Facebook Takes Steps Against Misinformation Ahead Of Election
With less than 90 days until the 2020 election, Facebook is stepping up its efforts to combat misinformation on its platform.
Starting this week, Facebook will be adding labels to user posts about voting – labels that link to Facebook’s new ‘voter information hub’ that lists election resources and news.
Earlier this year, Facebook launched a similar information hub about COVID-19 – which the company says has been viewed billions of times.
A Facebook official says the company wants “to make sure people have easy access to the latest, authoritative information and news on and after Election Night”.
