Investigation uncovers no coordinated Russian-linked activity in addition to the 71p of ad spend reported in December
Facebook has found no further evidence of Russian propaganda activity around the EU referendum, after being forced by MPs to carry out a more detailed investigation than it initially performed.
In December, Facebook reported just $0.97 (71p) was spent by Russian-based actors on ads that targeted British users in the period leading up to the referendum. It also said that that money was apparently the result of misfires from the large Russian campaign targeting the US election.
