Facebook has recently been criticized for repeatedly using its carefully crafted message to respond to recent issues concerning its data leaks, manipulation of its ad platform, and the use of its services to promote violence.
It was said that by saying “we were too slow”, the social network used a carefully crafted message that admits fault, but maintains the assumption that the company can be better and faster in the future. Critics, however, say that perhaps Facebook is just being naive, negligent or even ill-equipped to police its platform.
However, Facebook may now be looking for outside help instead of merely focusing its internal efforts. It is expected that its talent deal with London’s Bloomsbury AI will augment the work already being done by its internal teams and fact-checking programs.
