Inside Facebook: Secrets of a Social Network

A fly on the wall inside Facebook's moderating HQ

Inside Facebook: Secrets of a Social Network Facebook has over two billion users, all producing and sharing content. Most of it is harmless, but some of it is not. How does Facebook regulate content encouraging child abuse, animal cruelty, self-harm and hate speech? This alarming documentary offers unique undercover access to Facebook’s moderating hub. It presents a disturbing picture of an organisation putting money before morality and for whom extreme content equals extreme profits.
