Facebook statements August-October 2011

October 14, 2011

17 August 2011

‘We want Facebook to be a place where people can openly discuss issues and express their views whilst respecting the rights and feeling of others.

We have now more than 750m people around the world of varying opinions and ideals using Facebook as a place to discuss and share things that are important to them.

We sometimes find people discussing and posting about controversial topics.

It is very important to point out that what one person finds offensive another can find entertaining – just as telling a rude joke won’t get you thrown out of your local pub, it won’t get you thrown off Facebook.’

(Given to the Annie Othen Show, BBC WM Radio, 17.8.11)

30 September 2011

Direct statements of hate against particular communities violate our statement of rights and responsibilities and are removed when reported to us,” Facebook said. “However, groups that express an opinion on a state, institution, or set of beliefs – even if that opinion is outrageous or offensive to some – do not by themselves violate our policies”.

(Given to Guardian 30/9/11)

12 October 2011

There is no place on Facebook for content that is hateful, threatening, or incites violence, and we encourage users to report pages, posts or users who violate our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. [However] we want Facebook to be a place where people can openly discuss issues and express their views. Groups or pages that express an opinion on a state, institution, or set of beliefs – even if that opinion is outrageous or offensive to some – do not by themselves violate our policies.

(Given to Women’s Views on News 12.10.11)
