And Instagram too. There's a piece in the times today.

A researcher posed as a man who showed signs of hostility to women.
Very soon, Facebook was recommending pages hostile to women and then got worse.

97% of accounts reported for misogynistic abuse remain open.

It's inexcusable.

Facebook has had multiple problems with its AI and algorithms, but according to Elon Musk, Zuckerberg doesn't think its a problem.

"I've talked to Mark about this (AI). His understanding of the subject is limited," Musk tweeted last week. The tweet came after Zuckerberg, during a Facebook livestream earlier this month, castigated Musk for arguing that care and regulation was needed to safeguard the future if AI becomes mainstream.
"I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios -- I just, I don't understand it. It's really negative and in some ways I actually think it is pretty irresponsible," Zuckerberg said.

Musk has been speaking frequently on AI and has called its progress the "biggest risk we face as a civilisation". "AI is a rare case where we need to be proactive in regulation instead of reactive because if we're reactive in AI regulation it's too late," he said.''
