Facebook reports surge in posts with graphic violence

  • What's the score

But that's not to say the relatively low number is due to an defect from Facebook.

Moving on, Facebook said that it removed 21 million pieces of content that depicted adult nudity and sexual activity and 96% of that was discovered by its technology before a user reported the content. Facebook said that for every 10,000 pieces of content on the service, seven to nine views were made on content that in some way violates its pornography regulations.

Facebook took down 3.4 million pieces of graphic violence during the first three months of this year, almost triple the 1.2 million during the previous three months.

To distinguish the many shades of offensive content, Facebook separates them into categories: graphic violence, adult nudity/sexual activity, terrorist propaganda, hate speech, spam and fake accounts. It addressed how Facebook enforces its guidelines, detailing the removal of hundreds of millions of fake accounts and spam items in the first three months of 2018. This is in addition to the millions of fake account attempts Facebook said it prevents daily from ever registering with Facebook.

Democrats are also looking for Conor Lamb (who won a special election earlier this year in a different district) to take down Rep. The two county school board races appear on city ballots, although city residents are ineligible to vote on those positions.

"For graphic violence, we took down or applied warning labels to about 3.5 million pieces of violent content in Q1 2018 - 86 percent of which was identified by our technology before it was reported to Facebook", it said.

Facebook also took down 837 million pieces of spam in Q1, nearly all of which were identified and flagged before anyone reported them. However for hate speech, Rosen said, "our technology still doesn't work that well".

Zuckerberg's statement and Rosen's blog post comes one day after Ime Archibong, Facebook's Vice President of Product Partnerships, revealed Facebook would remove apps that leaked user data.

Aston Martin DB11 gets more power with the AMR flagship
Power from the DB11's 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 is up by 30hp to 640hp while torque remains unchanged at 516lb ft. On sale now, the standard DB11 AMR is priced from £174,995, a jump of £17,095 over the outgoing DB11 V12.

"For example, artificial intelligence isn't good enough yet to determine whether someone is pushing hate or describing something that happened to them so they can raise awareness of the issue". It refrained from showing how prevalent terrorist propaganda and hate speech is on the platform, saying it couldn't reliably estimate either. The company attributed the decline to the "variability of our detection technology's ability to find and flag" fakes.

We're often asked how we decide what's allowed on Facebook - and how much bad stuff is out there. But only 38 percent had been detected through Facebook's efforts - the rest flagged up by users.

Mr Rosen said making the figures public will "push" the company to improve more quickly.

"Today's report gives you a detailed description of our internal processes and data methodology".

Somehow, none of Brad Stevens' peers voted him as NBA's best coach
This Coach of the Year Award is separate from the Red Auerbach Coach of the Year Award, which is voted on by the media. So while they may believe multiple coaches are worthy, there's only one option.

"My top priorities this year are keeping people safe and developing new ways for our community to participate in governance and holding us accountable", said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a post on his profile Tuesday.
