Meanwhile, Facebook in Q1 2018 flagged 1.9 million terrorism-related posts, from related to ISIS, al-Qaeda and affiliated groups, up from 1.1 million in Q4 2017.

This was up from 0.16-0.19% in the previous three months.

For hate speech, "our technology still doesn't work that well and so it needs to be checked by our review teams", VP of product management Guy Rosen wrote in a separate post.

Nearly 86 per cent was found by the firm's technology before it was reported by users.

Facebook has made an effort of late to be more transparent about issues on its platform.

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.

That's up from 0.06-0.08% during the last three months of 2017. It took down 2.5 million pieces of hate speech during the period, only 38% of which was flagged by its algorithms.

The social network estimates that it found and flagged 85% of that content prior to users seeing and reporting it - a higher level than previously due to technological advances.

This, the company says, is because there is little of it in the first place and because most is removed before it is seen.

The show comes from executive producer Charlie Day (" It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia "). And this, for " Gotham " fans: Fox announced a new, and final, 13-episode season.

The figure represents between 0.22 and 0.27 percent of the total content viewed by Facebook's more than two billion users from January through March.

Facebook pulled or slapped warnings on almost 30 million posts containing sexual or violent images, terrorist propaganda or hate speech in the first three months of 2018, the social media giant said Tuesday, May 15.

The inappropriate content includes vilification, graphic violence, adult nudity and sexual activity, terrorist propaganda, spam and fake accounts.

It attributed the increase to the enhanced use of photo detection technology.

"It may take a human to understand and accurately interpret nuances like. self-referential comments or sarcasm", the report said, noting that Facebook aims to "protect and respect both expression and personal safety".

Facebook shares slid as much as 2% Tuesday morning after it announced it had disabled 583 million fake accounts over the last three months.

The company previously enforced community standards by having users report violations and trained staff then deal with them. "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".

"(And) technology needs large amounts of training data to recognise meaningful patterns of behaviour, which we often lack in less widely used languages", Mr Rosen said.

The social network says when action is taken on flagged content it does not necessarily mean it has been taken down.
