Facebook has announced the launching of a”Voting Information Center” before the US Presidential elections in November.
The tool will guide users toward official info about the best way best to enroll to vote, in addition to up-to-date info regarding the election from confirmed sources.
The heart will also give users a guide about the best way best to enroll for mail-in grad – a system that’s been heavily criticized by US President Donald Trump lately.
Facebook has confronted backlash for not fact-checking President Trump’s articles which have implied mail-in ballots would result in a”deceptive” and”rigged” election.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg reported that the purpose of the new initiative is to help users”find authoritative advice straight from election officials”.
