Shock horror! People on the internet don't always tell the truth!

From what I can tell it is basically FB's self-promotion. "Look at us, we can fix elections. Sorry about the last one, we'll try to make sure the other party wins next time."

El Reg's own look at the "Russian meddling" showed it to be quite inconsequential.

The looks more like a power-grap by politicians rather than anything which could ever hope to be either desirable or workable.
