Facebook is teaming up with the Atlantic Council to help stop misinformation in elections around the world, Axios reported.

Manipulation of Facebook around the world can be more difficult due to language and cultural differences and 87 percent of Facebook's user base is outside the U.S., Axios noted.

The Atlantic Council "promotes constructive leadership and engagement in international affairs based on the Atlantic Community's central role in meeting global challenges," according to the group's website. 

The project will aim at specific areas, "monitoring for misinformation and foreign interference and also working to help educate citizens," Axios reported. 

In April, Facebook enhanced privacy protections for users around the world, complying with new European rules that are designed to make it simpler for user to allow and disallow consent to use their data.
