Facebook tests anti-hate speech feature in News Feed hours before developer conference starts
Would you consider the last thing you saw on Facebook to be hate speech?
On Tuesday morning, Facebook began testing a feature that allows users to report posts on their News Feed as hate speech by clicking a button.
The only issue: some users reported seeing the feature on every single piece of user-generated content in their feeds, including advertisements.
The feature has disappeared now, but not before several eagle-eyed Twitter users spotted it.
According to several first-hand reports, Facebook users were seeing a button asking "Does this post contain hate speech?" on all of their News Feed posts, along with options to select "Yes" or "No."
