Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has called for greater regulation of harmful content on the internet while speaking at the Munich Security Conference. Zuckerberg conceded that the social media company had been tardy in understanding Russian disinformation campaigns during the 2016 US presidential election campaign, while he said that purveyors of disinformation are becoming better at "covering their tracks". Zuckerberg added that Facebook has 35,000 people working on content and security reviews, and that it takes down more than one million fake accounts each day.
