Facebook works with a range of organizations to help protect people on the Facebook app and Instagram. For example, as part of the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism, we work with other organizations by sharing “hashes”—or digital fingerprints—of certain harmful content, such as violent terrorist imagery or videos. This allows both Facebook and other services across the internet to rapidly detect and remove violating content, such as terrorist propaganda.
