U.S. President Donald Trump and other conservatives accused Twitter, Facebook and Google of allegedly boiling traditionalist views; he said that he would consider working with Democrats to regulate social media companies

On Wednesday, Trump urged caution in efforts to regulate social media companies. He said:

Believe it or not, I’m one that really likes free speech. A lot of people don’t understand that, but I am a big believer. And when you start regulating, a lot of bad things can happen.

In a question that either he would consider working with the Democrats to regulate social media companies he said:

I would do that, yeah. I would look at that.

His officials made various efforts towards cutting environmental and financial rules. Last month, Trump suggested that Twitter was biased against him and accused the company of removing many of his followers. He said that the company had stifled growth to a point where it is obvious to all.

In response, Twitter said that it was due to their recent move to delete millions of suspicious accounts who were aiming to do misinformation campaigns to influence voters in the 2018 U.S. presidential and other elections.

Despite that, Trump is a keen user of Twitter which lets him bypass TC news and newspapers in order to communicate directly with the supporters.

After a good election day, Facebook executives tried to let up but there’s no room for them to have a sigh of relief.

Social media companies tried to clear up their services since last two years in order to deliver the good ones only. However, the calm on these platforms after Election Day signifies that chaos of election campaigns can be controlled.

But not forgetting that this year’s midterm elections revealed how Facebook is delicate towards such burning cycles.

With the constant vigilance from law enforcement agencies, academic researchers, and digital security experts, the Election Day was just a disaster-free day.

It wasn’t just a campaign, but constantly breaking a sweat of dozens of staff members working round-the-clock shifts. A massive number of journalists and fact checker willing to police the platform for false news stories and frauds so these can be controlled before going viral.

Looking for the unending list of misinformation on Facebook was like a piece of cake. There are doctored photos, disprovable lies, and hoaxers and conspiracy theorists, who used the platform to spin falsehoods and stir up tribal anger.

In a recent study by Oxford Internet Institute, an Oxford University department found that 25 percent of all election-related content shared on Facebook and Twitter during the midterm election season could be classified as junk news. Mr. Reynolds; a Facebook spokesman; said

Over the last two years, we’ve worked hard to prevent misuse of Facebook during elections…Our teams worked round the clock during the midterms to reduce the spread of misinformation thwart efforts to discourage people from voting and deal with issues of hate on our services.

Last month, a viral post falsely racked up nearly 80,000 shares, more than any post by The New York Times, The Washington Post, or Fox News during the entire month of October.

The anti-abuse system the Facebook put in place after the 2016 election has not gone smoothly. The main steps including the one which Facebook took to prevent Russian style influence campaigns were to force political advertisers to verify their identities. But Paid for By disclaimers on paid ads allowed authorized advertisers to publish their desired content.

Facebook has shield itself from the bad actors trying to exploit its services. Since the Election Day itself had been a success, but the company still had plenty to worry about. Michael Posner, a professor of ethics and finance at New York University’s Stern School of Business said:

I give them better marks for being on the case. But it’s yet to be seen how effective it’s going to be. There’s an awful lot of disinformation still out there.

As Facebook cracked down the domestic disinformation networks, banning particularly bad actors, and hiring more people to deal with emerging threats, it has covered a great milestone to give a protected platform. It has shown responsibly a wider role in the overall Election Day campaign, but it is accountable for the flood of lies and manipulation left after it.
