Facebook’s content policy guidelines leaked to The Guardian

Facebook’s ‘internal rulebook’ has been revealed in a Guardian investigation, which contains insights into Facebook’s guidelines related to the moderation of issues including violence, hate speech, terrorism, pornography, racism, and self-harm. These Facebook Files demonstrate the complexities of assessing harmful content. One of the major findings of the files is Facebook’s moderation of revenge pornography, which amounts to nearly 54,000 cases a month, and ‘sextortion’, for which 14,130 accounts have been disabled. This is reportedly the area ‘where moderators make most mistakes’.
