EXPOSED: Facebook Used As Tool To Spread Hatred For Religion

Internal Facebook documents showed that while the company enjoyed a surge of popularity in India in 2019, researchers were warning that the company's services were filled with religious hate speech between the nation's Hindu and Muslim populations.

In 2019 researchers monitored a test account from February to March that quickly became awash with bigotry, misinformation and celebrations of violence that one report would eventually link to the deadly February 2020 religious riots in Delhi that killed 53 people, The Washington Post reports.

"The test user's News Feed has become a near constant barrage of polarizing nationalist content, misinformation, and violence and gore," one Facebook researcher wrote in the report.

"I've seen more images of dead people in the past three weeks than I've seen in my entire life total."
