Mark Zuckerberg says he is “sure someone’s trying” to use Facebook to meddle with the US midterm elections.
In other words: A possible repeat of the Russian interference in the 2016 election that rattled Americans and spawned government inquiries.
“I’m sure someone’s trying,” Zuckerberg said when CNN’s Laurie Segall asked him about the possibility of meddling happening right now.
I’m sure that there’s v2, version two, of whatever the Russian effort was in 2016, I’m sure they’re working on that,” he said. “And there are going to be some new tactics that we need to make sure that we observe and get in front of.”
Zuckerberg said Facebook executives “have some sense of the different things that we need to get in front of.” #beepraizblog
