At Facebook, we’re committed to giving people a voice and keeping them safe.

Since 2016, we've used a strategy called "remove, reduce, inform" to manage content across Facebook technologies.

This means we remove harmful content that goes against our policies, reduce the distribution of problematic content that doesn’t violate our policies, and inform people with additional context so they can decide what to click, read or share.

To help with this strategy, we have policies that describe what is and isn’t allowed on our technologies. Our teams work together to develop our policies and enforce them. Here’s how it works.

1

We collaborate with global experts in technology, public safety and human rights to create and update our policies.
