Meta deletes more than 23.6 million posts on Facebook and Instagram in India in February
Between February 1 and February 28, Meta received 478 reports through India’s grievance mechanism and responded to 100% of those reports.
Among these reports, the social network provided tools to users to solve their problems in 402 cases. These include pre-established channels to report content for specific breaches, self-remediation streams where they can upload their data, ways to fix account takeover issues, and more.
“The report outlines our efforts to remove harmful content from Facebook and Instagram and demonstrates our continued commitment to making Facebook and Instagram safe and inclusive,” the company said.
“We use a combination of artificial intelligence, reports from our community, and review by our teams to identify and review content against our policies,” he added.
Meta handled a whopping 15.4 million spam content, 2.4 million violent and graphic content, and 1.4 million content related to adult nudity and sexual activity, among others.
“We measure the number of pieces of content (such as posts, photos, videos or comments) and take action to go against our standards,” he said.
In January, Meta removed over 11.6 million content items in 13 policies for Facebook and over 3.2 million content items in 12 policies for Instagram.
WhatsApp banned 1,426,000 bad accounts in India in the month of February under new IT rules of 2021. The company received 335 grievance reports from the country in the same month and took action on 21 of them.
Under the new 2021 IT rules, major digital and social media platforms – with over 5 million users – must publish monthly compliance reports.
