Facebook appoints Natasha Jog as the Election integrity Lead for India

Former Indian Journalist, Natasha Jog has been chosen as the election integrity lead for Facebook in India. The development came to the fore on Tuesday.

From the past four few months, the social media giant was looking to fill the vacancy of the aforementioned post. The company aims to prevent negative and bias influence in the upcoming general election.

According to reports, Ms. Jog will report Katie Harbath, the company’s public policy director, global elections.She is currently based in New Delhi and Ms. Harbath is based outside California in the US. Facebook did not provide any information for the story and ET correspondents could not communicate Mr. Jog despite multiple attempts. 

Natasha jog worked with NDTV news channel for over 18 years and served multiple positions like a senior editor, special programming and senior anchor. Last year July she resigned from the company. Ms. Jog was also involved in startup programming for four years during her tenure in NDTV. She started her career in 2000. 

In the past two months, the social media giant has been pushing itself to boost up its election integrity in India. In December last year, the company started with identity confirmation. It also unveiled certain steps towards ad transparency, launching new disclaimer categories and labels for political ad agencies.

The enforcement of the new policies is expected to begin this month itself.

Apart from the new hiring, Facebook has also chosen two more experienced public policy professionals, to handle the matters of politics and government.
