Facebook struggles with ‘Stop the Steal’ content

Facebook said it would remove content with the phrase “Stop the Steal” earlier this week, but 90 groups without the phrase but similarly promoting debunked claims of election fraud are still up, according to an analysis released Thursday by nonprofit advocacy group Avaaz.

Avaaz said the 90 groups had 166,000 total members. While the groups did not contain “stop the steal” in their names, they similarly “aggressively promoted debunked claims of voter fraud and election rigging.”

Some of the content promoted in the groups includes further calls to mobilize, according to Avaaz.
