Facebook takes down 12M hateful comments

Facebook said it took down more than 12 million posts that endorsed or represented ISIS and al-Qaeda from its network between April and September as part of an effort to rid its service of harmful content.

"We measure how many pieces of content (such as posts, images, videos or comments) we took action on because they went against our
standards for terrorist propaganda, specifically related to ISIS, al-Qaeda and their affiliates," tech giant said.

"Terrorists are always looking to circumvent our detection and we need to counter such attacks with improvements in technology, training, and process," Facebook added.
