Social media giant Facebook has taken down a network of accounts from Russia that had links with a marketing firm that propagated anti-vaccine content. "The assumption was the influencers wouldn't do any of their own homework, but two did," Facebook global threat intelligence lead Ben Nimmo said. "It's really a warning, be careful when someone is trying to spoon-feed you a story. Do your own research," he further said.
