New Delhi, August 17
Facebook, that’s on the centre of a political slugfest over allegations of supporting the ruling dispensation, on Monday mentioned its social media platform prohibits hate speech and content material that incites violence and these insurance policies are enforced globally with out regard to political affiliation.
However, the social media big—which counts India amongst its largest markets globally—additionally acknowledged that “there is more to do”.
“We prohibit hate speech and content that incites violence and we enforce these policies globally without regard to anyone’s political position or party affiliation. While we know there is more to do, we’re making progress on enforcement and conduct regular audits of our process to ensure fairness and accuracy,” a Facebook spokesperson mentioned.
The feedback got here because the ruling BJP and opposition Congress traded barbs over Facebook’s alleged bias.
While BJP accused the social media big of censoring nationalist voices, opposition Congress seized on a Wall Street Journal report that alleged that Facebook’s content material insurance policies favour the ruling get together. — PTI
