Analyze: Mark Zuckerberg's big question about the part of Facebook in Burma
Prior to Facebook founding Mark Zuckerberg's performance on Capitol Hill this weekend, numerous civil society organisations and civil society groups in Myanmar have joined US legislators in a in-depth discussion on how the Facebook community has contributed to the outcry. Sent to Sugarberg's interviewing US political leadership on Tuesday and Wednesday, the paper shows a number of allegations of Facebook's carelessness, which they say have contributed to driving forward domestic violent behaviour in the South East Asia people.
The film shows a footage divided by a Nazi friar on Facebook in January 2016 that provokes contentious assassination and robbery of a Burmese girl. The organisations say that it took three whole working day to remove the tape, even though it was "clearly intended to stir up further tension between Buddhists and Islamic communities".
" According to the slideshow, the movie was seen more than 120,000 people before it was taken off Facebook. In fact, despite the deletion of the initial videos, the groups found photocopies of them in at least eight places on Facebook. The groups referred in other cases to an article on Facebook in November 2016 in which a distinguished reporter who works for foreign journalists was described as a "terrorist" and urged to die.
It was not found that the posting violated the fellowship norms of the online communities, but it was later withdrawn when Facebook reps were directly approached, the paper said. They also quoted the Facebook page of the nationalistic Buddhist friar U Wirathu. Myanmar should be a top of the list in Facebook's survey because "life is at stake " in a recent paper to US legislators.
" You referred to a recent United Nations investigators' declaration that Facebook had" taken a decisive role" in supposed ethnical cleansings in the state. Htaike Htaike, Executive of the Myanmar ICT for Development Organization, said in a telephone conversation that the US pressures were necessary after years of Facebook-promise.
"Following these never-ending pledges, we believe that the US Congress can really help Facebook do something," she said. - If you have a clear violation of your own community standards, what specific measures will you take to make sure that those contents are immediately deleted? - Countrys like Germany demand that Facebook hatred speeches be deleted or fined within 24hrs.
Are you committed to eliminating all calls for force in Myanmar within 24h? Who will you choose to be removed and what specific measures will you take to eliminate people who violate your community standards? Zuckerberg's performance on Capitol Hill this weekend comes as the US sociomedia colossus from the supposed abuse of its platforms for exerting clout in the 2016 US elections.
In the past months it became known that a policy consulting company commissioned by the Donald Trump initiative and other Republicans had illegally obtained unauthorized entry to 87 million Facebook accounts, 71 million of them from the United States. "I' ve launched Facebook, I' m in charge of it, and I' m in charge of what happens here," the Facebook board states.
Facebook's part in smaller nations like Myanmar is not directly mentioned. Burma is just a small part of Facebook's huge worldwide store. In Myanmar, however, the community networking has had a strong impact on Myanmar after years of exclusion and opening up to the rest of the population. A survey found that 38% of Facebook visitors in Myanmar received the most, maybe all, messages from the site.
This US socio-medial giants was charged with disseminating "fake news" that sparked off ethical tension between the country's main stream of Buddhists and its Moslem minorities. One of Burma's organizations' founders said in an e-mail that they had corresponded with a number of senior members about Zuckerberg's comment.
"So we would be very shocked if one or more of our senior secretaries did not ask about Myanmar," said David Madden of Phandeeyar, a technology leader who worked with Facebook to design his Burmese-speaking communities. Senator Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., who also serves on the Justice Committee, questioned Facebook's General Council last October about his Myanmar rôle.
Facebook CEO replied with a face-to-face note to the groups after they posted an open letter accusing him of falsely portraying Facebook's achievements in fighting hatred speeches in Myanmar during a recent press briefing. "Although the tension in Myanmar is particularly acute, opponents in other non-Western nations have been arguing that Facebook is closing its eyes to the abuse of its site.
A number of Vietnam' s political campaigners and independents in the press published their own open letters to Zuckerberg on Monday, pointing to bank accounts in the state. "Facebook runs the risk of allowing governments to censor and be accomplices without a subtle approach," the Vietnamesi groups said. Mr Htaike Htaike said it was clear that Facebook issues were a worldwide one.
