Facebook Comes Up With An Unambitious Plan Against Disinformation
Mark Zuckerberg has revealed Facebook’s measures against disinformation around the US presidential election. They do not change the current situation much.
In November, the Americans will go to the polls to elect, among other things, the next president of the US.
It is a ballot box in which there is already talk of Russian interference, and in which one of the candidates has indicated on several occasions that he has little faith in the system.
It is expected that the impact of social media such as Facebook this time, just like in 2016, can be particularly significant.
Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg previously had to answer to the US Congress for that Russian interference, because his company’s services included political advertisements around the 2016 elections that were funded by foreign organizations.
This year, in a blog post, he outlined a series of steps to “protect democracy,” he says.
