Facebook, Aiming for Transparency, Details Removal of Posts and Fake Accounts

What's the score

Vice president of product management, Guy Rosen, said: "We believe that increased transparency tends to lead to increased accountability and responsibility over time, and publishing this information will push us to improve more quickly too". "Accountable to the community".

This, the company says, is because there is little of it in the first place and because most is removed before it is seen.

Spam and fake accounts were the most prevalent and in the first quarter of this year, Facebook removed 837 million pieces of spam and 583 million fake accounts.

These releases come in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, which has left the company battling to restore its reputation with users and developers - though employees have said the decision to release the Community Standards was not driven by recent events.

Over the past year, the company has repeatedly touted its plans to expand its team of reviewers from 10,000 to 20,000.

Facebook took down or applied warnings labels to about 3.5 million pieces of violent content in Q1 2018 - 86% of which was identified by our technology before it was reported to Facebook.

The developers over at Epic Games has announced that the installment of Fortnite's 4.2 patch will require server maintenance. Server downtime will begin at 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM BST / 6 PM AET, although no estimate for its duration was shared.

In total the social network took action on 3.4m posts or parts of posts that contained such content.

Most of the content was found and flagged before users had a chance to spot it and alert the platform.

It took down 21 million pieces of adult nudity and sexual activity in Q1 2018 - the company's systems had already flagged 96% before being reported.

Facebook took action on 2.5 million pieces of content over hate speech, but doesn't have view numbers as it is still "developing measurement methods for this violation type".

While artificial intelligence is able to sort through nearly all spam and content glorifying al-Qaeda and ISIS and most violent and sexually explicit content, it is not yet able to do the same for attacks on people based on personal attributes like race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual and gender identity, the company said in its first ever Community Standards Enforcement Report.
