“If a candidate or party claims victory too early before major news media have chosen the winner, we will add more specific information,” Facebook executives said in a statement. votes have been counted, and the company will also ban messages suggesting that voters and polling station employees should be intimidated.
Facebook previously announced that it would ban ads claiming that voting fraud is widespread, contradicting the validity of the results of the upcoming US presidential election, or disputing voting methods.
Counting votes in the United States is expected to take several days this year. That’s because more Americans than ever before will be voting through the mail because of the corona epidemic.
