How We’re Tackling Misinformation Across Our Apps

“Let’s start with fake accounts. We take a hard line against this activity and block millions of fake accounts each day, most of them at the time of creation. Between October and December of 2020, we disabled more than 1.3 billion of them. We also investigate and take down covert foreign and domestic influence operations that rely on fake accounts. Over the past three years, we’ve removed over 100 networks of coordinated inauthentic behavior (CIB) from our platform and keep the public informed about our efforts through our monthly CIB reports. ”

“Our Community Guidelines prohibit spam, scams, or other manipulated media, coordinated influence operations, and any content that seeks to incite violence. Since September, we’ve terminated over 8000 channels and thousands of harmful and misleading elections-related videos for violating our existing policies. Over 77% of those removed videos were taken down before they had 100 views. ” […]
Yesterday was the safe harbor deadline for the U.S. Presidential election and enough states have certified their election results to determine a President-elect. Given that, we will start removing any piece of content uploaded today (or anytime after) that misleads people by alleging that widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential election, in line with our approach towards historical U.S. Presidential elections.

“We’re working diligently to protect the integrity of our platform as the election cycle continues. We’re removing election misinformation as it’s identified – proactively through automated technology and human investigations, and reactively via reports from our users and partners. This includes, for example, false claims about voter fraud. We continue to reduce discoverability of content that prematurely declares victory in a race, and we apply a banner on such content that directs users to the AP for official and real-time race results. We’re also redirecting searches for terms and hashtags related to misinformation to our Community Guidelines to help people understand what is and isn’t allowed on TikTok.”

“WhatsApp affiche une icône spéciale sur les messages transférés de nombreuses fois qui sont partagés dans les discussions. Cette icône à deux flèches indique aux utilisateurs qu’ils reçoivent un message qui n’a pas été composé par un contact proche.
Aujourd’hui, nous proposons une fonctionnalité pratique pour vérifier le contenu de ces messages.”

“A Facebook spokesman said: “We don’t believe that it’s an appropriate role for us to referee political debates. Nor do we think it would be appropriate to prevent a politician’s speech from reaching its audience and being subject to public debate and scrutiny.”
Facebook’s decision comes as the rival service TikTok takes the opposite stance. In a blogpost, the social network, whose reported 500 million users would make it the largest in the world not owned by Facebook, made clear it would not be hosting any political adverts.”

“Les infox perturbent deux fois notre vie démocratique. D’abord, parce qu’elles diffusent largement et rapidement des informations erronées, diffamatoires ou absurdes, dont les conséquences durables sur la formation de l’opinion des citoyens sont encore méconnues. Ensuite, parce que, en tant que machines à clics, elles attirent une part non négligeable des revenus publicitaires et menacent la viabilité économique des médias traditionnels.”

“Les « fake news » ou les « faits alternatifs », en proposant des types de discours qui ne correspondent pas à des faits avérés, affaiblissent la portée émancipatrice du discours relativiste. Aujourd’hui, le discours relativiste, qui a été un discours progressiste, se retrouve associé à des positions qui ne le sont pas du tout. Des historiens, comme l’Italien Carlo Ginzburg dans les années 1990, nous avaient déjà alertés : comment faire, demandait Ginzburg, pour poser des limites au scepticisme relativiste ? Donald Trump, poussant jusqu’à son extrémité un type de discours réactionnaire qualifiable de relativiste, produit ainsi un grand trouble.” – Arnaud Esquerre.
