Facebook removed more than 1 million groups and 13.5 million pieces of content in groups for hate speech in the past year, the company said today. These figures were released alongside new policies meant to “keep groups safe,” including a new commitment to limit the spread of health advice on the platform.
It’s not clear how many groups were removed for hate speech previously. This is the “very first time” Facebook has broken out “safety stats” for groups, Facebook spokesperson Leonard Lam confirmed to Adweek.
