Not only are social media election meddling attempts ongoing around the world, according to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, but they are becoming more difficult to root out.

"We have also seen these actors get more sophisticated at trying to hide their tracks," Zuckerberg told the Munich Security Conference, per Axios.

Facebook is working extensively on "developing AI systems that can identify fake accounts and networks of accounts" in "helping to defend the integrity of" more than 200 elections around the world, Zuckerberg said.

"In the last couple of weeks, we took down one that was coming out of Russia [targeting] Ukraine, and one coming out of Iran that was targeting the U.S.," Zuckerberg told the conference, per Axios.

Zuckerberg said Facebook is also "tracking" and "worried about" domestic election interference attempts, adding his company is making an effort to move "from being more reactive about addressing content-type issues to being more proactive."
