Facebook failing at managing hate speech in Myanmar

Aug 16, 2018 11:44 IST

A recent Reuters special report has highlighted Facebook's lack of management with regards to hate speech against the Rohingya community and Muslims in Myanmar. The report reveals how the platform still relies on users to report hate speech, since its systems struggle to interpret Burmese text. Despite the issue being widely reported by the UN, the company doesn't have a single employee in the country, and hired its first two Manila-based Burmese speakers only three years ago.
