Facebook is asking some U.S. users whether they may have been presented to radical substance, or on the off chance that they are stressed that somebody they know may be turning into a fanatic.
The interpersonal organization said the questions are important for a trial of its Redirect Initiative, which expects to battle fierce radicalism, the organization affirmed Thursday.
“We are banding together with NGOs (non-administrative associations) and scholastic specialists in this space and desire to have more to partake later on,” a Facebook representative said in a messaged explanation.
The test comes as the world’s biggest online media network keeps on confronting extraordinary investigation from pundits, specialists and lawmakers to check radicalism across its foundation. A nearer eye has been put on Facebook in the U.S. after the dangerous revolt at the Capitol on Jan. 6 when allies of then-President Donald Trump attempted to keep Congress from guaranteeing Joe Biden’s administration.
That same query said, “We care about preventing extremism on Facebook. Others in your situation have received confidential support.”
Another query informs users that they may have been recently exposed to extremist content.
“Violent groups try to manipulate your anger and disappointment,” Facebook asks. “You can take action now to protect yourself and others.”
Both queries direct users to a support page.
Facebook has repeatedly vowed “to enforce our policies and will remove content and accounts that violate our rules. We are providing these additional resources to give people exposed to this content more information and help others.”
