Facebook Vows Cooperation with Germany on Combating Election Meddling

In a speech at a business conference in Munich last Sunday, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said that the her company will be working closely with the German Federal Office for Information and a number of other companies to fight election interference.


Sandberg added that the initiative, which will “help guide policy making in Germany and across the EU on election interference.” will build on work the company did with the German government during federal elections in 2017.


The initiative will also require political advertisers to disclose their identity before buying an ad, similar to requirements put in place in the United States, United Kingdom, and Brazil in 2018.
