When did Facebook become a serious player in a political game?

Solicitor Yair Cohen says in a TV interview with RT News that during 2019, Facebook has cemented its position as a political player. Also in 2019, Facebook officially ceased to be a mere social media platform as it has engaged on a regular basis in editorial activism.
