Facebook, for example, said it took action against 2.5 million hate speech posts in the first quarter of 2018, an increase from 56 percent in the previous quarter, attributing the uptick in improved detection methods.
Even after all that disabling, though, Facebook has said that 3 percent to 4 percent of its active monthly users are fake, meaning up to 88 million fake accounts slip through.
Its systems spotted almost 100 percent of spam and terrorist propaganda, almost 99 percent of fake accounts and around 96 percent of posts with adult nudity and sexual activity.
The social media website claimed to have disabled 583 million fake accounts.
Facebook released its Community Standards Enforcement Report to showcase what the company done to protect its users.
Facebook is sharing figures relating to the removal of hate speech and other content for the first time.
On Tuesday, May 15, Guy Rosen, Facebook's Vice President of Product Management, posted a blog post on the company's newsroom. For the most part, it has not provided more details on the hiring plan, including how many will be full-time Facebook employees and how many will be contractors. As indicated by the article, by Sheera Frenkel, Facebook has been under pressure to remove nudity, violence and hate speech, among other "inflammatory content".
The company estimated that for every 10,000 pieces of content seen on Facebook overall, between seven and nine of them violated its adult nudity and pornography standards.

After admitting that it let Cambridge Analytica use its network to grab unwitting users' data, Facebook has been on thin ice with both consumers and government officials.
Now, however, artificial intelligence technology does much of that work.
Facebook today revealed for the first time how much sex, violence and terrorist, propaganda has infiltrated the platform-and whether the company has successfully taken the content down.
While Facebook uses what it calls "detection technology" to root out offending posts and profiles, the software has difficulty detecting hate speech. The report stated that it took down 837 million pieces of spam in the first quarter of 2018.
- 836 million instances of spam had action taken against them. Just 38% of that content was "flagged" by the company's automated technology, requiring the remaining content to be discovered and flagged by humans.
"As Mark said at F8 we have a lot of work still to do to prevent abuse", he said.
But that's not to say the relatively low number is due to an defect from Facebook.
Facebook has come under fire for showing too much zeal on this front, such as removing images of artwork tolerated under its own rules.
