Mark Zuckerberg Responds to Allegations Facebook Swayed Presidential Election

Facebook has come under fire for allowing the publication of false articles – which many are saying altered the result of the 2016 Presidential Election.

In his viral post-election episode, John Oliver did a whole segment about fake news sites posting false information to Facebook. The dispersal of that news, John alleged, could have altered how people voted for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

Mark Zuckerberg took to Facebook to address the concerns.

“Of all the content on Facebook, more than 99% of what people see is authentic. Only a very small amount is fake news and hoaxes. The hoaxes that do exist are not limited to one partisan view, or even to politics. Overall, this makes it extremely unlikely hoaxes changed the outcome of this election in one direction or the other,” Mark wrote.

“That said, we don’t want any hoaxes on Facebook. Our goal is to show people the content they will find most meaningful, and people want accurate news. We have already launched work enabling our community to flag hoaxes and fake news, and there is more we can do here. We have made progress, and we will continue to work on this to improve further,” he added. Read his whole update below…

Mark Zuckerberg & Wife Priscilla Tour Rome After Meeting Pope Francis

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla step out to check out the sights on Monday (August 29) in Rome, Italy.

“We had a great time in Rome and wrapped with a visit to the Colosseum last night. Thanks to everyone we met and who has been so welcoming. We’ll be back soon!” Mark wrote on Facebook.

That same day, the married couple met the Pope!

“Priscilla and I had the honor of meeting Pope Francis at the Vatican. We told him how much we admire his message of mercy and tenderness, and how he’s found new ways to communicate with people of every faith around the world. We also discussed the importance of connecting people, especially in parts of the world without internet access. We gave him a model of Aquila, our solar-powered aircraft that will beam internet connectivity to places that don’t have it. And we shared our work with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to help people around the world,” Mark said. “It was a meeting we’ll never forget. You can feel his warmth and kindness, and how deeply he cares about helping people.”

Mark Zuckerberg Defends 'Black Lives Matter' in Memo to Facebook Employees

Mark Zuckerberg poses for photos with his wife Priscilla Chan while attending the Axel Springer Award presentation on Thursday (February 25) in Berlin, Germany.

The 31-year-old Facebook founder was in Barcelona, Spain earlier in the week to deliver a keynote conference at the World Mobile Congress.

Mark sent a private memo to Facebook employees this week after an employee crossed out “black lives matter” on the company’s signature wall and replaced it with “all lives matter.”

“Despite my clear communication at Q&A last week that this was unacceptable, and messages from several other leaders from across the company, this has happened again,” Mark wrote in his memo (via Gizmodo). “I was already very disappointed by this disrespectful behavior before, but after my communication I now consider this malicious as well.”

“There are specific issues affecting the black community in the United States, coming from a history of oppression and racism. ‘Black lives matter’ doesn’t mean other lives don’t — it’s simply asking that the black community also achieves the justice they deserve,” Mark added. “We’ve never had rules around what people can write on our walls. We expect everybody to treat each other with respect.”
