WHAT HAPPENED

1. From wednesday to saturday there was a lot of content going around that involved election fraud, about 10% of all civic content and 1-2% of all US VPVs. There was also a fringe of incitement to violence.

2. Dozens of employees were monitoring this, and FB launched about 15 measures before the election, and another about 15 in the days that followed. Most of the measures have made existing processes more aggressive: for example, by lowering thresholds, making penalties more severe or widening eligibility for existing measures. Some measures were qualitative: reclassification of certain types of infringing content, which was not previously.

3. I guess these measures reduced the prevalence of content violation by at least 2X. However, they suffered collateral damage (removal and demotion of non-violent content) and the episode caused noticeable resentment from Republican Facebook users who feel unfairly targeted.
