Hate speech on social media platform Facebook rose nearly 37.82 percent in April, and violent and provocative content on Instagram rose 86 percent, according to a monthly report published by Meta.
Much of the content of the report is based on identification by social media platforms before users report.
According to a report released May 31, Facebook identified 53,200 hate speech statements in April, up 37.82 percent from 38,600 in March, according to which the platform took action.
The report shows that Instagram employed 77,000 violence and provocation-related content in April, compared to 41,300 in March.
“We measure the number of pieces of content (such as posts, photos, videos or comments) that we take measures to go against our standards. This metric shows the scale of our enforcement activity.
“Taking action may include removing certain content from Facebook or Instagram or covering with caution photos or videos that may offend some listeners,” the report said.
