Facebook tests warnings of extremism

“This test is part of our larger initiative to assess ways to provide resources and support to people on Facebook who may have been involved in or been exposed to extremist content or may know someone who is exposed. at risk, ”said a Facebook spokesman. The social network will work with NGOs and academic experts on this project. Screenshots of some pop-ups revealed what the messages would look like.

Facebook is testing a new feature that asks users if they’re worried that someone they know has started to become an extremist. Other users may receive a warning that they have been exposed to extremist content. The test messages are part of a Facebook redirection initiative aimed at fighting extremism, the BBC notes. Pop-ups redirect users to a help page. One of them reads: “Are you worried that someone you know is becoming an extremist?” “You may have been exposed to harmful extremist content,” said another statement. “Violence groups are trying to manipulate your anger and frustration. “You can take action now to protect yourself and others.”

Facebook said the tests identified both users who may have been exposed to extremist content and users who had previously been sanctioned for extremism on the platform. “What’s interesting about this approach is the idea that we don’t believe we’re influenced by what we see online, but other people are,” said Jess McBeat, an online safety consultant at the UK Safer Internet Center.
