.. & Such Portrayals
Facebook will aim to establish a higher-standard for hateful content portrayed in their ads, as Zuckerberg claims that they approximate the identification and elimination of almost 90% of hate-speech. And this is prior to anyone even reporting them to the company.
They already prohibit a broader category of hateful content in the ads they run. Still – their ads policy will regardless be further expanded.
This further expansion is set to contain prohibiting claims around discriminations towards people from any race, ethnicity, national-origin, religious belief, caste, sexual orientation, gender identity or immigration status. This also includes – those that pose a threat to the physical safety, health or survival of said groups or any others.
This policy expansion is said to also equip Facebook with a capability towards better protecting their immigrant, migrant, refugee and asylum seeker users – or otherwise – from any ads potentially posing an inferiority-type connotation, contempt, dismissal or disgust towards them.
Labelling ‘Newsworthy’ Content
Zuckerberg also introduced labelling of newsworthy content as Facebook is said to commence tagging their content which remains published – due to it being deemed newsworthy by internal authorities. This is so people can remain in-the-know and appropriately judge content as a credible resource of accurate information.
Zero-Tolerance In Problematic Content
Zuckerberg additionally claimed that they would ‘allow people to share this content to condemn it, just like they do with other problematic content.’
In Zuckerberg’s own opinion, this is an integral part of how people can decide what’s acceptable in society. Facebook will hence label shared content which may violate these policies. Furthermore, he pointed out (again) that there will be no tolerance, nor exception towards content promoting violence, voter suppression or any exemptions for any personalities or groups.
Investing In Similar Technological Upgrades /Innovations
Zuckerberg claimed an intention for further investments towards the development of tools and technologies which would efficiently detect /remove hate-speech.
