A total of 2.2 million ads on Facebook and Instagram have been rejected and 120,000 posts withdrawn for attempting to obstruct the vote in the upcoming US presidential election, Facebook vice president Nick Clegg said.
In addition, warnings have been issued of 150 million instances of false news posted online, the former British Deputy Prime Minister told the Sunday Journal on Sunday.
Facebook has stepped up its efforts to avoid a repeat of the events that led to the 2016 US presidential election, won by Donald Trump, when its network was used for voter manipulation attempts, led from Russia.
There were similar issues before the 2016 British referendum on leaving the European Union.
Thirty-five thousand employees keep our platforms secure and contribute to the elections, said Clegg, vice president of global affairs and communications at Facebook.
We have forged partnerships with 70 specialized media, including five in France, on information verification, he added. AFP is one of these partners.
Clegg added that the company is also using artificial intelligence which has made it possible to delete billions of posts and fake accounts, before they were even reported by users.
Facebook also stores all ads and information about their funding and provenance for seven years to ensure transparency, he said.
In 2016, while still Deputy Prime Minister, Clegg complained to the Journal du Dimanche that Facebook had not identified or removed a single foreign network intervening in the US election.
Trump on Wednesday berated Facebook and Twitter for blocking links to a New York Post article purporting to expose the corrupt transactions of rival Joe Biden and son Hunter in Ukraine.
A day earlier, Facebook announced a ban on ads that discourage people from getting vaccinated, in light of the coronavirus pandemic which the social media giant said has highlighted the importance of preventative behaviors in health.
