Facebook BANS Videos To Stop Flow Of Misinformation In The 2020 US Election

Facebook will remove deepfakes and other manipulated videos from its platform if they have been edited, in the run-up to the US election in November.

In a move aimed at curbing misinformation ahead of the US presidential election, the social network is vowing to strengthen its policy regarding manipulated videos.   

Deepfakes are videos of a person who has been altered with someone else’s likeness using AI. 

The technology has increasingly become an issue in the last year due to its ability to contribute to the spread of fake news, misplaced identify and even fraud.
