The head of the European Commission called on Google and Facebook to combat fakes
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker believes that the major social networks and IT companies such as Google and Facebook should actively combat misinformation on the Internet. About it reports Deutsche Welle with reference to the interview of an official of the media group Funke.
During the meeting, Juncker said that the social network took upon itself the obligation to develop measures that will prevent the distribution of fake messages. In particular, during election campaigns.
We will check how this can be implemented
— said the head of the European Commission.
We will remind that earlier the head of the European Parliament Martin Schulz and the Minister of justice of Germany Heiko Maas suggested to introduce fines for fake news.
And earlier this month the European Commission called on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Microsoft faster to take action against the incitement of hatred in their services.
