WHAT HAPPENED

1. From Wednesday by way of Saturday there was a number of content material circulating which implied fraud within the election, at round 10% of all civic content material and 1-2% of all US VPVs. There was additionally a fringe of incitement to violence.

2. There have been dozens of staff monitoring this, and FB launched ~15 measures previous to the election, and one other ~15 within the days afterwards. A lot of the measures made existings processes extra aggressive: e.g. by reducing thresholds, by making penalties extra extreme, or increasing eligibility for present measures. Some measures had been qualitative: reclassifying sure sorts of content material as violating, which had not been earlier than.

3. I’d guess these measures diminished prevalence of violating content material by not less than 2X. Nonetheless they’d collateral injury (eradicating and demoting non-violating content material), and the episode triggered noticeable resentment by Republican Fb customers who really feel they’re being unfairly focused.
