Russia-Linked Content Reached 126 Million People in Two-Year Period — Facebook

Russia-Linked Content Reached 126 Million People in Two-Year Period — Facebook

That is far higher than the 10 million users Facebook previously estimated.

To do it, the company will need to shift the focus of its metrics.

But all three social media firms face the difficult challenge of keeping their platforms open, in order to avoid accusations of censorship and bias, and not becoming the curators of truth in society.

But Warner and his colleagues won't be able to raise those concerns with tech CEOs at the hearings.

Colin Stretch, Facebook's general counsel, plans to tell the Judiciary panel that 120 pages set up by the Russian agency posted repeatedly between January 2015 and August 2017. "We're determined to prevent it from happening again". After the election, it launched an initiative to improve detection of automated accounts and spam. "We are hiring thousands of new people to our review teams, building better tools to keep our community safe, and investing in new technologies to help locate more banned content and bad actors".

Twitter is also going to be telling the subcommittee that it has uncovered 2,752 Russia-linked accounts and more than 36,000 bots, according to The Washington Post. The company also found 18 YouTube channels likely backed by Russian agents.

At times congenial and others uncomfortable, the session essentially gave senators the opportunity to treat three of Silicon Valley's most prominent companies like a piñata, with Facebook taking the brunt of the damage, and Sen.

And this is to say nothing of the debate over "fake news", which can still easily dominate or derail debates on social media with nothing more than lies dressed up in nice-looking website.

The companies have since worked to present a proactive image.

The company added that it had found no evidence that RT had manipulated the YouTube platform or violated YouTube policy, and said RT, like all other state-sponsored media outlets, was subject to its standard rules.

Facebook promised to display more information about political ads on its site. He posed the same question of whether Twitter and Google would commit to stop running electoral ads on American political campaigns paid for by foreign actors. "This equals about four-thousandths of one percent (0.004 percent) of content in News Feed, or approximately 1 out of 23,000 pieces of content". Twitter has also said it will require election-related ads for candidates to disclose who is paying for them and how they are targeted.

― Two months later, Facebook announced Kremlin-linked accounts had indeed actually spent around $100,000 promoting 3,000 political ads "amplifying divisive social and political messages across the ideological spectrum". About 1,100 videos were uploaded from the channels, receiving a total of 309,000 U.S. views between June 2015 and November 2016.

But it wasn't a one-way exchange, said the technology companies representatives.

However, teaching Twitter's algorithms to find malicious tweeters is challenging. If the feature is enabled, it uses a microphone for 15 seconds when a person is writing a status update; it isn't used for advertising purposes, according to the company.

When Stretch tried to explain Facebook's efforts to address the issues, acknowledging that Facebook "in hindsight, should have had a broader lens" and that "signals were missed", Franken immediately shot back: "People are buying ads on your platforms with rubles..."

In Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov insisted Tuesday the US accusations of election-meddling were being made "without one piece of evidence". It was shut down after the Daily Beast pointed it out on Oct. 8. Facebook's leaders have publicly said they stand behind this crowdsourcing approach.
