Facebook admits it didn’t do enough to prevent Myanmar violence

Hong Kong (CNN Business)Facebook has admitted it failed to do enough to prevent its platform being used to fuel political division and bloodshed in Myanmar.

The company on Monday released a report that it commissioned into the damage caused in the Southeast Asian country by abuses of its social network, including efforts to whip up hatred against the Rohingya, a persecuted Muslim minority group.
The report highlights yet another case of Facebook struggling to manage the rapid spread of hate and misinformation across one of its platforms — and the impact of those failings on society.
