Facebook: Hate Speech Accounts for 10 or 11 of Every 10,000 Pieces of Content Viewed

The social network’s AI systems proactively detect about 95% of removed posts

'While we are constantly improving our AI tools, they are far from perfect,' CTO Mike Schroepfer said Facebook

Facebook began measuring the prevalence of hate speech on its platform globally in the November 2020 edition of its Community Standards Enforcement Report, pegging it at 0.10% to 0.11%, or 10 to 11 views of hate speech for every 10,000 views of content.
