Facebook Creates War Room to Combat Fake News Ahead of September Elections

Samidh Chakrabarti, Facebook's Director of Product Management, Civic Engagement, announced that the social network had created a physical elections war room designed to help them address fake news in real time.

During September 2018, both the USA and Brazil will organize elections, and Menlo Park decided to gather all their subject-matter experts in the same location to be able to react as quick as possible to any detected issues as fast as possible.

According to Chakrabarti post on Facebook's newsroom, the experts present in their elections war room have expertise in a wide range of fields from threat intelligence, data science, and software engineering to research, community operations and legal teams.

Facebook's war room crew is supported by around 20,000 people who work on identifying and blocking security and safety issues all across the social network.
