The dangers of Facebook and Instagram troll farms to society

Follow us on our Malay and English WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Tiktok and Youtube channels.

The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) has been accused by Meta of running a troll farm that sought to promote the current government coalition and to criticise its opponents.

However, the police have refuted the allegation, claiming that they are gathering further information about it.

BFM speaks to Alexander Wong, managing editor of SoyaCincau; Dr Niki Cheong, lecturer in digital culture and society from King’s College London; and Dr Ross Tapsell, a senior lecturer with the Department of Gender, Media and Culture at the Australian National University.
