"We are adopting a policy of attaching a link to our Voting Information Center for posts that discuss voting, including from politicians," Zuckerberg wrote.

The announcement is loaded because Trump used Facebook to spread misinformation about voting, and the company did nothing about it.

That "information" will consist of a link to Facebook's new Voting Information Center.

Zuckerberg announced that the company would add a link to "authoritative information" on all Facebook and Instagram posts having to do with voting.

In addition to the links to the Voter Information Center, Facebook said it would add a label to posts that violate its policies (such as hate speech) if they're newsworthy (i.e., if they're from Trump).
