Less than three years after Mark Zuckerberg dismissed as “crazy” the idea that fake news on his platform could have influenced the 2016 US election, Facebook now admits it is under siege from billions of fake accounts trying to game its systems.
Journalists & activists in the last month alone uncovered far-right networks in Spain that reached 1.7 mil people, discovered ads posted by the Trump campaign that violated FB's own rules, & revealed a hard Brexit “astroturf” campaign.
None were spotted by Facebook’s own tools.
"Facebook declined to give any examples of where it had intervened to stop people targeting European elections."
