The New York Post: Facebook says it’s taking steps to ban misinformation about 2020 census

Facebook plans to treat the 2020 U.S. Census “like an election” — with “people, policies, and technology in place” to protect against interference, the company said Sunday.

“We’re building a team dedicated to these census efforts and introducing a new policy in the fall that protects against misinformation related to the census,” wrote Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg in a blog post. “We’ll enforce it using artificial intelligence. We’ll also partner with nonpartisan groups to help promote proactive participation in the census.”

The social-media giant FB, +0.23% said it will now look to remove false census information and election data — such as inaccurate details about polling places and fake descriptions of how the census process works — which would have been allowed to remain up in years past.
