A huge network of volunteers is fighting hate speech on Facebook using closed groupsRead full story
Bravo! #IAmHere is an international movement working to find and combat hate speech on the platform. Members spend their spare time scanning Facebook for conversations happening on big pages, often run by mainstream media organisations, which are overwhelmed with racist, misogynistic or homophobic comments.
I wonder if GlobalCoin will create a habit of tipping people like this? You could imagine a philanthropist dropping some cash in their group and divvying it up among members.
This very commendable effort demonstrates the power of the crowd. Constructive and positive in their efforts. The saddest part of this is that with some minimal investment in machine learning and robotic process automation, much of this human curation and work could be augmented and we could see a force multiplier for good. In the meantime a phenomenal effort. Kudos!!
This is a big part of what I do with my page. I've noticed, and friended, others of a like mind. It never occurred to me to organize...
I'll be going to Facebook now and search it out! 😍😘😇
It is a step forward.
Bigotry should be shown for what it is in schools at every level.
