TAG Bulletin: Q3 2020

This bulletin includes coordinated influence operation campaigns
terminated on our platforms in July of 2020. We will continue to
update this bulletin with data from Q3 as it becomes available. It
was last updated on�Sept 15, 2020.

July

We terminated 1 advertising account and 7 YouTube channels as
part of our actions against a coordinated influence operation
linked to Ecuador. The campaign was linked to the PR firm
Estraterra, and posted content in Spanish about former Ecuador
government employees. These findings are consistent with similar
findings reported by Facebook.

We terminated 299 YouTube channels as part of our ongoing
investigation into coordinated influence operations linked to
China. These channels mostly uploaded spammy content in Chinese
about music, entertainment, and lifestyle. A very small subset
uploaded content in Chinese about COVID-19 and current events in
Hong Kong. These findings are consistent with our previous reports
in the Q2
TAG bulletin
