Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg has insisted that his social network enabled New York businessman, Donald Trump win the US Presidential election.

Despite several polls and media outlets predicting a landslide victory for Hillary Clinton, Trump managed to sweep the elections.

Zuckerberg spoke at a Techonomy conference in California and defended Facebook from claims that its Newsfeed helped influence the election in Trump’s favor.

“The idea that fake news on Facebook influenced the election in any way is a pretty crazy idea,” he said.

“If you believe that then I don’t think you have internalised the message Trump supporters are trying to send in this election.”

“My goal, and what I care about, is giving people the power to share so we can make the world more open and connected. That requires building a good version of News Feed. We still have work to do on that. We’re going to keep improving it.

“On the community guidelines, I think as norms change and people want to see more news, I think we’ll have to continue to evolve the guidelines to reflect the value that the community holds.”
