AWForward: Building a Safer Future

At Facebook, we know that questions remain around how we keep our platform safe, and provide invaluable products and services for brands, agencies and individuals. That’s why we’ve committed huge amounts of time and resources to assuring safety online. This session will answer fundamental questions about this work, and make sense of common misconceptions.

How does Facebook decide what content should be removed, and what should remain on its platforms? How is Facebook managing bullying, hate speech and harassment? How are brands kept safe when advertising? And why did Facebook decide to establish an Oversight Board to manage difficult questions around freedom of expression? In this session, you’ll have a chance to see under the hood of the world’s largest social media brand as experts explain what it takes to help keep 3bn people safe from online harm.
