Facebook Undergoes Independent Civil Rights Audit

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Facebook underwent an independent audit regarding the progress it has made in protecting civil rights, including in counteracting hateful speech. This comes as some companies have mounted an advertising boycott of the social media platform in protest of what they argue to be lacking regulations on hateful speech and conduct. Right-rated voices were more likely to laud Facebook for purportedly not submitting to pressure to censor free speech. Left-rated voices were more likely to condemn Facebook and show support for the boycott, arguing that the company is not using its full power to fight purported misuse of its platform.
