And three weeks ago, for the first time, we published the internal guidelines we use to enforce those standards.

The report highlights six key areas: fake accounts, spam, adult nudity and sexual activity, graphic violence, terrorist propaganda and hate speech. Today's report said Facebook disabled 583 million fake accounts during the first three months of this year, down from 694 million during the previous quarter.

Even though it has been focusing on shutting down bogus accounts, Facebook has said that 3 to 4 per cent of its active monthly users are fake.

Other findings in a release from Facebook showed that the company took down 21 million posts for adult nudity.

Spam continues to be a problem at Facebook and a whopping 837 million pieces were removed from its service during the first quarter.

Improved technology using artificial intelligence had helped it act on 3.4 million posts containing graphic violence, almost three times more than it had in the last quarter of 2017.

In the United Kingdom, Facebook this week again resisted a request from British lawmakers to testify as part of their investigation into Cambridge Analytica, a political consultancy that improperly accessed personal information about 87 million of the social site's users.

The company estimated that for every 10,000 pieces of content seen on Facebook overall, between seven and nine of them violated its adult nudity and pornography standards.

"We have a lot of work still to do to prevent abuse", Zuckerberg said".

Some 99.5 percent of the terrorism-related content was flagged by artificial intelligence technology.

If a Facebook user makes a post speaking about their experience being called a slur in public, using the word in order to make a greater impact, does their post constitute hate speech? And more generally, as I explained last week, technology needs large amounts of training data to recognize meaningful patterns of behavior, which we often lack in less widely used languages or for cases that are not often reported. "It's partly that technology like artificial intelligence, while promising, is still years away from being effective for most bad content because context is so important". Facebook is expected to host summits in India, Singapore, and the U.S.

The committee has also urged Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg to appear before them, adding that it would be open to taking evidence from the billionaire company founder via video link if he would not attend in person. It provided a quarter-to-quarter comparison in its content-filtering efforts.
