Nudity, hate speech and spam: Facebook reveals how much content it kills
16 May, 2018, 13:40 | Author: Rafael Roberts
The numbers were disclosed in a report Tuesday that breakdown how much material Facebook removes for violating service terms. 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.
The company removed or put a warning screen for graphic violence in front of 3.4 million pieces of content in the first quarter, almost triple the 1.2 million a quarter earlier, according to the report.
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.

Hate speech is checked by review teams rather than technology.
With graphic violence, the autimaged system also did a pretty good job, but as far as flagging hate speech, the company was only able to recognize around 38% of the total number. Facebook's technology did a better job of finding graphic violence and automatically identified 86% of the 3.5 million pieces of that kind of content that was removed during the period. The problem with trying to proactively scour Facebook for hate speech is that the company's AI can only understand so much at the moment.
