Facebook creates civil rights task force

Facebook creates civil rights task force

Facebook is making an internal civil rights task force permanent, COO Sheryl Sandberg said in a blog post Sunday. The task force will focus on Facebook’s content policies, the fairness of its AI, and issues regarding privacy and elections. The task force, as well as recommendations on policing hate speech, were included in the company’s second progress report on its civil rights audit.

So just like the leaked Google video from Veritas. "We have to implement this before we get broken up because then we can't prevent 2016". And "if you voted Trump then you don't have our views of fairness"
