Internal Memos Show Facebook Will Continue to Allow People to Live-Stream Attempts to Self-Harm
The Guardianobtained more than 100 recent internal documents from Facebook that appear to reveal their moderation tactics for controversial topics that appear on the site, including sexually graphic images, racism, hate speech, terrorism, and self-harm.
An unnamed source toldThe Guardianthe reason Facebook has such a hard time monitoring its content because “It has grown too big, too quickly.” There are not enough people to moderate and potentially censor content that may fall into the aforementioned categories and the rules for censoring are murky enough to confuse employees who oftentimes have to make snap judgments about problematic posts.
For example, “Someone shoot Trump” is not permissible on the site,The Guardianlearned, because as president “he is in a protected category.” That said, “To snap a bitch’s neck, make sure to apply all your pressure to the middle of her throat” and “Fuck off and die” will be left alone because they’re not actual, credible threats, according to one of the training manuals obtained.
