Want a whole new magnetic troll attractant? Check out this article on right-wing troll kiddies (really, 4chan kiddies) hijacking liberal and progressive Facebook groups – sadly, rather successfully (several groups I had been in, had fallen to them).

The noteworthy part here is how incompetent Facebook is at responding to reports of clearly and obviously fake profiles. Doesn’t matter if the profile has a different name in the URL than it calls itself, and is part of a slew of near identical profiles – report it, and you get the usual message back that Facebook reviewers see nothing wrong with the profile.

Members of the Alt-Right group Catena Mafia are using digital brownshirt tactics to infiltrate groups and hijack control of them on Facebook. Facebook is failing to respond.
