The European Commission has published the first annual self-assessment reports by Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, Twitter and 7 European trade associations.

The self-assessments were part of the agreement that these firms committed to when they signed the EU Code of Practice against disinformation in October 2018, and were asked to report monthly on their actions.

The European Commission has previously welcomed the progress made by the big three in the fight against disinformation, but it continues to warn them that tech giants are not doing enough on the matter.

In February the Commission was forced to rebuke Facebook, Google and Twitter over their efforts to crack down on fake news.

And now the European Commission has said that there has been “improved transparency”, and “closer dialogue with platforms as regards their policies against disinformation.”
