The United States mid-term election has not yet opened the curtain to catch bad guys.

Original title: the United States mid-term election has not yet opened the curtain to catch bad guys.

Facebook said on July 31 that it had shut down 32 accounts and Web pages, identifying them as linked to "synergistic" and "false" political acts. Facebook said the accounts were suspected of stirring up controversy before November's mid-term congressional elections, misleading users and inciting voters.

Around this incident, the Democratic and Republican parties of the United States took advantage of the occasion to play back the old tune that the United States election may be subject to external intervention.

The two parties of the United States call the "plate" directly to Russia.

According to Facebook, the accounts and web pages are created between March 2017 and May 2018 and attract more than 290 thousand users by advertising, activities and posts, according to Facebook. These "false" accounts are suspected of being involved in "coordinated" false political activities.

Facebook said the message was carefully worded and did not direct the spearhead directly to Russia, only referring to some of the activities associated with the shutdown of accounts and web pages associated with the Russian Internet Institute.

Robert Miller, the United States' special prosecutor for the "Russian Russian" investigation, prosecuted 13 Russians and 3 Russian companies in February 16th, accusing them of long-term intervention in American politics, including the U.S. presidential election in 2016, and one of the defendants in the Internet Research Institute in St Petersburg.

The two parties in the US Congress have been smicred, and members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Mark Werner, a senior member of the Democratic Party, and the chairman of the judicial committee, Chuck Grassley, have put the "board" directly on Russia.

As of July 31st, Russia did not respond. The Russian government has repeatedly denied interference in the US elections.

The "stress response" of the election in the face book

Analysts believe that the Facebook closing down account is more of a stressful stance under pressure from US political circles in the sensitive period of the upcoming U.S. mid-term elections.

Some observers point out that social media is naturally an opinion aggregation platform, which has a social function that affects others. In the mid-term elections, the cloud of "through Russia" over Washington is not scattered, and from Facebook such social media to American regulatory and security institutions, a twelve - point spirit is naturally needed.

But in any case, the US has so far lacked "real hammer" to prove Russia's participation.

The Reuters quoted two U. S. intelligence officials asking for non - public names as saying that there is no sufficient evidence at this stage that Russia is using Facebook to interfere in the U. S. election.

However, one of the officials believed that the "trick" and the "target" were quite similar to the Russian alleged "intervention" in the U.S. presidential election in 2016.

Stir fry hot spots become normal and not in technology

The use of social media to stir up controversial social topics and earn political benefits has come to the surface as Facebook has been criticized for poor supervision and user information leakage.

Social media is, however, a mirror of society. In recent years, the controversial practice of social media has gradually become the norm of American political life, and its root is not technology itself.

It is better to think about how to bridge the social splits and disagreement between the two parties of the United States and the United States rather than the closing of a false account.

On July 17, Trump said at the White House that he accepted U.S. intelligence conclusions about Russia's intervention in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. But he added, "there may be others" interfering in the election.

Trump stressed that Russia's actions did not change the election results, and said his campaign team did not "collude" with Russia.

On July 16, Russian President Vladimir Putin told a joint press conference with Trump that Russia had never interfered in the internal affairs of the United States.
