Facebook apologizes for mistakes in removing hate messages.
Facebook has apologized after the case of a hate speech in a probe to remove hate messages posted by users of social network. This week’s investigation by Proppublika has revealed that Facebook approved a photograph even after the review, in which a corpse was seen and said, “Good Muslims can only be those who are corpses.” While in a second post it was said “the death of Muslims”. Although they are now removed.
The non-profit nonprofit company reviewed 900 posts, found that despite reviewing content of Facebook, they have different attitudes towards them despite having similar content and do not always work according to the company’s guidelines. Propublika sent a sample of 49 items to Facebook and asked for clarification on it. Facebook acknowledged its mistake and said that it was a mistake to censor him. Most of these were hate messages, which failed to remove Facebook. “We apologize for our mistakes, we should do better,” Propublika said quoting Facebook’s vice president Justin Osofsky.

You do not need to always have any unforeseen or unforeseen event with ‘Snooze’. , But rather stops someone from the post for a short time. “
