Stemming the Tidal Wave of Hate: Israeli Government Eyes Making Facebook Legally Liable for User Incitement – Episode 30

October 14, 2021

By a large margin, Facebook is the world’s largest social media platform, with about two billion users around the world – that’s one in four human beings alive today.

Unfortunately, Facebook is also home to an enormous amount of hatred and disinformation. And while governments around the world have struggled with how to manage Facebook, Israel, as always, is at the forefront.

In recent days, Israel has reportedly launched a task force aimed at identifying how Facebook can be made legally liable for hatred which is disseminated on its platform.

In this episode of the Honest Report podcast, we discuss this ground-breaking Israeli effort, and just how bad hatred is on Facebook.
