Facebook is referring our decision to indefinitely suspend former President Trump’s Facebook & Instagram accounts to the independent @OversightBoard. Today’s announcement does not reinstate his access. We hope & expect the board will confirm our decision.

We believe the risks of allowing President Trump to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great, so we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks.

This is an emergency situation and we are taking appropriate emergency measures, including removing President Trump's video. We removed it because on balance we believe it contributes to rather than diminishes the risk of ongoing violence.

In 2020Q3, hate speech prevalence was 0.10-0.11%. Our work aims to minimize the prevalence of hate speech, while also reducing mistakes we make when removing content. More details on our work on hate speech here: (6/7)

We're committed to continue providing transparency into our work to fight harmful content. For more details, the full data set is here. We're now also including a CSV export of the data, to help researchers who want to run their own analyses. (7/7)

We sample content viewed on our platform to calculate what percent violates our policies. We focus on views - how much content is seen - because some posts could go viral and get lots of distribution, whereas others could be online for a long time and not be seen by anyone (5/7)

When we began reporting, our proactive rate for hate speech in 2017Q4 was 24%, i.e. of the hate speech we remove, 24% was found proactively before a user report. Today, we're at 95% on both FB and IG, i.e. of content removed as hate speech, 95% was detected by us (3/7)

These metrics indicate progress on catching harmful content, but the question is: what do we miss? That's where prevalence comes in, and it's why we consider it the most important metric. Prevalence is like an air quality test to measure pollution: (4/7)

New from Facebook tonight: Updated company blog confirms what my empty QAnon lists have shown—the August purge has been pretty successful. 1,700 Pages, 5,600 Groups and about 18,700 Instagram accounts dedicated to Q removed. 👋🏻

All of this work builds on more than three years of preparations to put in place the right measures to help secure this election on our platforms. 7/7

This is part of our ongoing work to crack down on attempts to suppress the vote. From March - September of this year, we have removed more than 120,000 pieces of Facebook and Instagram content in the US for violating our voter interference policies. 6/7

We are also expanding our voter interference rules to prohibit calls for people to engage in poll watching that use militarized language or where the goal is to intimidate, control, or display power over election officials or voters. 5/7

In addition to the substantial work we've already done to prepare for this election, today we shared that we'll temporarily stop running social issue, electoral, and political ads in the US after the polls close on November 3, to reduce opportunities for confusion or abuse. 4/7

Additionally, if a candidate or party posts with a premature declaration of victory before a race is called, labels will be applied to the posts making it clear that counting is still in progress and no winner has been determined. 3/7
