Maybe Faceboook wishes it had a "dislike' button after all.

The social media giant says it is suing four Chinese companies and three individuals who managed websites from 2017 to 2019 that promoted "the sale of fake accounts, likes, and followers on Facebook and Instagram," while profiting from the use of the social media platforms’ trademarks on their websites.

The four companies are 9 Xiu Network (Shenzhen) Science and Technology Company, 9 Xiu Feishu Science and Technology Company, 9 Xiufei Book Technology Co., and Home Network (Fujian) Technology Co., and the three individuals are the managers of 9 Xiu Network.

Caixin found that 9 Xiu Network had previously described itself on its website as one of Facebook’s Chinese business partners. The site cannot be accessed now.
