  • Following reporting of the findings by the Tech Transparency Project, Facebook shut down multiple groups affiliated with Boogaloo Boi Militia Movement.
  • The Facebook groups that were shut down included groups such as “Bigaloo Bogaloo,” which was recently highlighted in the news and by the report. Overall, the groups boasted a combined membership of over 20,000.
  • Prior to their shutdown, the Clarion Intelligence Network infiltrated these groups and was able to identify and report over 150 potential violent extremists to our law enforcement partners.
