The Quick Facts

  • On Thursday, September 3rd, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced a number of company initiatives that aim to protect the integrity of the 2020 U.S. election.
  • Actions include things like putting information from Facebook's "Voting Information Center" at the top of the platform, blocking new political ads during the final week of the campaign, limiting forwarding on the Messenger platform, and leveraging big investments in security systems to prevent interference from foreign governments.
  • Facebook critics were quick to point out that the list does not include meaningful actions to remove misinformation from politicians.
