Joe Biden Asks Facebook to Put More Effort into Protecting Fair Elections
Joe Biden has published an open letter in which he encourages Facebook to put more effort into battling disinformation in order to protect fair elections. Things that can be done on this front, according to Biden, include:
- highlighting trustworthy info more;
- not allowing candidates to use paid ads to promote misinformation, especially near the elections;
- removing info that contains misinformation and lies as quickly as possible;
Biden notes that the platform was abused to sabotage the fair elections process four years ago, and now they must take more actions not to let that happen again. Although, he says that as for right now, it looks like everything is going in the same direction.
