UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Facebook will ban the endorsement and praise of white supremacy as well as manifestations of racism as part of a campaign against hate speech.
The ban will be imposed starting next week on the world’s first social networking platform and widespread application of images.
“It is clear that these concepts are deeply connected with organized hate groups and have no place on our sites,” the Blue Web site said in a statement.
Facebook’s policies have already banned publications supporting the supremacy of the white element as part of an effort to stop people’s hatred of ethnicity, ethnicity and religion.
“While people will still be able to show pride in their ethnic heritage, we will not tolerate praise or support for nationalism and white separatism,” Facebook said.
He added that people entering terms related to the supremacy of the white race would get results that would refer them to sites such as “Life After Hate” which focuses on helping people to move away from these groups.
Amid pressure from governments around the world, Facebook has over the past few years strengthened artificial intelligence mechanisms to find and remove content that supports hatred while keeping open to freedom of expression.
Facebook said the new ban would not apply to subjects such as US pride and the Basque separatism, “an important part of the people’s identity.”
