UPD: 15/05/2015 The Facebook segment is moderated by a representative office in Dublin: we do not have a Russian office, - Zuckerberg
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg promised to consider the possibility of opening a Facebook office in Ukraine. At the same time, he denied the statement that the moderation of the messages of Ukrainian users of the social network is made by the Russian office, since the Facebook administration does not exist in Russia. The moderation is carried out by employees of the company's representative office in Dublin, who speak the language in which the message was made.
On Thursday, May 14, in the evening local time, the next online session of questions and answers began with the question asked by the Ukrainians. The moderator of the meeting said that the most popular issue, which collected 45 thousand likes, was exactly the question about Ukraine. User Grigory Kupershmidt complained of injustice when blocking pages and messages from Facebook, explaining this by the fact that the Ukrainian segment is in charge of Russian management.
According to the head of the company Fecebook, he personally reviewed what is at stake, before giving an answer. Mark Zuckerberg commented that there were indeed several reports that they decided to remove for violating the rules prohibiting the use of "hate speech" against another nationality.
"Unfortunately, there are several articles that violated this rule.People complained, and we looked through these records and determined that some of these messages contained offensive language against some Russians, and we took them off," explained the head of Facebook.
He also assured that in Russia there is no Facebook administration, which would moderate the Ukrainian segment of the network.
"There were also questions, notes made by Ukrainians, moderated by Russians at a time when conflict is continuing between Ukraine and Russia, which is not true - we do not have such a Russian office, so anyone who thinks that the moderation comes from the Russian office of anti -Ukrainian moderators, is mistaken, "Zuckerberg assured.
He explained that moderation is carried out by employees of the company's representative office in Dublin who speak the language in which the message was made. However, he added that there was an error in the system, due to which the authors of individual messages were mistakenly informed of the wrong reason - the presence of nudity in images instead of the vocabulary of hatred. For this mistake, Facebook apologized, said Mark.
After that, Zuckerberg also answered the question of Ukrainian President Poroshenko about the possibility of opening a Facebook representation in Ukraine. He said that over time this possibility can be considered, but explained that the expediency lies in the development of the company, in particular, software development.
