Facebook has to take action to win the public’s trust ahead of the upcoming Israeli election, according to the company’s Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, who is currently visiting Israel. Sandberg made the statement while speaking at an event held at Facebook’s Tel Aviv offices. The election is scheduled for September 17. Sandberg said that Facebook is developing protections against abuse and foreign interference with its platform, blocking millions of fake accounts and working to slow the spread of fake news. She added that the company is working with the Israeli Central Elections Committee and other organizations to promote positive discourse. “It is a never-ending job,” she said.
