Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Google’s Sundar Pichai have said that the UK is due to vote on its Brexit deal on July 22.
Facebook and Google, who have been key supporters of Remainers in the UK, have said their platforms will not allow any Brexit-related content to appear in their respective social networks.
However, the companies have not said whether their platforms would block any Brexit related content.
Pichais’ office said on Monday that Facebook had already blocked posts related to the Brexit process in Britain.
The company did not provide further details.
The UK government said on Friday that the two companies were acting in their own interests and had no intention of blocking any Brexit content.
The BBC’s Amber Rudd reported from London, while the Associated Press contributed to this report.
