Social media platforms combating misinformation ahead of presidential election

“Carl Szabo with NetChoice says that’s just one of the steps major social media platforms are taking to combat misinformation.

‘They’re actually not prohibiting all ads or political ads in the last week. What they’re doing is, they’re saying you cannot have new political ads appearing,” Szabo said. “Within six months alone, they’ve taken action on over 3 billion fake accounts and bots and have taken them down.’

Szabo says Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are attempting to clean up their platforms for the sake of consumers and the election.

‘We just need to be vigilant, we need to be aggressive,’ he said.”
