removal efforts centered on spam and fake accounts promoting it.

In its quarterly report on Community Standards Enforcement, Facebook has revealed that it has cut down on spam, hate speeches, violence and adult nudity by axing 583 million fake accounts.

"We took down 21 million pieces of adult nudity and sexual activity in Q1 2018 - 96 percent of which was found and flagged by our technology before it was reported", said Mr Rosen. For every 10,000 views of content on Facebook, the company said, roughly 8 of them were removed for featuring sex or nudity in the first quarter, up from 7 views at the end of previous year. We took down or applied warning labels to about three and a half million pieces of violent content in Q1 2018 - 86 per cent of which was identified by our technology before it was reported to Facebook.


Meanwhile, Facebook's rate of squashing fake accounts is actually decreasing.

The social network released its first content moderation report today. As indicated by the article, by Sheera Frenkel, Facebook has been under pressure to remove nudity, violence and hate speech, among other "inflammatory content".

The report also addressed that users will be notified about the detection of these flagged posts and this amounts to 85.6 percent of the user base.

Facebook acknowledged it has work to do when it comes to properly removing hate speech.

This, Rosen says, is in addition to the millions of fake accounts that are blocked from registering on a daily basis yet even still, it is estimated that as many as four percent of the active Facebook accounts during the quarter were still fake.


- The company found 2.5 million posts containing hate speech, a 56 percent increase over the last quarter of 2017.

However, messages inciting hatred, the robot can distinguish much more hard - a computer's intelligence does not understand the cultural and contextual features, so in this category, Facebook is largely dependent on staff moderators.

Facebook said it was able to remove so many accounts and posts that violated its community standards thanks to its AI tools. "This is the same data we use to measure our progress internally - and you can now see it to judge our progress for yourselves".

It claimed to detect nearly 100 percent of spam and to have removed 837 million posts assimilated to spam over the same period.

Facebook, the world's largest social media firm, has never previously released detailed data about the kinds of posts it takes down for violating its rules.
