Facebook civil rights audit says white supremacy policy is ‘too narrow’

Over the last six months, Facebook has made changes around enforcing rules against hate speech, fighting discrimination in ads and protecting against misinformation and suppression, according to a new progress report on an audit led by former ACLU Washington Director Laura Murphy.

However, the report says Facebook’s policy is still “too narrow.” That’s because it solely prohibits explicit praise, support or representation of the terms “white nationalism” or “white separatism,” but does not technically prohibit references to those terms and ideologies.

The private rocket launch startup’s latest mission took off yesterday from the company’s private Launch Complex 1 in New Zealand.
