Ever since Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential elections, there were a lot of speculations that social media sites like Facebook and the political power of Russia have helped him. Trump is accused now and then about his unfair means of winning the elections. Presently, a Facebook executive has claimed that the company was indirectly helped Donald Trump to become the President of the United States. Andrew Bosworth was a close aid to Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg. He made the statement in an internal memo last week.
Andrew Bosworth, who is presently working as Vice President of AR/VR at Facebook, released the memo on his profile which was leaked to the New York Times before he made it public. Andrew said “Mr. Trump didn’t win because of misinformation but won because of his best digital ad campaign. His ad campaign is by far the best I’ve ever seen from any advertiser. Period.” The memo has initially been for the internal employees of Facebook. Andrew also claimed that he had received many comments on his note ranging from a wide range of issues like - Russian interference, Cambridge Analytica, fake news, etc.
One of the comments questioned whether Facebook was responsible for Donald Trump getting elected as President from a long-time Facebook employee. “I think the answer is yes, but not for the reasons anyone thinks,” replied Andrew. He further added that in practical terms, Cambridge Analytica is a total non-event related to elections.
