India and Fake News - Facebook's Biggest Customer

Recommended Posts

With 340 million users, India is Facebook biggest market. US is a distance 2nd at 190 million

A Report called The Facebook Papers, recently obtained by New York Times and other US publications. They show the social media giant struggling to tame the avalanche of fake news, hate speech, and inflammatory content in languages from English to Hindi.

This goes beyond the FB - With a surfeit of hate speech, trolling and attacks on minorities and women, Indian Twitter is a polarised and dark place. WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned messaging service, remains the largest carrier of fake news and hoaxes in its biggest market. YouTube, owned by Google, hosts a lot of fake news and controversial content,

Delhi violence: Facebook has fact-checkers for only 11 of 20 Indian languages, official tells panel.

The Delhi Assembly’s committee is conducting an inquiry into the communal violence that took place in the national capital in February 2020.

53 people, mostly Muslims, had died after clashes broke about between supporters of the Citizenship Amendment Act and those opposing it. The Act had triggered protests across the country as it introduced religious criteria for Indian citizenship for the first time.

After the clashes, allegations had emerged that Facebook’s laxity in implementing hate speech rules and policies on the social media platform had contributed to the violence.

If Facebook cooperated with China in 2009 when it was used as a platform for terrorists to facilitate attacks on Xinjiang, they won't be banned in the first place.

China wanted the names of those terrorists but Zuc said no.

I was about to share the trigger event why FB was banned in China since 2009 - You beat me to it . 👍   For those who are clueless - this was how BBC reported the mass riot 12 years ago in Urumqi that killed nearly 200 - That was a few years before rise of ISIS and Xinjang "genocide" becomes one of US Gov propaganda on China. -  https://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-xinjiang-internet-idUSTRE5651K420090706

What if similar tragedy happens in Singapore because of Facebook ? POFMA anyone ?😜
