Facebook Removes More Extremist Material After EU Call
Facebook Removes More Extremist Material After EU Call. In the first three months of the year Facebook has removed 1.9 million items with an extremist content or provided a warning label, reported by Fortune News.
The content was related to Islamic State or al-Qaeda. The Facebook has announced this on Monday. The number of detected unwanted pieces is about double compared to the previous quarter.
The European Union has put pressure on several social networks such as Facebook to remove extremist statements from the site faster. Otherwise, legal measures will be taken to enforce this.
Since then, the companies have been struggling to show that progress is being made in this area.
