Facebook Inc is starting to warn some users they might have seen “extremist content” on the social media site, the company reported.
Screenshots shared on Twitter showed a notice asking “Are you concerned that someone you know is becoming an extremist?” and another that alerted users “you may have been exposed to harmful extremist content recently.”
Both included links to “get support”.
The world’s largest social media network has long been under pressure from lawmakers and civil rights groups to combat extremism on its platforms, including US domestic movements involved in the January 6 Capitol riot.
Facebook said the small test, which is only on its main platform, was running in the United States as a pilot for a global approach to prevent radicalisation on the site.
