Facebook will be asked to face questions in South African parliament

The Parliamentary Committee of Communications and Digital Technologies has agreed to invite Facebook to answer questions around misinformation surrounding the 2021 elections.

This follows after the Democratic Alliance requested the parliamentary committee invite Facebook to meet and address concerns over the moderation of content on its social media platforms.

DA Member: Is there a possibility that FB will moderate or remove any pro-DA discussions or links on FB?
Facebook representative: No, we will only ever moderate and remove right wing pro-Trump content.
ANC Member: *suddenly wakes up from long nap* erm.. er... The ANC are planning to tax Facebook to help pay towards SABC...
