With voting done in those countries, Facebook confirmed that it will widen its focus to other parts of the world with upcoming elections where the initiative is deemed necessary. "The war room will be operational ahead of major events, and it still stands," Facebook vice president of product management Guy Rosen said on Twitter.

"It was effective for our work in both the Brazil and US elections which is why it's going to be expanded, not disbanded."
