During the election, fake data spread on Facebook. Facebook has been criticized for a long time about the failure to stop spreading these data. Facebook’s chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg said that it is not possible to solve the problem of spreading false information to Facebook alone.
Zuckerberg made a comment on Wednesday in a forum called Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado, USA. The information was reported by The Guardian Online.
Mark Zuckerberg said, “Before the 2020 US presidential election, the question of security and intervention is on Facebook. Answering these questions is really difficult. I do not think a private institution as a society will make a final commitment to these decisions.”
There is a growing concern about spreading false information on Facebook before the election. Facebook has been subjected to a fine of US $ 500 million US federal trade commission (FTC).
FTC investigating Cambridge’s Analytica scandal Facebook has been under pressure since the ‘scandal’ incident in March last year. UK election consultancy firm Cambridge analyzed the fact that Facebook’s acquisition of data from Facebook has been known as the Cambridge Analytics scandal.
Before the lecture in the forum, the White House accused Facebook of being against Republicans. Censorship on online platforms has been called for detailed discussions.
Zuckerberg said that he encouraged the government to fix foreign policy in the privacy and elections to prevent foreign intervention.
In September 2018, Facebook was asked to take steps to prevent foreign interference in the elections.
If the election is approaching, the US government may come under more surveillance. In the meantime, US regulators are stalking on the possibility of launching Facebook’s potential virtual currency. Facebook is planning to launch the Libra name by 2020. But before the currency was launched, criticism of US Congressmen started.
