A new book has claimed Facebook security noticed Russian interference in the 2016 election long before voters cast their votes. According to the book, titled “An Ugly Truth: Inside Facebook’s Battle for Domination,” the social media giant noticed interference eight months before the polls opened.

The authors wrote that the security team had “uncovered information that no one, including the U.S. government, had previously known.”

However, Facebook executives, including Mark Zuckerberg, were not notified of the findings until December of that year. Facebook’s chief security officer claimed no one at the company knew the full extent of the interference.

Meanwhile, a Facebook spokesperson said since 2017, more than 150 covert influence operations originating in more than 50 counties, have been removed from the platform.
