Facebook: Companies need better systems to counter harmful content
The latest figures show there are 4.6 billion people worldwide using the internet - 316 million of them joining in the last 12 months alone.
Countering harmful content online has been a focus of The Global Alliance for Responsible Media (including Partners Facebook, Google, Procter & Gamble, Unilever, Omnicom and more) which has partnered with the Forum to improve the safety of digital environments, addressing harmful and misleading media while protecting consumers and brands.
It was also the centre of a panel at GTGS today - Countering Harmful Content.
Simon Milner, Vice-President, Public Policy, Asia-Pacific, Facebook Inc. said companies need to have measurement and be transparent, but they also wanted to see regulation that holds business to account - what he called a systems-based approach.
