Facebook vs. the Democrats?

Deputy Press secretary and adviser to the US president-elect, Bill Russo, has reportedly posted and swiftly deleted a tweet suggesting that his incoming administration may be on track for a hostile relationship with Facebook.
Russo has reportedly accused the company of allowing the spread of “debunked conspiracy theories”

Our democracy is on the line.

We need answers” tweeted bill Russo complaining that the company was too slow to delete pro-trump “Stop The Steal” groups, to which Facebook responded to have potentially introduced “new products and policies” including a probation measure to handle problems in its groups by tasking the administrators of some politically themed pages to check that all members post within the groups follow Facebook’s rules.

The firm stated that they built the largest third-party fact-checking network of any platform and they remain actively focused on claims about the election, including conspiracy theories. The firm further added that they changed their products to ensure fewer people see false information and are made aware of it when they do, and highlighted reliable information related to the election where nearly everyone on Facebook and Instagram saw that President Biden was the projected winner.

Though the company has taken effective measures Russo is still not satisfied and has repeatedly bashed Facebook and President Biden has reportedly decided to not comment on the issue as to not escalate things. Mr. Zuckerberg is to face questions about all this next week when he testifies to Senate about Facebook’s handling of the election.
