Facebook fights against harassment on its platforms

Social media giant Facebook on Wednesday said it tightened its rules against online harassment, as the social media giant battles to persuade authorities and public opinion of its positive role in society.

“We don’t allow harassment on our platform and when it does, we take action,” said Antigone Davis, director of security for the group, in a statement. The Californian firm, already heavily criticized by many authorities and NGOs, saw its reputation again tarnished by the revelations of a whistleblower, a former engineer who leaked documents to the press and was auditioned by a US parliamentary committee.

According to Frances Haugen, Facebook and its applications, including Instagram, put “profits above safety” for users.
