleicher, the Head of Cybersecurity Policy at Facebook, said the dummy accounts focused on criticism of communism, activism, and the opposition.

Meanwhile, Roque said the Duterte administration is “one in advocating the truth and dismissing disinformation, lies or hatred.”

He likewise hoped that Facebook, whose active monthly users stand at 2.6 billion, would “exercise prudence in all its actions to remove any doubt of bias given its power, influence and reach.”
