Facebook today announced that Robert M. Kimmitt, former Deputy Secretary of the Treasury and U.S. Ambassador to Germany, has been appointed to the company’s Board of Directors as lead independent director, effective immediately. Additionally, Jeffrey D. Zients, CEO of The Cranemere Group Limited, has informed the company that he will not stand for re-election to Facebook’s Board of Directors at the company’s 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Zients will continue to serve as a director until the date of the Annual Meeting.

Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, said, “The lead independent director is an important role for us and we’ve been looking for a leader who can bring significant oversight and governance experience. I’m confident Bob is going to make our board and our company better and I’m looking forward to working with him as we continue to build important social infrastructure to bring the world closer together.”?

“I am excited to take on this leadership role on Facebook’s board, as the company continues to improve the ways technology and innovation can bring us together. This moment in particular is an incredibly important time to help people connect. I look forward to working with Mark, Sheryl, and the rest of the board to further the company’s mission,” said Kimmitt.?

Ambassador Kimmitt has held a wide variety of senior positions within international business, finance, and public policy. Kimmitt served as Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Treasury (2005 – 2009), where he was involved in all aspects of the Treasury’s policies and played a key leadership role on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). Kimmitt’s public service career also included assignments as U.S. Ambassador to Germany (1991 – 1993), Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs (1989 – 1991), General Counsel to the Treasury Department (1985 – 1987), and National Security Council Executive Secretary and General Counsel at the White House (1983 – 1985). Kimmitt is a decorated combat veteran of the Vietnam War and attained the rank of Major General in the Army Reserve.

In addition to government service, Ambassador Kimmitt held roles as Executive Vice President of Global Public Policy at Time Warner (2001 – 2005), Vice Chairman and President of Commerce One (2000 – 2001), partner at Wilmer Cutler & Pickering (1997 – 2000), and managing director at Lehman Brothers (1993 – 1997). He currently serves as Senior International Counsel at WilmerHale.

On Zients stepping down from the Facebook board, Zuckerberg said, “Jeff has been an invaluable source of guidance and advice. We’re very grateful to him for his contribution and I wish him all the best.”?

Zients said, “Facebook is one of the most significant companies in the global economy and this is a particularly important time for people to feel connected to each other. I wish Mark, the leadership team, and the dedicated Facebook employees the best as they continue to make progress and move forward. I have decided to step down from the board in order to devote more time to my business and other professional engagements.”

Summary

In response to the coronavirus outbreak, Facebook is supporting the global public health community’s work to keep people safe and informed. Since the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a public health emergency in January, we’ve taken steps to make sure everyone has access to accurate information, stop misinformation and harmful content, and support global health experts, local governments, businesses and communities.

Here’s an overview of our work and shortcuts to more information. We’ll continue to add to this post as we announce updates.

1. Making sure everyone has accurate information

2. Stopping misinformation and harmful content

3.?Supporting global health experts and relief efforts

4.?Supporting local governments, communities and businesses?


Update on March 26, 2020 at 1:00PM PT:

Today, we’re launching the Messenger Coronavirus Community Hub with tips and resources to keep people connected to their friends, family, colleagues and community, and prevent the spread of misinformation. It also includes advice on how to recognize and avoid scams and misinformation online. Read more about how you can use Messenger to stay connected and informed during this time. ?


Update on March 26, 2020 at 9:00AM PT:

Today we’re launching our digital literacy program, Get Digital, to provide lessons and resources to help young people develop the competencies and skills they need to more safely navigate the internet. These resources are designed to be used by educators and families both in the classroom and at home, but they’ve become even more important as young people spend more time on their devices while at home during the COVID-19 outbreak.?

Get Digital will help young people learn how to:

  • Stay safe online and protect their personal information
  • Navigate content and information, and evaluate the trustworthiness of a source
  • Build positive and inclusive communities online by being kind and respecting others
  • Manage their health and wellbeing by learning how to monitor emotions and develop healthy habits for when to use technology

It will also help them discover how technology can be used for civic and political engagement. And it can help them develop digital skills, such as understanding algorithms, and explore programming and more to help prepare them for future careers in technology.

We’re partnering with UNESCO, the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), National PTA, and EVERFI to distribute our new digital literacy tools to parents and educators around the world. Lessons are drawn from the Youth and Media team at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, which has made them freely available worldwide under a Creative Commons license, and the Greater Good Science Center.


Update on March 26, 2020 at 7:15AM PT:

Remote work can be challenging whether you’re balancing caregiving and work, trying to lead a dispersed team, or adjusting to a new routine and responsibilities. That’s why we created an online resource with tips to help our global team stay connected, be productive and do their best work, wherever they’re working. We’re sharing it publicly today in case it’s helpful to others as many adjust to working remotely during this challenging time. Check out our remote work resources.


Update on March 25, 2020 at 9:57AM PT:

Today we shared an overview of how we’re connecting people to reliable information and taking aggressive steps to combat COVID-19 misinformation across our apps.


Update on March 24, 2020 at 1:30PM PT:

As more people around the world are physically distancing themselves from others, we’ve seen people using our apps more than ever. Today, we shared some data to give context on the load we’re managing. Our apps were built to withstand spikes, but the usage growth from COVID-19 is unprecedented across the industry. We’re monitoring usage patterns carefully, making our systems more efficient and adding capacity when needed, and we’re doing everything we can to keep our apps stable and reliable during this time.


Update on March 24, 2020 at 6:00AM PT:

Today we announced updates to help people stay informed, safe and connected on Instagram during this challenging time. These include:

  • Adding more educational resources in Instagram Search
  • Adding stickers to promote accurate information
  • Removing COVID-19 content and accounts from recommendations, unless posted by a credible health organization
  • Rolling out the donation sticker in more countries and helping people find relevant nonprofits to support
  • Creating a shared story to help those practicing social distancing connect with others, using a “Stay Home” sticker
  • Launching a new way to browse Instagram with friends over video chat

Update on March 23, 2020 at 12:01AM PT:

Today we’re announcing two initiatives to help government health organizations in their response to the coronavirus outbreak using Messenger.?

  1. We’re connecting government health organizations and UN health agencies with our developer partners who will help them use Messenger most effectively to scale their response to COVID-19. Our developer partners will provide their services for free, showing these critical organizations how to use Messenger to share timely information with local communities and speed up their replies to commonly asked questions with tools like automated responses.?
  2. We’re also starting an online hackathon and inviting developers to build messaging solutions that address issues related to the coronavirus such as social distancing and access to accurate information. Participants will receive unique access to Messenger tools and content as well as educational materials from Facebook to support their innovation. And the winners will get mentoring from Facebook engineers to help make their idea a reality.?

Read more about how we’re leveraging Messenger’s reach, tools and technology to help people stay connected and informed during this time.


Update on March 20, 2020 at 2:45PM PT:

Today we launched the World Health Organization’s Health Alert on WhatsApp. The WHO Health Alert is free to use and will answer common questions about COVID-19. It provides timely, reliable information about how to prevent the spread of the coronavirus as well as travel advice, coronavirus myth debunking and more. To contact the WHO Health Alert, save the number +41 79 893 1892 in your phone contacts and then text the word ‘Hi’ in a WhatsApp message to get started. The service is initially launching in English but will be available in all six United Nations languages (English, Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish) within the coming weeks.


Update on March 19, 2020 at 7:22PM PT:

We recently announced that we’re temporarily sending content reviewers home. We want to make sure our platform remains a safe place for people to connect during this time, but with a reduced and remote workforce, below are some ways our content review processes will be impacted.??

Policy Enforcement: We will continue to enforce our policies and prioritize preventing and disrupting harm across our platform. We are conducting human rights due diligence, looking at potential risks, and putting in place contingency plans that both prioritize the safety of our content reviewers and support the integrity of our platform. As Mark discussed on a press call, for example, we have shifted certain content review work to full time employees and are focusing on areas including child safety, terrorism, suicide and self-injury, and harmful content related to COVID-19.?

Some contract reviewers will work from home, but with a reduced and remote workforce, we will now rely more on our automated systems to detect and remove violating content and disable accounts.?As a result, we expect to make more mistakes, and reviews will take longer than normal, but we will continue to monitor how our systems are performing and make adjustments. In addition, reviewing content can be challenging, and working from home presents new obstacles in providing support to our teams, but we’re working to ensure our content reviewers have the resources and help they need during this time.

User Reports: When people report content to us that they believe violates our policies, they will see a new message letting them know that we have fewer content reviewers available and will prioritize reported content that has the greatest potential ?to harm our community. This means some reports will not be reviewed as quickly as they used to be and we will not get to some reports at all.

Appeals: Normally when we remove content, we offer the person who posted it the option to request that we review the content again if they think we made a mistake. Now, given our reduced workforce, we’ll give people the option to tell us that they disagree with our decision and we’ll monitor that feedback to improve our accuracy, but we likely won’t review content a second time.

We’re working hard to minimize any impact on people as they use Facebook, Instagram and Messenger during this time, but we know some may feel this impact either when reporting content to us or appealing content we remove.?

We’re doing everything we can to keep our global teams and the community that uses our apps safe while continuing to provide the services people and businesses rely on.?


Update on March 19, 2020 at 4:12PM PT:

Mark Zuckerberg is live with Dr. Anthony Fauci, America’s top infectious disease expert involved in leading our government’s response to COVID-19. They’ll discuss how we can all help fight the spread of the coronavirus and what governments are doing to respond to the pandemic.


Update on March 19, 2020 at 2:18PM PT:

In addition to masks, we’re now also banning ads and commerce listings for hand sanitizer, surface disinfecting wipes and COVID-19 testing kits. And if we see people selling these products in organic posts on Facebook or Instagram, we’ll remove them.


Update on March 18, 2020 at 6:01PM PT:

As we announced on Monday,?we’re working with our partners to send home all contract workers who perform content review, until further notice. Since this includes people who review ads and monetized content, we wanted to share more about what this means for advertisers, publishers and creators that use our tools.?

For Advertisers

We use a combination of people and technology to review ads on Facebook and Instagram, and our automated systems already play a big role in that process. Now with a reduced and remote workforce, we’re relying on automated technology even more. This may mean:?

  • Delayed review for ads and commerce listings?
  • An increase in ads being incorrectly disapproved
  • Delayed or reduced appeals
  • More limited availability of Facebook in-stream ads and lower delivery

For Content Creators and Publishers

All monetized content goes through brand safety reviews. This includes Instant Articles and videos with in-stream ads. Since our ability to review new content is now limited, we won’t be able to approve all content for monetization. We’re working on how to support partners at this time.?

As this situation continues to evolve, we may need to make further changes to our systems. While we’re working to minimize disruptions for businesses and partners, we will inevitably make mistakes. We will do our best to address any issues as quickly as we can and continue to provide updates.


Update on March 18, 2020 at 2:30PM PT:

This morning on a press call, Mark Zuckerberg shared how we’re supporting people and businesses affected by the coronavirus outbreak and how we’re working with health authorities to make sure everyone can access accurate information. He also announced a new Coronavirus Information Center on Facebook to help people find information and tips, and he shared how we’re giving governments and emergency services around the world free access to Workplace. Read the full transcript from his press call.?


Update on March 18, 2020 at 11:12AM PT:

Starting today, we’re offering Workplace Advanced to government agencies and emergency services free of charge for 12 months. These organizations play a vital role during the coronavirus outbreak, whether it’s acting as first responders or coordinating public information. Workplace can help inform and connect their employees, allowing them to share critical information in real-time and enabling leadership to reach employees via live videos, posts and more. Read more about how we’re supporting emergency services and government organizations during this time.

Update on March 18, 2020 at 11:06AM PT:

Today we’re announcing the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information Center, featured at the top of News Feed, to provide a central place for people to get the latest news and information as well as resources and tips to stay healthy and support their family and community.?

It includes real-time updates from national health authorities and global organizations such as the World Health Organization, as well as helpful articles, videos and posts about social distancing and preventing the spread of COVID-19.

People can also follow the Coronavirus Information Center to receive updates from health authorities directly in their News Feed. And starting in the US, people will see features to help them connect with local groups and ask for or offer help within their community.

We’re rolling out the information center in Italy, France, Germany, Spain, the UK and the US within the next 24 hours, and we’ll expand it to more countries in the coming days.?

Update on March 18, 2020 at 7:56AM PT:

In these uncertain times, reliable communication is critical. That’s why we’ve nearly doubled server capacity for WhatsApp and continue to see strong reliability as people place more voice and video calls around the world. In addition, today we launched an information hub with tips on how healthcare workers, educators and local businesses can stay connected using WhatsApp. We also donated $1 million to the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) to expand the presence of local fact-checkers on WhatsApp.?


Update on March 17, 2020 at 6:15AM PT:

To support fact-checkers in their work around COVID-19, we’re partnering with The International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) to launch a $1 million grant program to increase their capacity during this time.?

We’re also supporting local news organizations as they deal with unexpected costs of covering COVID-19 and provide increased coverage during this time. To help, the Facebook Journalism Project is partnering with the Lenfest Institute for Journalism and the Local Media Association to offer a total of $1 million in grants to local news organizations covering COVID-19 in the US and Canada.?


Update on March 17, 2020 at 6:00AM PT:

We’re creating a $100 million grant program to help small businesses around the world impacted by the coronavirus.?


Update on March 16, 2020 at 8:46PM PT:

Keeping Our People and Our Platforms Safe

To keep our people safe, we recently requested that anyone who can work from home do so in all of our offices around the world. We are also continuing to take the necessary steps to keep our platform safe.?

Over the past couple of years we’ve substantially scaled up our investments in safety and security, including by rapidly growing content review teams and expanding our machine learning capabilities. For both our full-time employees and contract workforce there is some work that cannot be done from home due to safety, privacy and legal reasons. We have taken precautions to protect our workers by cutting down the number of people in any given office, implementing recommended work from home globally, physically spreading people out at any given office and doing additional cleaning. Given the rapidly evolving public health concerns, we are taking additional steps to protect our teams and will be working with our partners over the course of this week to send all contract workers who perform content review home, until further notice. We’ll ensure that all workers are paid during this time.??

We believe the investments we’ve made over the past three years have prepared us for this situation. With fewer people available for human review we’ll continue to prioritize imminent harm and increase our reliance on proactive detection in other areas to remove violating content. We don’t expect this to impact people using our platform in any noticeable way. That said, there may be some limitations to this approach and we may see some longer response times and make more mistakes as a result.

These are unprecedented times, but the safety and security of our platform will continue.? We are grateful to all of our teams working hard to continue doing the essential work to keep our community safe.


Update on March 16, 2020 at 5PM PT:

Joint industry statement from Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Reddit, Twitter and YouTube

“We are working closely together on COVID-19 response efforts. We’re helping millions of people stay connected while also jointly combating fraud and misinformation about the virus, elevating authoritative content on our platforms, and sharing critical updates in coordination with government healthcare agencies around the world. We invite other companies to join us as we work to keep our communities healthy and safe.”

 


Update on March 13, 2020 at 10:10AM PT:

We’re matching $20 million in donations to support COVID-19 relief efforts.


Update on March 13, 2020 at 9:30AM PT:?

We shared updates on our efforts to support the Instagram community during this time.


Update on March 12, 2020 at 12:26PM PT:?

To help people stay safe and informed during the COVID-19 outbreak, we’re providing additional resources to our community. We shared a blog post on our Community Hub to provide accurate information on disease prevention and connect community leaders with tools to help them manage their community. We also created a Business Resource Hub that includes tips and trainings to help businesses navigate challenges during the COVID-19 outbreak and support their customers during this time.?

In addition, we’re helping local governments and emergency response organizations more easily communicate with their communities. As COVID-19 has spread in the US, local governments have used Facebook to share critical information with their communities about this fast evolving situation. Because of the increasing need to get timely and accurate information to local communities, we’re expanding access to Facebook local alerts to even more municipal governments, state and local emergency response organizations and law enforcement agencies. State and local public health agencies will now also have the ability to push out timely, accurate information to their local communities. And we’ll provide additional training to partners as they start using local alerts to share best practices for using the tool most effectively.?

Eligible organizations and government agencies can request access to the local alerts tool here.?


Update on March 6, 2020 at 6:25PM PT:?

We are temporarily banning advertisements and commerce listings, like those on Marketplace, that sell medical face masks. We’ll begin to enforce this change over the next few days. We already prohibit people from making health or medical claims related to the coronavirus in product listings on commerce surfaces, including those listings that guarantee a product will prevent someone from contracting it. We also have a dedicated channel for local governments to share listings they believe violate local laws. Our teams are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and will make necessary updates to our policies if we see people trying to exploit this public health emergency.


Update on March 6, 2020 at 10:52AM PT:

Today we shared updates about the changes we’ve made to keep the Instagram community safe and informed on COVID-19.


Update on March 3, 2020 at 7:05PM PT:

CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted about the latest steps Facebook is taking.


Update on February 26, 2020 at 7:13PM PT:

As world health officials issue new guidance and warnings about coronavirus (COVID-19), we’re continuing our work to connect people to information from regional and local health organizations and limit the spread of misinformation and harmful content about the virus.?

Connecting People to Accurate Information and Helpful Resources

Anyone who searches for information related to the virus on Facebook is shown educational pop-ups on top of search results connecting them to expert health organizations including the World Health Organization (WHO). We’ve launched these globally over the last few weeks in all languages on Facebook, directing people to the WHO. In several countries we are directing people to their local ministry of health. For example, in the US we are directing people to information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and in Singapore, we’re directing people to the Singapore Ministry of Health. Moreover, in countries where the WHO has reported person-to-person transmission and deaths, we’ve shown additional messages to people toward the top of News Feed with more information.?

Screenshots of Coronavirus pop-ups in Search and News Feed

Exploitative Tactics in Ads

Yesterday we put a new policy into effect to protect people from those trying to exploit this emergency for financial gain. This means we are now prohibiting ads for products that refer to the coronavirus in ways intended to create a panic or imply that their products guarantee a cure or prevent people from contracting it. For example, ads for face masks that imply they are the only ones still available or claim that they are guaranteed to prevent the virus from spreading will not be allowed to run on our platforms.


Originally published on January 30, 2020 at 5:40PM PT:

Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus a public health emergency of international concern. As the global public health community works to keep people safe, Facebook is supporting their work in several ways, most especially by working to limit the spread of misinformation and harmful content about the virus and connecting people to helpful information. Here are some specific steps we are taking.

Limiting Misinformation and Harmful Content

Our global network of third-party fact-checkers are continuing their work reviewing content and debunking false claims that are spreading related to the coronavirus. When they rate information as false, we limit its spread on Facebook and Instagram and show people accurate information from these partners. We also send notifications to people who already shared or are trying to share this content to alert them that it’s been fact-checked.

We will also start to remove content with false claims or conspiracy theories that have been flagged by leading global health organizations and local health authorities that could cause harm to people who believe them. We are doing this as an extension of our existing policies to remove content that could cause physical harm. We’re focusing on claims that are designed to discourage treatment or taking appropriate precautions. This includes claims related to false cures or prevention methods — like drinking bleach cures the coronavirus — or claims that create confusion about health resources that are available. We will also block or restrict hashtags used to spread misinformation on Instagram, and are conducting proactive sweeps to find and remove as much of this content as we can.

Providing Helpful Information and Support

Our platforms are already being used to help people connect with accurate information about the situation, including from global and regional health organizations. We’ve been closely coordinating with leading health organizations to make this easier and more accessible for people using Facebook and Instagram.

For example, we will help people get relevant and up-to-date information from partners through messages on top of News Feed on Facebook; these will be deployed based on guidance from the WHO. When people search for information related to the virus on Facebook or tap a related hashtag on Instagram, we will surface an educational pop-up with credible information. We have also provided free advertising credits to enable organizations to run coronavirus education campaigns on Facebook and Instagram in affected regions and are discussing ways to provide additional assistance and support to health authorities.

Empowering Partners with Data Tools

We are empowering leading researchers at Harvard University’s School of Public Health and National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan by sharing aggregated and anonymized mobility data and high resolution population density maps to help inform their forecasting models for the spread of the virus as part of our broader Data for Good program. We may expand these efforts to a broader set of partners in the coming weeks. We are also helping partners understand how people are talking about the issue online through tools like CrowdTangle to better inform their efforts.

Not all of these steps are fully in place. It will take some time to roll them out across our platforms and step up our enforcement methods.

We will provide updates on additional steps we are taking in coordination with global and regional partners as the situation continues to evolve.

Graphic of a post with misinformation getting flagged

Ever since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global public health emergency, we’ve been working to connect people to accurate information and taking aggressive steps to stop misinformation and harmful content from spreading. Today we’re sharing an update on these efforts across our apps.?

Connecting People to Reliable Information?

Screenshots of our efforts to connect people to accurate information across Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp

On Facebook and Instagram: In January, we started showing educational pop-ups connecting people to information from the WHO, the CDC and regional health authorities toward the top of News Feed in countries with reported person-to-person transmissions and in all countries when people search for COVID-19 related information. We show similar pop-ups at the top of Instagram Feed in the hardest hit countries and when anyone taps on a COVID-19 related hashtag.

Last week, we launched the COVID-19 Information Center, which is now featured at the top of News Feed on Facebook in several countries and includes real-time updates from national health authorities and global organizations, such as the WHO. The COVID-19 Information Center will be available globally soon.?

Through these efforts across Facebook and Instagram, we’ve directed more than 1 billion people to resources from health authorities including the WHO – more than 100 million of whom clicked through to learn more.

We’re also giving the WHO as many free ads as they need and millions in ad credits to other health authorities so they can reach people with timely messages.

On WhatsApp: People can sign up to receive the WHO Health Alert on WhatsApp, a daily report with the latest numbers of COVID-19 cases. It also includes tips on how to prevent the spread of the disease as well as answers to commonly asked questions that people can easily send to their friends and family. We’re also working directly with health ministries in the UK, India, Indonesia, Singapore, Israel, South Africa and other countries to provide similar health updates specific to those nations. In the last week, over 100 million messages have been sent by these organizations to WhatsApp users. In addition, we donated $1 million to the International Fact-Checking Network to expand the presence of fact-checking organizations on WhatsApp, so people can submit rumors they find directly to fact-checkers. More information is available at whatsapp.com/coronavirus.

On Messenger: We’re connecting government health organizations and UN health agencies with our developer partners who can help them use Messenger most effectively to share timely information with people and speed up their replies to commonly asked questions. Agencies such as UNICEF, Argentina’s Ministry of Health and Pakistan’s Ministry of National Health Services, Regulations & Coordination are already using Messenger to ensure people have the latest information about COVID-19.

Limiting the Spread of COVID-19 Hoaxes and Misinformation

On Facebook and Instagram: We remove COVID-19 related misinformation that could contribute to imminent physical harm. We’ve removed harmful misinformation since 2018, including false information about the measles in Samoa where it could have furthered an outbreak and rumors about the polio vaccine in Pakistan where it risked harm to health aid workers. Since January, we’ve applied this policy to misinformation about COVID-19 to remove posts that make false claims about cures, treatments, the availability of essential services or the location and severity of the outbreak. We regularly update the claims that we remove based on guidance from the WHO and other health authorities. For example, we recently started removing claims that physical distancing doesn’t help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. We’ve also banned ads and commerce listings that imply a product guarantees a cure or prevents people from contracting COVID-19.

For claims that don’t directly result in physical harm, like conspiracy theories about the origin of the virus, we continue to work with our network of over 55 fact-checking partners covering over 45 languages to debunk these claims. To support the global fact-checking community’s work on COVID-19, we partnered with the Independent Fact-Checking Network to launch a $1 million grant program to increase their capacity during this time.?

Once a post is rated false by a fact-checker, we reduce its distribution so fewer people see it, and we show strong warning labels and notifications to people who still come across it, try to share it or already have. This helps give more context when these hoaxes appear elsewhere online, over SMS or offline in conversations with friends and family. On Instagram, we remove COVID-19 accounts from recommendations and we’re working to remove some COVID-19 related content from Explore, unless posted by a credible health organization.

On WhatsApp and Messenger: We’ve built clear labels that show people when they have received a forwarded message, or chain message, so they know when they are receiving something that was not written by their immediate contacts. We’ve also set a limit on the number of times messages can be forwarded on WhatsApp to reduce the spread of viral messages, and we use advanced machine learning to identify and ban accounts engaged in mass messaging. Similarly, we’ll soon begin testing stricter limits on Messenger to control the number of chats someone can forward a message to at one time.?

This is an evolving crisis, so as world health officials issue new guidance and warnings about COVID-19, we’ll continue working with them to ensure people have access to accurate and authoritative information across all of our apps.??

Keeping Our Services Stable and Reliable During the COVID-19 Outbreak http://www.asipeko.com/news/2020/03/keeping-our-apps-stable-during-covid-19/ Tue, 24 Mar 2020 20:30:56 +0000 http://www.asipeko.com/?p=22137 Our apps were built to withstand spikes, but the usage growth from COVID-19 is unprecedented across the industry — we’re doing everything we can to maintain stability throughout these spikes.

COVID-19 has upended the lives of billions of people around the world. In response to this emergency, we’ve been supporting the global public health community and working to provide people with information to help them stay safe. As the pandemic expands and more people practice physically distancing themselves from one another, this has also meant that many more people are using our apps. We’ve been asked for information on how this is affecting our services, so we’re sharing the following data to give context on the load we’re managing:

  • In many of the countries hit hardest by the virus, total messaging has increased more than 50% over the last month.
  • Similarly, in places hit hardest by the virus, voice and video calling have more than doubled on Messenger and WhatsApp.??
  • In Italy, specifically:?
    • We’ve seen up to 70% more time spent across our apps since the crisis arrived in the country.?
    • Instagram and Facebook Live views doubled in a week.?
    • We have also seen messaging increase over 50% and time in group calling (calls with three or more participants) increase by over 1,000% during the last month.?

Graph showing spike in group call time in Italy

We have received questions about revenue, so want to provide some context here too: Much of the increased traffic is happening on our messaging services, but we’ve also seen more people using our feed and stories products to get updates from their family and friends. At the same time, our business is being adversely affected like so many others around the world. We don’t monetize many of the services where we’re seeing increased engagement, and we’ve seen a weakening in our ads business in countries taking aggressive actions to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

During this emergency, we’re doing everything we can to keep our apps fast, stable, and reliable. Our services were built to withstand spikes during events such as the Olympics or on New Year’s Eve. However, those happen infrequently, and we have plenty of time to prepare for them. The usage growth from COVID-19 is unprecedented across the industry, and we are experiencing new records in usage almost every day.

Maintaining stability throughout these spikes in usage is more challenging than usual now that most of our employees are working from home. We are working to keep our apps running smoothly while also prioritizing features such as our COVID-19 Information Center on Facebook as well as the World Health Organization’s Health Alert on WhatsApp. We’re monitoring usage patterns carefully, making our systems more efficient, and adding capacity as required. To help alleviate potential network congestion, we are temporarily reducing bit rates for videos on Facebook and Instagram in certain regions. Lastly, we’re conducting testing and further preparing so we can quickly respond to any problems that might arise with our services.?

As this global public health crisis advances and more people are physically separated from their communities, we expect that people will continue to rely on our services to stay connected during this time, and we hope these connections make it easier for people to stay home.?

Facebook today announced that Kenneth Chenault, Chairman and Managing Director at General Catalyst, will not stand for re-election to the Board of Directors of the Company at the Company’s 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, in order to pursue other opportunities. Chenault will continue to serve as a director until the date of the Annual Meeting.

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder and CEO said, “I want to thank Ken for everything he’s done for Facebook. It’s been an honor to have a leader of Ken’s caliber and experience on our board and we learned a lot from him. I’m grateful for his contribution to our company and I wish him all the very best.”

Chenault, who joined Facebook’s board in February 2018, said:

“Facebook plays an important role in the lives of people around the world. During the time I served on the board, the company made progress in dealing with new challenges and continued to expand its reach and to grow the business. I wish Mark, the directors, and the management team all the best as they lead the company going forward.

I am stepping down from the board because I have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work more closely with my friend Warren Buffett, the Berkshire Hathaway board and the management team. I also believe good corporate governance entails limiting the number of board commitments for any director.”

In addition to Chenault, Facebook’s current board members are: Mark Zuckerberg; Peggy Alford, Executive Vice President, Global Sales of PayPal Holdings, Inc.; Marc L. Andreessen, Andreessen Horowitz; Drew Houston, Co-Founder and CEO, Dropbox, Inc.; Nancy Killefer, Retired Senior Partner, McKinsey & Company; Sheryl K. Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer, Facebook, Inc.; Peter A. Thiel, Founders Fund; Tracey T. Travis, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, The Estée Lauder Companies, Inc.; and Jeffrey D. Zients, CEO, The Cranemere Group Limited.

Removing Coordinated Inauthentic Behavior From Russia http://www.asipeko.com/news/2020/03/removing-coordinated-inauthentic-behavior-from-russia/ Thu, 12 Mar 2020 21:00:54 +0000 http://www.asipeko.com/?p=21976 Shield graphic

We removed a network of accounts for engaging in foreign interference on Facebook, Instagram and other internet platforms.

Today, we removed 49 Facebook accounts, 69 Pages and 85 Instagram accounts for engaging in foreign interference — which is coordinated inauthentic behavior on behalf of a foreign actor — on Facebook, Instagram and other internet platforms. This network was in the early stages of building an audience and was operated by local nationals — some wittingly and some unwittingly — in Ghana and Nigeria on behalf of individuals in Russia. It targeted primarily the United States.

The people behind this network engaged in a number of deceptive tactics, including the use of fake accounts — some of which had already been disabled by our automated systems — to manage Pages posing as non-government organizations or personal blogs, and post in Groups. They frequently posted about US news and attempted to grow their audience by focusing on topics like black history, black excellence and fashion, celebrity gossip, news and events related to famous Americans like historical figures and celebrities, and LGBTQ issues. This activity did not appear to focus on elections, or promote or denigrate political candidates. They also shared content about oppression and injustice, including police brutality. Although the people behind this activity attempted to conceal their purpose and coordination, our investigation found links to EBLA, an NGO in Ghana, and individuals associated with past activity by the Russian Internet Research Agency (IRA).

We detected this network as a result of our internal investigation into suspected coordinated inauthentic behavior ahead of US elections. The network was linked to the activity we had previously removed and attributed to the IRA in April 2018, July 2018 and November 2018. Our assessment benefited from our subsequent collaboration with a team of journalists at CNN. We’ve shared information with our industry peers, policy makers and law enforcement and will continue working with others to find and remove this kind of behavior from our platform.

  • Presence on Facebook and Instagram: 49 Facebook accounts, 69 Pages and 85 accounts on Instagram.
  • Followers: About 13,500 accounts followed one or more of these Pages and around 265,000 people followed one or more of these Instagram accounts (about 65% of which were in the US).
  • Advertising: Less than $5 was spent on ads focused on people in the US, none of which were political or issue ads. Our systems repeatedly rejected attempts by this network to run issue or political ads in the US because the people behind it were not authorized to run political ads in the US. In total, we identified approximately $379 in spending for ads on Facebook and Instagram paid for in US dollars, the majority of which were run before this operation began by people who wittingly or unwittingly joined this network in the second half of 2019.

We’re constantly working to detect and stop this type of activity because we don’t want our services to be used to manipulate people. We’re taking down these Pages and accounts because this activity was linked to individuals associated with the IRA, an entity we had previously banned from Facebook, they also used fake accounts and coordinated with one another and to mislead people about what they were doing. That behavior was the basis for our action, not the content they posted.

In addition to announcing this enforcement action today, it will also be included in our monthly CIB report for March 2020.

We are making progress rooting out this abuse, but as we’ve said before, it’s an ongoing challenge. We’re committed to continually improving to stay ahead. That means building better technology, hiring more people and working more closely with law enforcement, security experts and other companies.

Below is a sample of the content posted by some of these Pages.

Helping to Close the Gender Data Gap http://www.asipeko.com/news/2020/03/closing-the-gender-data-gap/ Tue, 10 Mar 2020 16:00:46 +0000 http://www.asipeko.com/?p=21891 Photo of two women

Project17, a new initiative to help drive progress on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, focusing first on gender equality.

The post Helping to Close the Gender Data Gap appeared first on About Facebook.

If we want to make progress on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted at the United Nations in 2015, the next decade really matters. Goal #17 is to use partnerships to strengthen sustainable development work around the world. Today, Facebook is announcing Project17, a new initiative that takes a partnership approach to help drive progress on the SDGs. Our first area of focus is gender equality.

One of the biggest barriers to achieving the SDGs, according to the UN, is a lack of access to real-time and representative data. So we’re working with gender equality organizations and experts to help provide this data and close the gender data gap. Our goal is to increase the availability and use of gender data, which is critical to guiding the development of inclusive policies, programs and services, and for tracking progress on achieving gender equality.?

Much of the data available today is gender blind: it doesn’t account for differences in men and women’s lives. Missing or unavailable data around women’s experiences creates gender data gaps, an incomplete picture of people’s experiences around the world, and an inability to accurately measure progress. In STEM fields, for example, we don’t have accurate global breakdowns of women versus men working in artificial intelligence or data science basic information that could help us achieve SDG #9, inclusive growth and innovation.?

Gender Data Research and Findings?

Over the last six months, we’ve met with partners and experts, including Data2x, Girl Effect and the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data to better understand gender data needs and constraints. We partnered with Ladysmith, an independent research firm, to conduct expert interviews, review academic research and produce a report identifying areas where tech companies can help strengthen the gender data ecosystem.?

Today, on the heels of International Women’s Day, and inspired by the 64th session of the Commission on the Status of Women, we’re sharing Ladysmith’s report. It identifies gender data gaps across many different areas, including the data used by policymakers to inform decisions and the data used to understand global challenges such as climate change induced migration.?

The report also found a lack of communication between tech companies and gender equality organizations, recommending they work closer together to close gender data gaps. It suggests tech companies leverage their resources, including data scientists, to uncover new insights from existing data,? share some of their own privacy-protected, de-identified datasets, and develop new tools to help researchers answer critical questions.

Our Commitment

This research is a catalyst. We will work with development organizations, experts and other trusted partners to leverage Facebook’s dataset to bridge gender data gaps, answer research questions, and help drive progress on gender equality. Here’s how.

First, we will provide gender-based breakdowns of some of our existing Data for Good work. We asked our partners which insights would be most valuable if broken down by gender, and they highlighted Facebook’s Displacement Maps, which are part of our Disaster Maps product. Displacement Maps already share real-time data on population movement with humanitarian response agencies, helping to determine community-specific needs in times of crisis. Our partner, the Internal Displacement Monitoring Center (IDMC) explained how sharing this data could help humanitarian aid agencies meet the needs of affected communities more efficiently. Early results show that partners with access to these maps understand what proportion of those displaced are men and women, where women are relocating, and when they are able to return. All of these calculations use aggregated and de-identified data from people using Facebook on their devices who have opted in to location history.

Australia Jan 2020 Displacement Map
This Displacement Map shows displacement trends from South Wales to other areas in Australia following the Cuddle Creek Fire. It shows the percentages of people from South Wales that were displaced in each of these areas. These numbers are disaggregated by gender, such as 0.57% of the population in South Wales was displaced in Victoria on January 1, 2020: 0.25% women and 0.32% men.

Next, in partnership with the World Bank Group and EqualMeasures2030, we’ll leverage the wide reach of our apps to run a global survey focused on gender equality. This will build on the success of the Future of Business survey, which we’ve been partnering with the World Bank and OECD on to survey small businesses around the world on Facebook. We’re also working with The Institute for Technology and Social Change, TechChange, to develop educational tools that share information about the ways unconventional datasets could be used in gender and development projects. Throughout 2020, we’ll continue to explore what datasets we should build to provide helpful insights based on the priorities identified in the report. Again, all data shared will be anonymized, aggregated and de-identified.

The Path Forward

It will take more than data to achieve gender equality and reach the SDGs. We need deeper collaboration between tech companies and development organizations to pave a path forward. The tech community has resources, unique data and data science capacity. Academics and practitioners within the gender and development community have thematic expertise and proximity to affected communities.

We hope Project17 helps our partners make progress on the SDGs and that our focus on gender data does its part to help improve gender equality around the world.

Building community is at the heart of Facebook’s mission, and supporting the leaders who foster community is an important part of this. That’s why we continue to invest in and support the community leaders who offer encouragement, bring people together and drive change.

Today, we’re announcing the Community Accelerator, a six-month program for community leaders providing training, mentorship and funding to help them grow their communities.

Selected community leaders will spend three months learning from experts, coaches and a customized curriculum to create a plan to grow their community and meet their goals. They’ll spend the next three months iterating and executing on their plan with funding and continued support from their network and a dedicated team provided through the program. Up to $3 million in total will be awarded to up to 80 program participants.?

If you run an impactful, established community, are ready to grow using Facebook’s apps and have the time and energy to invest in this program, we encourage you to apply here! Community leaders from the select program countries, including those without a presence on one of Facebook’s apps, are welcome to apply.

The Community Accelerator is part of our Facebook Community Leadership Program, a global initiative that invests in people building communities and now includes:

  • The Community Accelerator which commits millions of dollars to support people creating and leading communities. This is an evolution of our Fellowship program, which supported 115 leaders across the world. Together, those leaders reported that their projects impacted over 1.9 million lives through online community support, the use of helpful resources and other activities made possible by the program. The fellowship program included leaders like Latasha Morrison who is driving healthy dialogue around race relations and Noah Nasiali?who provides farmers in Africa with credible and reliable farming information.
  • Learning Labs which brings group admins with similar goals together into a collaborative digital classroom for structured learning.
  • Power Admins Groups which bring over 40,000 community leaders together to share advice with one another and connect with our team to test new features and share feedback.
  • The Community Hub, where anyone can learn how to use our community tools and get more information about our programs. It includes tips and tools for starting, managing and growing a community.

In addition, we know that growing a group more efficiently and managing conversations are important parts of being a community leader. That’s why we built new tools to help them add new members and moderate conversations in their group.

  • Membership management: We’ve improved how group admins can manage new member requests, including:
    • More format options in membership questions, like single-answer multiple-choice questions and multiple-answer checkbox questions.
    • Approving new member requests automatically based on requirements, like someone’s current city, if they filled out all membership questions, have other friends in the group and have been on Facebook for a specific length of time.
    • Additional filters, like potential members who have answered all membership questions, more options within the “Join Facebook Date” filter, if they have or do not have a profile picture and the ability to create and save the specific combinations of filters that are used frequently.

Screenshot of group approval settings

  • Content moderation: To make it easier for admins to see important posts and find specific content, we’ve added:?
    • Keyword Alerts to let admins create a custom list of words and phrases and then receive notifications when those terms appear in their group, allowing them to easily spot and respond to content that may need more immediate attention.
    • Post topics to help admins and members quickly search for all relevant content around a particular topic within a group.

These programs and tools are helping communities grow and thrive, and we’re inspired by the leaders who bring the world closer together every day.
