As the fake news and political interference are increasing on social media platforms, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has asked for some more time to fix his network which has two billion users.
Recently, on a post Zuckerberg said that “Facebook started on the platform sanitising project in 2017 and “even this work will extend through 2019, I do expect us to end this year on a significantly better trajectory than when we entered it”.
Mark wrote that, “My personal challenge for 2018 has been to fix the most important issues facing Facebook — whether that’s defending against election interference by nation states, protecting our community from abuse and harm, or making sure people have control of their information,”
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey faced the committee which is examining the Russian Interference to publicly hold Facebook and Twitter answerable for allowing Russian operatives on their platform. Zuckerberg added that “I’m spending a lot of time on these issues, and as the year winds down I’m going to write a series of notes outlining how I’m thinking about them and the steps we’re taking to address them,”
As the US mid-terms and Brazilian presidential elections are coming, Facebook will take steps to prevent election interference on Facebook.He pointed that “I’ll write about privacy, encryption and business models, and then about content governance and enforcement as well in the coming months,”
