Zuckerberg speaks at Georgetown University in Washington. With just over a year left until

Following questions about its ability to identify and fight disinformation and influence campaigns on its platforms during the 2016 campaign, the company has been at the center of attention ahead of the 2020 US presidential election.

The efforts include a special security tool for elected officials and candidates that monitors them for hacking attempts.

Announcing a slew of initiatives created to prevent a repeat of 2016's presidential election, in which Russian agents allegedly exploited Facebook to influence voters, the company said it would begin labelling "state-controlled media".

New measures will also see Facebook start labeling content that independent fact-checkers have marked as false both on Facebook and its sister-site Instagram more prominently. It will put labels on top of what are deemed "false" and "partly false" photos and videos.

On Monday, the social network said it will attempt to increase transparency by adding more information about owners of Facebook pages so users can better understand who is behind a page's content. This comes after the company said it noticed groups and people "failing" to disclose the organizations behind pages so people think it is run independently.

Zuckerberg told reporters that Facebook would introduce a new USA presidential candidate spend tracker on political advertising as part of its efforts to make its ad library easier to use.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg said last week that he doesn't believe it's Facebook's role to make decisions about posts from politicians.
