“In recent days, it has develop into clear that our methods to establish and remove hate speech have did not work as successfully as we would like, specifically around problems with gender-primarily based hate,” Levine’s statement stated on Tuesday.

“In some instances, content is not being eliminated as quick as we would like. In different circumstances, content that will have to be removed has now not been or has been evaluated using out of date criteria… We want to do higher — and we can.”

Fb introduced the change per week after a campaign prepared through the activist team Ladies, Motion & The Media, which claimed the social network “has long allowed content endorsing violence in opposition to Women.”

    I know if you join a Facebook Group you are a Member.
    If you join a Page you are a Fan.
    What is the difference between a Group and a Page ?

  2. Facebook sends me an email notice whenever any of my Facebook friends has a birthday. I would rather not receive notices sent through my personal email from Facebook when any of my Facebook friends has a birthday. Where exactly do I go on my Facebook account to change something so that Facebook will stop sending me email notices on my friends’ birthdays?

    Will it alert contacts that I have Facebook? Or will it just give me a list of my phone contacts who have Facebook? I ask this because I want to find the profile of an old friend, but don’t want other contacts to be alerted that I have Facebook, for obvious reasons like no one really uses it anymore. So will it alert them?

  5. On Facebook I clicked on desktop site, how do I change it back to mobile?

    I want to send my Facebook statuses to twitter but not the other way around. That is, I do not want my tweets going to my Facebook account but I want my Facebook statuses going to my twitter. Any help? Thanks.

    There are many facebook users who do not like the new profile and are not able to get rid of it. This seems to be a good way for facebook to lose a lot of users. I mean if there are those who like this profile, good for them. I just think its retarded there’s no choice to get rid of it after activating it. This just extremely pisses me off.
