Facebook To Tackle Interference With 2020 Census

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Facebook says it will clamp down on efforts to use its services to interfere with the 2020 U.S. census.

That includes the posting of misleading information about when and how to participate, who can participate and the consequences of taking part.

The social media giant says it is also prohibiting advertisements that discourage people from taking part in the census.

Facebook has been trying to clamp down on misinformation on its platform ahead of next year’s U.S. presidential elections.

It says it will begin enforcing the census policy in January using both technology and humans to spot violations.
