facebook is all you believe the most powerful company in the world one point four billion people use it every day more than the population of any country on earth except china the story that you created represent the american dream you know that our mission at facebook is to help connect everyone in the world we take that responsibility very seriously but a series of recent scandals has exposed problems of the haunts of the social network ministers that coburg i think we all agree that what happened here was baguio knowledge it was a breach of trust and i just want to be clear that you're going to take early action in this film we go into a company with facebook's content moderation is to reveal how facebook decides what you can see that plan. it's good for you to refer to them so their birth for them go to school. so. it's pretty says with billions of pieces of combs
and it's uploaded every day these decisions how far reaching consequences. of the woods on you is not necessarily your beliefs but how they're made has been shrouded in secrecy until now you shouldn't be speaking about record basis of topics ok you know just goes on probation it does not. from violence. to hate speech we reveal how facebook deals with extreme forms of. relief for through three. or four. k. through her mother who for schools with graphic videos routinely left homeless sites she has to change it especially for the face of
a selfless. and far right groups getting special protection over sort of loaf all over switcheroo the reversers which is facebook pushing profits before safety if you start censoring trigger some people lose interest in the growth process it's all it's all a big one of the. this isn't even a facebook to bring the hotels that are at the meeting not the whole company this year facebook published a set of rules about what content is allowed on this platform. to be open i'll reserve the walls and gates faith and trust in facebook that's the reason i need to break into bar men that want that we work or. moderations have told us there are serious problems with the way these rules are applied so we're going to companies
facebook to launch a sense of the u.k. content moderation in something. facebook has outsourced a lot of its activity our reporter was working for a company called c.p.l. resources and this piece of policy that we should be speaking about record basis of topics ok to be you know to just go for patient they've got knocked off facebook a highly secretive about the world. so again no matter how strong you are sure that you don't actually reveal the information or what you actually do we hear. so. give you the first call are going to stop what you're going to do it was a call to whatever. the phone fiscal policies. or at least what we are. every week millions of pieces of content to reports it's
a facebook by users who think they should be deleted. so these are some of the things that these you know are the photos that we're going to delete because these . people's ears are not covered by anything including the phone and i don't know a lot it's completely open so in that case we're going to go. unlike other media that there is little regulation restricting what can appear on the social network so the decision to delete or ignore is entirely up to facebook. and it started off in us colleges and then we launched in us high schools in a little bit and us corporations and since when we opened up the site actually last ember a sec.
