Facebook tightens policies against voter suppression


In the run-up to the US 2018 mid-term elections, Facebook announced it would broaden the company's policies against voter suppression by banning misrepresentations about how to vote and whether a vote will be counted. The company also introduced a reporting option to allow users to report incorrect information and dedicated reporting channels for state election authorities. The company noted it was getting better at detecting and removing fake accounts and increasing transparency about campaigning ads.
