Grab a coffee and let us read today’s Sunday Rundown #32 🙂

Facebook says it took down Trump ads because they used Nazi symbol

Facebook took action against ads run by President Trump’s re-election campaign for breaching its policies on hate. In detail, the ads featured an upside-down triangle.

The Anti-Defamation League said the triangle “is practically identical to that used by the Nazi regime to classify political prisoners in concentration camps.”

We removed these posts and ads for violating our policy against organised hate. Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group’s symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol.

Google, Facebook, and Twitter in the fight against coronavirus misinformation

The EU is stepping up efforts to combat online misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic. It requests that US tech giants produce monthly reports containing “detailed data” on how they are combatting fake news about COVID-19 on their platforms.

Google, Facebook, and Twitter are the prime targets of this campaign. The three companies told The Verge they would be complying with the EU’s requests. Exactly what steps they will take, though, and when they might start producing reports is unknown. It is also unknown what all of this will mean regarding the future of advertising.

Undress to impress: Does Instagram prioritize nudity?

European Data Journalism Network and AlgorithmWatch hired 26 volunteers that would participate in an experiment. Specifically, the volunteers had to install an add-on on their browser and follow a group of professional content creators on Instagram. As a result of this study, the percentage of content by these creators involving nudity in comparison to other posts will amaze you.
