Facebook to set up UK operations center during elections

Facebook Inc. will put up a dedicated operations center in the U.K. during the next elections to battle misinformation and fake news stories, Facebook Vice President of Policy Solutions Richard Allan wrote in London's The Daily Telegraph.

The move is intended to assist the company in removing content that breaks its rules and in responding to threatening content.

"We have learned the lessons of 2016," when Russia used Facebook to spread division and misinformation in the U.S. Presidential election, Allan said, adding that the company has built stronger defenses to stop people from using its platforms to interfere with elections.

One of such strategies include the creation of a dedicated reporting channel that will allow members of the parliament in the U.K. to flag any abusive and threatening content directly to the company's teams. The said channel will be further extended to all candidates during the election period, the Facebook executive said.

Beginning next week, Facebook will also be widening the scope of its tighter advertisement measures to include ads about social issues, such as immigration, health and the environment. The stricter advertisement measure, which originally focused on political ads, required advertisers to submit documents that prove identity and location.

To-date, Facebook has more than 35,000 people working on its platform's safety and security, Allan revealed.
