Facebook says it’s now closely monitoring traffic across the country as the election approaches, with a dedicated team working around the clock searching for evidence of electoral interference.

Facebook is cracking down on electoral interference on the social media platform in the lead-up to the election.

With less than a fortnight until the election, the social media giant has announced it is closely monitoring all traffic across the country.

A dedicated team is working around the clock to review content and decide whether it is factual and belongs on the site.

But their job isn’t always easy, even with the help of fact-checkers.
