    Social Items


Facebook is under fire yet again – this time for hate speech. It has come to light that many companies are removing their ads from Facebook after the creation of “Stop Hate for Profit” boycott. The boycott emerged to the surface on the platform whose objective is to address the hate speech and racism on the platform and its damaging effect on the society.
The top companies, like Verizon, HP, Unilever, and other global brands, have joined the campaign, which has amassed over 160 companies to its cause. Hate speech has been implied continuously on the platform with little to no repercussions to the culprit. The campaign has been globalized, which is having a negative impact on Facebook’s revenue.

Data analytics have proven that Facebook is a platform where online harassment is widespread. More than 77% of people in a survey said that they had been harassed on Facebook at least once. This is due to the fact that Facebook has acted as a safe haven for many hate groups and targeted online harassments for race, religion, sexuality, political views, and whatnot.

Online harassment is present at almost every online platform, but the following infographic tells us how much hate speech Facebook is allowing as compared to others.
