In recent months, Facebook has attracted numerous criticisms as the platform served as the main source for spreading fake news. However, the company since then have undertaken several steps to fight the problem. In a recent comment, the company’s head of media partnerships for Europe, the Middle East and Asia admitted that the platform need to work on its transparency.
The comment had come from Patrick Walker during the company sponsored INMA World Congress when he also thanked the media executives for their feedback and promised significant improvement in the coming months in the platform.
During the event he said, “Facebook as a company has not been very transparent for a long time. And a number of things for the past year have really opened us up,” Walker said. “And I think it’s a good time actually.”
“They’re all on a list of things we’ve needed to come forward and discuss. And I’m very pleased that that conversation continues here. It will continue for the months and years to come. And I just wanted to raise a toast to all of you for inspiring us to do better, through your great feedback and your cooperation and your partnerships.”
“I love the slogan of INMA, which is ‘Sharing Ideas and Inspiring Change. So a toast to sharing ideas and inspiring change!”
