Zuckerberg has also alerted his team of other social media sites and especially Facebook in view of these apprehensions. Zuckerberg expressed concern over this and said that this is an ordeal for social media. He stressed that for Facebook, it is a test. He said that concrete provisions should be made to prevent the spread of misinformation on Facebook. The Facebook chief said that steps should be taken to prevent further pressure on voters. Let us know that in the US presidential election held four years ago, Facebook was accused of cheating voters.
Allegations of bias on Facebook
The matter has been mired in controversy after the US President removed a paid political advertisement from his platform before the election. The opposition has accused Facebook of weakening its election campaign. In fact, after Facebook banned a paid political aid, the Democratic Party accused Facebook of favoritism. Facebook product manager Rob Lydern said that we are investigating the matter whether some advertisements were not banned in a wrong way. Let us tell you that Facebook has tightened the rules of Political Aid this year on allegations of last election.
This Facebook advertisement claims Trump’s victory. Media Advisor Megan Klassen of Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden alleged that Facebook refused to publish his ad, mentioning Election Day, while Trump’s ad is still showing there. Megan Klassen has accused Facebook of bias by tweeting a screenshot of Trump’s ad. At the same time, Joe Biden’s Political Advisor Eric Reif said that we are trying to restore the ad removed by Facebook.
