Facebook squeezes back on a report as it released its “war room”, the team created by the company to combat issues like disinformation campaigns on its platform.
The company told The Hill that the team had not been thought of as a firm fixture within the company, but as an attempt to increase the preparations for big elections like this month’s middle.
Bloomberg had reported the end of the war room in a monthly report highlighting how Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s number two executive respond to the negative attention she begins to receive in the light of the company’s latest scandals.
According to Bloomberg, the social network will now rely on a permanent strategic response team that Sandberg had created to deal with urgent, developing situations that meet those companies.
Last month, the circuit was sold to the media as the company’s defense against election efforts, with a handful of public, public skating articles about the team in mid-October.
The company said on Monday that there was little need for a center of war’s warlock when the election had passed, but it could still use such teams in the future.
A new strategic response team is led by Justin Osofsky, Facebook’s vice president of the business.
Osofsky told Bloomberg that the team handles the types of problems that cross the company and concern a variety of product groups.
