Facebook has recently announced its new updates for the content moderation queue system. This initiative is expected to lead to significant enhancements in slowing down the spread of harmful content – while addressing the worst-case reports on the platform.
Previously, the Facebook moderators used to review posts chronologically, in the order, they were reported. Now, the social platform wants to ensure the most important posts to be seen first.
The latest feature utilizes improved technology and machine learning approaches for categorizing the reported content. This amalgam will prioritize the posts based on the primary three criteria – severity, virality, and likelihood of breaking the regulations.
