In order to protect the integrity of elections, Mark Zuckerberg, on Thursday, announced that Facebook had taken some steps. Providing Americans with authentic information and proper guidelines is what Facebook wants. But how are they actually doing it?
Facebook says that it would stop approving political posts or ads a week before the elections. Furthermore, it said that all the posts discouraging people for voting and spreading fear of transmission of Covid-19 as a result of voting would be removed; however, an authoritative link would be attached with the posts regarding Covid-19 transmission and details along with the discouraging posts.
In addition to these, anyone who would post false results before the official reveal and declaration of the results will get a label attached, which will automatically redirect the users to the official and authentic results by the National Election Pool and Reuters.
Facebook is trying its best to make the elections extremely convenient and peaceful for the entire nation; hence, releasing new updates and relevant features from time to time.
