Facebook remove more than 20 million pieces of adult nudity or pornography in three months

The social network said it took down 21 million pieces of adult nudity in the first three months of the year, according to its first Community Standards Enforcement Report.

The social media network took action against 1.9 million posts containing Islamic State, al-Qaida and related terrorism propaganda before users reported them in the first quarter of this year, Facebook said in a report.

Most of the 583 million fake accounts Facebook disabled in Q1 were disabled "within minutes of registration".

Facebook took action against 2.5 million pieces of content in the first quarter, up 56 per cent over the previous quarter.

One of his followers pointed out to him that he should have checked out the MCU starter pack before watching the movie . Another new film, " Breaking In ", a thriller starring Gabrielle Union , was third at $16.8 million.

Improved technology using artificial intelligence had helped it act on 3.4 million posts containing graphic violence, almost three times more than it had in the last quarter of 2017.

"We have a lot of work still to do to prevent abuse", Facebook Product Management vice president Guy Rosen said.

Instead of trying to determine how much offending material it didn't catch, Facebook provided an estimate on how frequently it believes users saw posts that violated its standards, including content that its screening system didn't detect.

More than a quarter of the human race accesses the platform, with two billion monthly users. However for hate speech, Rosen said, "our technology still doesn't work that well". For instance, nudity only received seven to nine views for every 10,000 content views.

"AI still needs to get better before we can use it to effectively remove more linguistically nuanced issues like hate speech in different languages, but we're working on it", said Zuckerberg to CNet. But of the more recent total, only 38 percent was flagged by Facebook before users reported it (an improvement on the 23.6 percent in the prior three months).

The company has been using artificial intelligence to help pinpoint the bad content, but Rosen said the technology still struggles to understand the context around a Facebook post pushing hate, and one simply recounting a personal experience. It refrained from showing how prevalent terrorist propaganda and hate speech is on the platform, saying it couldn't reliably estimate either.

Facebook also made available information on government requests for its user data. "While not always flawless, this combination helps us find and flag potentially violating content at scale before many people see or report it".

"In addition, in many areas - whether it's spam, porn or fake accounts - we're up against sophisticated adversaries who continually change tactics to circumvent our controls, which means we must continuously build and adapt our efforts". "This is the same data we use to measure our progress internally - and you can now see it to judge our progress for yourselves".
