Tech Transparency Project: Facebook Scaled Back Voter Registration Kickoff

Tech Transparency Project: Facebook Scaled Back Voter Registration Kickoff. “Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced in mid-June that his company would embark on the ‘largest voting information campaign in American history,’ with a goal of helping 4 million people register to vote…. But the effort got off to a slow and halting start, according to Facebook emails to state officials obtained by the Tech Transparency Project (TTP), amid baseless Trump campaign complaints that the initiative was meant to help Joe Biden. Facebook quietly scaled back an initial registration drive over the July 4 weekend from two days to one and limited it to Facebook instead of extending it to Instagram and Facebook Messenger as originally planned, according to the emails, which were obtained through open records requests.”
