FACEBOOK OWNER OFFERS NO HELP IN REMOVING POSTS

Submitted on:

FACEBOOK OWNER MARK ZUCKERBERG OFFERS NO HELP IN REMOVING HATEFUL POST FROM THE SITE.
Ten recommendations were presented to Mr. Zuckerberg and he only attempted to address one: hiring a civil rights position but offered no attempt to respond to the other nine. Zuckerberg offered no automatic recourse for advertisers whose content runs  alongside hateful posts. He had no answer for why Facebook recommends hateful groups to users. He refused to agree to provide an option for victims of hate and harassment to connect with a live Facebook representative. He declined to adopt common-sense content moderation policies and practices like the ones put forward by the Change the Terms coalition, or develop a process to ensure that their terms of service are fairly applied and do not bend to political expediency. He did not offer any tangible plans on how Facebook will address the rampant disinformation and violent conspiracies on its platform.
