Meta invests a huge amount of effort and resources to protect elections online — not just during election periods but at all times.
We have around 40,000 people working on safety and security for global elections, with more than $20 billion invested in teams and technology in this area since 2016.
We stop millions of fake accounts every day before they are even created.
Our security teams investigate and take down coordinated networks of accounts, Pages, and groups that try to manipulate public debate.
We partner with governments, law enforcement agencies, nonprofits, civil rights groups, and other tech companies to stop emerging threats.
We work with nearly 100 partners across 60 languages to fact-check what people post and provide context on misleading content.
We remove content that attempts to interfere with voting, such as incorrect voting information, and we remove calls for electoral violence.
We reduce the distribution of false news about elections so fewer people see it.
We require all political advertisers to verify their identify through an authorization process before they can buy ads.
We add “Paid for by” disclaimers to political and issue ads, and provide the owner and locations for political Pages and Groups.
We provide an Ads Library—a searchable database of all political and issue ads from the last 7 years—so you can see exactly what candidates are saying, who they’re targeting, and who paid for it.
On Facebook and Instagram, through in-app notifications, we’re continuing to connect people with details about voter registration and elections.
Our Voting Information Center continues to be live on Facebook.
