We've invested more than $13 billion and quadrupled our safety and security teams to 40,000 people since 2016. These teams reduce the spread of harmful and illicit content on our platforms and develop AI technology to remove millions of fake accounts each day.
More than 80 independent fact-checking partners help us combat misinformation in over 60 languages. When they rate content False, we apply a label with more context and move it lower in News Feed so it’s seen by fewer people.
DATA AND PRIVACY
We have a responsibility to protect your privacy and give you control. We built new tools to make it easier for you to adjust your privacy settings.
We expanded encryption to keep data and messages more secure. People can also turn on two-factor authentication, login alerts and other options using Privacy Checkup.
Data tools like Access Your Information and Download Your Information allow people to view and manage their information, and our new Transfer Your Information tool keeps data secure when it moves between services.
PREPARING FOR ELECTIONS
A vote counted is a voice heard, which is why we secure our platforms ahead of elections and empower people to vote.
Facebook security teams have disrupted and removed more than 150 covert influence operations since 2017, stopping them from using inauthentic accounts, Pages and Groups to manipulate public debate.
Each month more than 3 million people globally use the Ad Library to make more than 50 million searches about who funded an ad, a range of how much they spent, and the reach of the ad across demographics.
We remove misrepresentations about who can vote, qualifications for voting, and methods for voting, as well as whether a vote will be counted and misrepresentation about the materials required to vote.
We work with governments, law enforcement agencies, nonprofits, civil rights groups and other tech companies to stop emerging threats.
SUPPORTING A RESPONSIBLE END TO THE PANDEMIC
Connecting people with authoritative COVID-19 information remains crucial, and we're supporting efforts to keep communities safe and connected.
We’ve connected 2 billion people to reliable information about COVID-19 and removed 20 million pieces of COVID-19 and vaccine misinformation.
More than 4 million Americans have used our vaccine finder to locate COVID-19 vaccination centers and make appointments, and over 50% of Facebook users in the US have seen someone use the COVID-19 vaccine profile frames from the HHS and the CDC.
INNOVATING MORE RESPONSIBLY
We’ve learned worthwhile lessons and we’re applying them to what comes next.
No one has a crystal ball, but we’ve built our teams and technology to look around corners and prepare for upcoming challenges. We’ve changed not just what we build, but how we build it — innovating with integrity, right from the start.
