- As it announces the launch of a Transparency Centre to act as a one stop information centre providing information about its integrity efforts.
Facebook’s industry-leading Community Standards Enforcement Report for the first quarter of 2021 reveals that it is making progress in preventing and taking action on content that goes against its Community Standards while protecting the community’s safety, privacy and dignity.
According to the platform, it has also expanded its reporting efforts by adding more prevalence metrics for Instagram, which will now include prevalence for adult nudity, violent and graphic content.
Prevalence of hate speech on Facebook continues to decrease and this is an improvement that continues to stem from changes Facebook has made to reduce problematic content in News Feed, the report says.
“The report highlights how we are getting better and more efficient at enforcing our Community Standards through a multipronged approach that includes Artificial Intelligence (AI), human moderation, user reporting tools and collaboration with external experts.”, said Kojo Boakye, Director of Public Policy, Africa.
“It’s pleasing that hate speech prevalence on Facebook continues to decrease for a third quarter in a row. Across the board, we’re seeing improvements in our numbers, and we will continue to share our progress each quarter.”, he added.
Going forward, the platform has revealed that it is also launching a Transparency Centre to provide a single destination for information about its integrity efforts. This site says it will make it easier to view Community Standards Enforcement Report trends and find data around specific policy areas.
