that the i.d.f. sees itself as in a precarious position. facebook claims that helps the scottish national party would know landslide victory in scotland during the u.k. general election in twenty fifteen the social media giant created a special unit to help politicians connect with a wider audience facebook is currently under pressure over allegations it helped russia to meddle in the us election. has the details what it all started facebook was fun and innocent was a place to share your holiday snaps and keep up with friends but then it got political facebook is even boasting about the fact that it helped the scottish national party to win sweeping victories in the u.k. general elections of two thousand and fifteen campaign is across the political spectrum now recognize the using facebook and facebook parents in particular made it to montreal difference to the final election result at this point little did we

know but facebook has a government and politics team that helps to win victories for its clients right now the director of the team is katie harben a former republican party digital strategist and apparently she's quite good at her job. philippine president rodrigo did tard say took office after a strong campaign that included social media including facebook with the hash tag the leader i want. the trump campaign's digital director also says that facebook helped them to win the race so facebook now lets you get to places we took opportunities and i think the other side did their stuff a bit inside our office what we're doing inside the building teachers how to use a platform. germany's rising anti immigration party the a f d actually had meetings with the facebook team which was happy to offer them electoral advice doesn't this all sound a lot like election meddling you know that things supposedly done by evil russians

who purchased ads and american lines i don't want anyone to use our tools to undermine democracy that's not what we stand for so facebook is just completely square and bipartisan and that's why it has a special team that helps politicians to win elections that makes sense right i think social media the people that run it are very biased according to their own political beliefs and i think that that's very very dangerous and it's a shame and that's why i that catered for a long time that concert is usually conservatives in this country are the victims of i think conservatives in the united states should certainly think of forming and starting their own version of facebook and their own version of google and their own version of twitter and i don't understand facebook's kind of subversive political machine that i don't think most people are aware of and i think most people who when they become aware of it like me would be kind of concerned about it
