Facebook has created a tool that will allow users to see if they liked or followed any accounts linked to Russia's "Internet Research Agency" that intentionally spread misinformation leading up to the 2016 USA presidential election. The tool will possibly won't tell whether you saw or shared posts from the accounts, but will only indicate whether you have been engaged with them directly.
Facebook and Instagram users will be able to check to see if they liked or followed any of the pages created by the Russian troll farm.
Facebook is trying to alert some U.S. users that they fell victim to Russian propaganda during the 2016 presidential election.

This tool will be available by the end of 2017 and will cover the time period between January 2015 and August 2017, basically the entire duration of the US presidential election season.
