Preventing Election Interference

We are committed to securing our platforms and providing transparency during elections.

Facebook has made large investments in teams and technologies to better secure elections.

Elections have changed and so has Facebook. Since 2016 we’ve tripled the size of our teams working on safety and security issues to include more than 35,000 people, and we’ve created rapid response centers, which will operate for all of the caucuses and primaries in the US.

We’ve also made significant improvements to reduce the spread of misinformation and provide more transparency around political ads.


Impact Highlight

We detect and remove manipulation campaigns around the world and across our apps. In 2019, we removed over 50 networks engaged in coordinated inauthentic behavior, many ahead of major democratic elections.
