Antisemitisme op Facebook onderzocht

 

Het mag niet echt verbazen, gezien de vele voorbeelden van haatpagina’s op facebook, maar antisemitisme is dus ook daar een probleem. Ik kan me het aantal keren niet herinneren dat ik een oproep zag om een bepaalde pagina te rapporteren, waar dan de meest walgelijke foto’s en cartoons staan. Pagina’s met fraaie namen als ‘wipe Israel off the map’ ‘fuck Israel’, ‘to hell with Israel’ etc. vol met cartoons en Turkse of Arabische teksten met een hoop !!!!!! erachter.

Er is nu dus een officieel rapport, dat wat velen van ons al lang zagen, nu netjes in kaart heeft gebracht met een lijstje fraaie aanbevelingen:

 

·        OHPI calls on Facebook to recognise the symbolism of Anne Frank in relation to theHolocaust and to commit to educating all review staff to recognise her picture and toremove memes that make use of it.

·        OHPI calls on Facebook to recognise the use of Nazi Symbolism with reference to theState of Israel or Jewish people collectively or individually as a form of hate speech.

·        OHPI calls on Facebook to recognise calls for Israel’s destruction as a form of hatespeech and to remove them from the platform.

·        OHPI calls on Facebook to adopt the Working Definition of Antisemitism from theFundamental Rights Agency of the EU as a tool to assist in the recognition of antisemitism.

·        OHPI calls on Facebook to immediately remove all pages about the Protocols of theElders of Zion, starting with those listed in this report.

·        OHPI calls on Facebook to educate their review staff so that in future they can recognise the Protocols of the Elders of Zion as antisemitic hate speech and correctlyrespond to future reports related to similar content.

 

General recommendations to mitigate against the spread of Hate Speech

# Recommendation Page

·        OHPI calls on Facebook to establish constructive channels of dialogue for experts, andto use these channels to improve its recognition of hate speech. This should be part of a learning process for Facebook and not simply a process to remove specific items of content or resolve specific complaints. The process should be open to any expert ableto demonstrate their competence.

·        OHPI recommends that the following factors be used to determine how well an onlineplatform is removing online hate:

·        1. How easily users can report content

·        2. How quickly the platform responds to user reports

·        3. How accurately the platform responds to reports

·        4. How well the platform recognises and learns from mistakes in its initialresponse

·        5. How well the platform mitigates against repeat offenders (and specificallyincluding those operating across multiple accounts)

·        6. How well the platform mitigates against repeated posting of the same hatespeech by different people

·        OHPI recommends Facebook review its reporting facilities in a holistic manner.

 

Uit deze lijst blijkt duidelijk hoe onwetend men blijkbaar nu is. Het is daarbij volkomen onduidelijk wie de mensen zijn die de meldingen en klachten van facebookgebruikers afhandelen, en hoe een en ander georganiseerd is en waar men precies de grens legt.

Major report released on anti-semitism in Facebook

http://elderofziyon.blogspot.nl/2013/03/major-report-released-on-anti-semitism.html

The Online Hate Prevention Institute released a major new report into antisemitism on Facebook to coincide with the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which is today.

There are some stunning examples in the report of truly vile anti-semitic imagery in Facebook. Many have been removed by Facebook but only when they saw an advanced version of this report or saw mention of the offending items in the media, but they had previously responded that it didn't violate their standards. Here is one example that was only deleted after publicity:


Others are still on Facebook:

The report argues that Facebook is using a very narrow definition of anti-semitism, allowing many hateful cartoons and memes to be published there.
