Facebook’s Report Shows Progress in Preventing Harmful Content
Facebook has released its industry-leading Community Standards Enforcement Report (CSER) (bit.ly/3fnFGGQ) for the first quarter of 2021. The report shares metrics on the progress made by Facebook in preventing and taking action on content that goes against its Community Standards while protecting the community’s safety, privacy, and dignity.
The new report includes data on how Facebook is performing in enforcing 12 of its policy areas on Facebook and 10 on Instagram for the January-March 2021 period. It shows some positive strides towards improvements in prevalence, providing greater transparency and accountability around content moderation operations across different Facebook products.
We’ve appointed EY to audit this latest report, as part of its commitment to independent oversight and verification of its performance.
