Facebook says it won't mess with voters' minds - CNET

Leaving the mess-with-minds activities to campaigns and PACs

"Facebook said Friday it wouldn't use its algorithms to influence voting in the US presidential election this November. "We as a company are neutral," a Facebook spokesman said in a statement. "We have not and will not use our products in a way that attempts to influence how people vote."

That statement comes after a Gizmodo report about a weekly internal poll at Facebook. Employees considered questions they should bring before CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and among them, reportedly, was, "What responsibility does Facebook have to help prevent President Trump in 2017?" Facebook didn't respond to a request to confirm the question was actually in the poll."
